Despite an unceremonious fall from grace in 1992, ’80s artist Rob Pruitt is making a name for himself once again in the contemporary art world, thanks in part to the chrome statue of Andy Warhol he erected on a high-traffic street corner in Manhattan’s Union Square last year. One would think that, with his irreverent creative sensibilities and the offhand, possibly misconstrued brand of “racism” that got him ousted from the scene in the first place, luxury fashion collaborations would be off the radar for this former wunderkind. Not so! Far from it, in fact — Pruitt has dreamed up an 18-piece collection for none other than Jimmy Choo, and God, is it hideous. Keep reading »

Jimmy Choo Honors 90-Year-Old Iris Apfel — With A Stiletto

Iris Apfel is the grand dame of quirky, eccentric style. And luxury shoe maker Jimmy Choo wanted to honor Apfel’s signature look by designing a shoe after her. Dubbed the Iris, the five-inch heel will almost certainly never be worn by the diminutive 90-year-old New Yorker. And we’re not sure who else will be picking up a pair either — considering they’re going for $1495 a pop. Do you think Iris digs ‘em? She is a pretty hard sell. [Jimmy Choo]

Does Tamara Mellon’s Explanation Excuse The Jimmy Choo Uggs?

Wondering how the hideous collaboration between Jimmy Choo and Ugg Australia came about? Let Tamara Mellon, Jimmy Choo founder and creative chief officer, explain:

“Uggs were my guilty pleasure until I was on a flight to London and the airline staff said, ‘We’re all so excited to see what shoes you’re wearing!’ I had Uggs on. So now we’ve done a collaboration where I took traditional Uggs and decorated them with the DNA of Jimmy Choo — animal prints and studs.”

I think we can all probably agree that Uggs were doing just fine without an injection of Jimmy Choo DNA. [The Cut] Keep reading »

Let Us Compare: Our Jimmy Choo Uggs Prediction Vs. The Real Thing

It was just too easy: When Jimmy Choo and Uggs announced their collaboration, we couldn’t resist poking fun. So we wondered … if Jimmy Choo and Uggs had a baby what would it look like? Thanks to the Photoshop magic performed by our editor, Amelia, we created “Chuggs,” a heinous high heel sheepskin bootie (left, obviously). On the right is the real thing, a fringed boot bedazzled with star studs, which all of you deemed completely “fugs.” So, which do we think is uglier—our own Photoshop rendering or the actual model?

Jimmy Choo Uggs: Adorable Or Fugs?

I’m on the fence about these blinged-out Jimmy Choo Uggs, which Nicky Hilton got an advance pair and tweeted a pic of yesterday. They’re kinda cute — like I see them cheering me up on a glum winter day. But the “limited distribution” booties cash in at over $1,000. Um, what? That’s crazy! How much craftmanship really goes into a pair of snow boots? [via Nicky Hilton’s Twitter] Keep reading »
