Jimmy Choo Men’s Preview

You know a Men’s footwear collection is good when you want to purchase at least half of the selection.  That is the case with Jimmy Choo‘s S/S 13 collection.

For next season, the brand is proposing a quirky take on contemporary classics such as the Belgian loafer and Chelsea boots.  Yarn-dyed uppers feature intarsia prints of garden critters and contrast piping.  New cap toe patterns add a touch of exotic skins to burnished finishes.  And who wouldn’t love to the multi-colored tassels on a sleek slip-on?

The winners, however, have to be the new “athletic hybrids”: the perfect blend of vulcanized outsoles with classic oxford, loafer or brogue uppers. The double monk strap in brown is sure to be a hit come next season, as well as the camo-print lace-up.  But gentlemen, you will have to exercise patience as these probably won’t ship until next year. -Jenn Tello
