London: Fashion designer Jimmy Choo is to collaborate with Rob Pruitt on a new collection for its spring/summer 2013 range. The fashion house will join forces with the contemporary artist Pruitt, who is known for his array of colourful work, on a capsule cruise collection, as reported.
"We were captivated by Pruitt's energy, his computer screen use of colour and the festive exuberance of his prints and materials; there were elements in his work that reminded us in subtle ways of the Jimmy Choo design iconography.
"We sensed that Rob's twist on Jimmy Choo glamour would yield something very collectable and uniquely beautiful," Choo's creative directors Sandra Choi and Simon Holloway said.
The collection will feature shoes, small leather accessories and handbags, and it is expected to arrive in Choo boutiques and online in November 2012.
