Jimmy Choo for men launching on Mr. Porter

By Laura on July 5th, 2011 2 comments

Last December Jimmy Choo announced they were set to launch the brand’s return to footwear. And now after months of waiting, they are finally ready to launch the collection in collaboration with Mr. Porter

Given the months of hype around this new collection, I do wonder if they can possibly live up to the hype. That said if the short film ‘Walking the Line’, they created for the Men’s AW 11 collection is anything to go by, I am going to say – YES!

On a side note I love that the film is set in New York’s High Line park, as I had the chance to visit last week (see picture below). For those not familiar, the High Line was originally constructed in the 1930s, to lift dangerous freight trains off Manhattan’s streets. Recently it has been converted into a beautiful mile-and-a-half-long elevated park, running through the West Side neighborhoods of the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea and Clinton/Hell’s Kitchen. If your in New York make sure to check it out.

    Your pic of highline park looks great! What is the make/model of the camera you used?

    Thanks! It was actually just taken on my iPhone and then fixed up in Toycamera Analogcolour.
    If you are looking for an analog camera that shoots like this I would recommend the Olympus Trip 35. You can pick them up for about £15-20 on eBay.
