The first images of footwear guru The first images of footwear guru Jimmy Choo’s team-up with contemporary artist Rob Pruitt have been revealed, with the eagerly anticipated collection comprising shoes and bags adorned with the artist’s trademark panda motifs .

The recently unveiled line showcases highlights such as the iconic Jimmy Choo Anouk pump reimagined with the artist’s signature use of dégradé colour in orange, pink, and yellow overlaid with French lace.

Pruitt, who is best known for his glittering panda bear paintings and large-scale dégradé canvases, created several original designs that were realised for the capsule collection — that makes nods to his playful artistic themes.

The artist created a unique duo of angel and devil pandas symbolising the dual personalities of the Jimmy Choo woman, and these feature heavily in the line of 19 styles of shoes, bags and accessories.

“The panda is a recurring image seen throughout the body of my artwork. It’s a symbol that reminds us both to tread lightly and to appreciate the adorable. They represent the harmony of yin and yang,” said the artist.
