Jean Paul Gaultier X Jimmy Choo
Collaboration collection of footwear

The French Maison Jean Paul Gaultier and the luxury fashion accessories brand Jimmy Choo unveil the JPG X Jimmy Choo collaboration collection of footwear. A creative conversation between two fashion houses whose parallel legacies span multifaceted cultural mixes, a love of craft, and an idiosyncratic ideology of glamorous rebellion. Blending refinement and rebellion, this collaboration brings together two houses for unapologetic glamour and pioneering creativity.

Inspired by Gaultier’s ground-breaking SS94 collection ‘Les Tatouages’, the streamlined pump and over-the-knee boot serve as a canvas for an original hand-drawn design – each different size and style features a slightly different print, adding to the precious nature of these pieces. The tattoo pattern is also showcased in pavé crystals – in addition to the leather pumps – for a signature touch of Jimmy Choo glamour. Jean Paul Gaultier is synonymous with his infamous proposal of underwear as outerwear; a bold reclamation of corsetry as a symbol of modern sexual liberation for all gender identities. This notion and aesthetic is represented by the collection’s corset sling back, crafted with a distinctive double-layer design that takes our Italian artisans two hours to execute.

If the elongated toe and refined vamp of these statement wedges are emblematic of Jimmy Choo, then Jean Paul Gaultier is present in the striking wit and surreal nature of this standout design. Each of these transparent heels captures the spirit of both brands’ cities; with Paris’ Eiffel Tower and London’s Big Ben etched asymmetrically inside each heel. This style represents the fusion of two true icons, Gaultier’s signature heavy metal jewellery – evocative of the London punk scene – and Jimmy Choo’s iconic Bing mule. The asymmetric jewellery adorning this style is decorated lavishly with crystals and branded hardware. The metallic chain continues onto the back of the shoes, ensuring it makes a statement from every angle.

Featuring a playful denim trompe l’oeil print, the innovative boot can be worn two ways; as an over-the-knee leather silhouette or turned down to a mid-calf style with a denim cuff. This digitally printed effect is crafted with fabric that is washed to fix the colour, as is the traditional process to make a classic pair of jeans. The outer part of the upper and back is made from soft and supple calf leather, lined with a printed denim fabric. The fit is purposefully and delightfully generous, allowing for a dramatic silhouette. The right foot features a leather label embossed with serigraphic branding. It is set on a sleek, chiselled stiletto heel and complemented by a lacquered sole with a digitally printed logo featuring both brands.

The Jean Paul Gaultier / Jimmy Choo Nude Swarovski Pump 60 is a timeless yet daring pump crafted with a layer of finely printed tulle mounted over sheer mesh, decorated with Swarovski crystals and exclusive JPG X Jimmy Choo tattoo artwork – an original hand-drawn design inspired by the Maison Jean Paul Gaultier archive. The exclusive JPG X Jimmy Choo tattoo artwork is embellished using a hotfix application, applied in an asymmetric design that brings an element of rebellion with its bespoke placement. This sleek stiletto heel is constructed with a chiselled, elongated last in a homage to vintage Jimmy Choo styles and is finished with a lacquered sole with a digitally printed logo featuring both brand names.
