Cinderella Would Fall Hard for Jimmy Choo's "Glass Slippers"
Virgil Abloh may be the king of collaborations, but his latest is arguably his buzziest yet. The designer's Off-White label has partnered with iconic footwear brand Jimmy Choo for his S/S 18 runway show, and the resulting heels are ones a princess would fall head over heels for. It's fitting, as Abloh cited Princess Diana as a muse for his forthcoming collection. Abloh first hinted that Cinderella's glass slippers were an inspiration behind the shoes when he shared a picture from the classic Disney film on his Instagram.
Later, he posted a photo of the shoes you can expect to see on the runway tomorrow, pointed stilettos with a plastic covering, creating a cool glass effect. "Creative dreams were fulfilled when able to combine the young exuberance of Off-White and the storied elegance of Jimmy Choo," noted Abloh in a press release. And while the shoes may be fit for a Disney princess, we have a feeling every street style star will want to get their hands on them too!
Read on for a peek at the shoes and to shop current styles from Off-White.
