The Vices Collection by Jimmy Choo and Mat Collishaw

October 16, 2014 by Ishah

Envy, seduction and the uncontrollable yearning for objects of beauty is a theme that Jimmy Choo entrusted British artist Mat Collishaw to bring to his latest collection ‘Vices’.

The Vices collection comprises of bags and shoes bejewelled in diamond, ruby, emerald, jet, sapphire, black diamond and citrine crystal gemstones, symbolising the seven deadly sins. Similarly within Mat Collishaw’s oeuvre we are drawn to these qualities of penetrating beauty unaware of their morbid and sometimes repulsive realities. Collishaw and Choo collaborate to create an impressive crystallised metropolis, full of energy and enchantment for the limited edition capsule collection. Collishaw explains the keys of his success, ‘There were two recurring themes in the designs I saw that I thought could work well together. Firstly, the coloured jewel stones that refracted light and had their origins in primordial caves. Secondly, the super-high-tech tower blocks that also glimmered with light and refracted the life of the city. I wanted to evoke the aura of primal urges emerging in these modern technologically advanced environments’.
