Object of Desire: Jimmy Choo Leanne Pumps

By Kames Narayanan

Russian-born French artist Romain de Tirtoff, who goes by the pseudonym, Erté, is the source of inspiration for Jimmy Choo’s repertoire of Fall/Winter 2018 offerings. The artist, whose talents primarily span across the fields of theatre and fashion, stands amongst the most influential of the 20th century. His characteristic flamboyance, marked by luxurious silk, pearl and lush velvet is reconsidered in a mélange of contemporary silhouettes appropriated for the now. The leather Leanne ankle-strap pump is exemplary of the union of the glamour of a bygone era and a vogue silhouette. A coquettish mesh polka dot netting and a sleek heel recalls the alluring dress code of the past that is deemed fit for the contemporary woman.
