Jimmy Choo for men launching on Mr. Porter

By Laura on July 5th, 2011

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.

BowieAnother icon, this time the wonderful David Bowie who
is curating an H&M sponsored music festival in New York this May. The High Line festival is a new multi-discipline arts festival that will be curated by a different artist each year. Spread over ten days there will be music, comedy, film, visual art and performance all handpicked by the Thin White Duke himself. The festival is named after the area which contains the High Line, a disused
elevated rail structure soon to be a community space with wetlands and meadows which runs
through the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea and Hells
Kitchen. Bowie picks for the festival include Arcade Fire, Laurie Anderson, art by Claude Cahun and comedy with Ricky Gervais.
