British Invasion 2012- Jimmy Choo’s New ‘Union Jack’ Collection
Call it a case of Olympic & Middleton Mania as Jimmy Choo’s latest range features bold Britannia symbology just in time for Kate & Will’s first anniversary.
Regardless of the timing, the Jimmy Choo ‘Union Jack’ collection boasts must-have updates to signature shapes emblazoned with a rendering of the British flag with a favorite of ours being the playful take on a classic loafer (below).
With the eyes of the world squarely on London this season, and in celebration of the brand’s British heritage, Jimmy Choo offers an exclusive wardrobe of Union Jack accessories poised to make their own British Invasion.
The Jimmy Choo interpretation of the red, white and blue Union flag is printed on white denim for the collection of shoes, bags and small leather goods, for both the Jimmy Choo girl and Jimmy Choo man.
For her, any casual outfit can be accessorized with the OPAL tote bag, WHEEL slipper or the FILIPA purse punked up with metallic studs. The Union Jack printed acrylic CANDY bag is the perfect accessory to take any outfit from day to night.
The Jimmy Choo man can show British pride with the ALBANY fold wallet, CHILTERN chain wallet, BEAUFORT trainer or the SLOANE evening slipper.
SOHO, the cotton cashmere scarf is perfect for him or her.
Those enjoying the summer of outdoor events can also wave the banner by sporting the ALEX, the ‘80s-inspired, easy-to-wear, square-shaped acetate sunglasses which feature the Jimmy Choo interpretation of the Union Jack print on the inside of the frame and the side arms, for an irresistible touch of patriotic glamour.
