This season Jimmy Choo has found their best spokesperson – or spokescanine – Jimmy Choo the English bull terrier!
In Pre-Fall 2015, Jimmy Choo collaborates with Brazilian artist Rafael Mantesso to create a collection of accessories inspired by his dog Jimmy. This started out with Mantesso’s divorce which left him no furniture but only Jimmy in his flat. He then decided to fill the void in his house with whimsical illustrations of Jimmy in humorous scenes like kissing Tinker Bell, dreaming of shoes and shaking his martini while lounging on a sofa.

When Jimmy Choo the dog is Instagram famous, Sandra Choi, creative director and designer of the real Jimmy Choo, decided to join the two forces and present a series of wearable Instagram feeds. The Choo Hound collection includes bags, wallets, pouches, totes, iPhone cases and of course, dog collars, ranging at €55.00-€695.00. The collection is now available online.
