Jimmy Choo: undisputed luxury

Jimmy Choo was born in Penang, Malaysia, but spent his formative years in London, England, where his family had a shoemaking business. Jimmy learned the trade from his father, who insisted that he spend time watching shoemakers at work before trying his hand. And so it was that, at the ripe old age of eleven, Jimmy Choo made his first pair of shoes.

It wasn’t however until 1996 that the Jimmy Choo brand first saw the light of day, with Vogue’s Tamara Mellon as co-founder. Its first collection was an overnight sensation.

Jimmy Choo introduced its new ophthalmic frame and sunwear collections in 2008, drawing on the brand’s emblematic luxury to create its own hallmark style—intense, independent, bold and most assuredly glamorous. Jimmy Choo frames add a touch of femininity and elegance to every outfit.

A few models from Jimmy Choo’s most recent collection feature details flawlessly illustrating the brand’s essence.

Metallic trim

A classic detail on Jimmy Choo accessories is the “tube-lock” bag closure. It appears here on the temples of the frame to highlight the use of textured materials.

Duets of materials

Jimmy Choo uses the classic feminine interplay of solidity and translucence to reveal just enough and no more. The concept, applied to frames, allows for an original take on “nude” shades.

Motifs

The brand’s ongoing adventures with transparency don’t close the door on motifs to spice up more conventionally styled models. Motifs can also trick the eye through detail only visible to those willing to come in for a closer look.

Glitter and crystals

Could there be luxury without glitter? Jimmy Choo accessories sparkle with ornaments, precious stones, glitter, and crystals—and the brand’s ophthalmic frames are no exception.

Metallic finish

Accessories don't have to be made of metal to make a bold statement. Jimmy Choo uses a variety of materials with a metallic finish that rounds off any look while keeping things light.
