Featuring Social Media Influencer Fatima Al Momen

The collection reflects Creative Director Sandra Choi’s overarching collection inspiration of dancing Choos, disco and sparkle, dressing up for a night out and telling the story of Kuwait after-dark.

Jimmy Choo’s Cruise 2018 collection is all about celebration, referenced by fireworks arching across a darkened sky, colored beams of light cutting across a dance floor and the twinkling panorama of a night-time cityscape viewed from below. It deploys richness and sophistication to ignite a collection that radiates brilliance and infectious energy designed to transfix the watcher and transport the wearer. Headline fabrications from the Jimmy Choo Cruise 2018 collection includes gems inlaid into heels, pearl-encrusted leather, playful lamé fringing and cut crystal brooches are conversations running through the collection while Jimmy Choo signature glitter dances across shoes and bags.

The Talk editorial team had the chance to get ‘up and close’ to shoot the new Jimmy Choo Cruise 2018 collection and if there is one socialite that fully embodies the new product range and inspiration behind these stunning pieces of art, it is Fatima Al Momen. The former architect-turned-social media influencer and entrepreneur is no stranger to versatility and ingenuity within the high-fashion industry and has etched a name for herself in defying fashion conventions with conviction. She is part of a new generation of women in Kuwait who have a voice and isn’t afraid to walk the talk in style, or more precisely, in her Choos.

‘I love spending time with my girls and my busy schedule doesn’t always allow me to be here at all times, which means I often miss celebrating  their achievements or special occasions so when I’m here and the girls are getting together for a fun night out, I pull all the stops to ensure the night is celebrated in style. The new Jimmy Choo Cruise 2018 collection is the pinnacle of footwear and accessories and no choice can possibly be the wrong one” – Fatima Al Momen

Jimmy Choo’s classic Romy 100 also gets an update this season with a black sequin embroidery mixed into its famous design for additional hints of glitz and glamour on the dance floor. Paired with the new gold-etched metallic spazzolato LOCKETT MINI to complete the look, and the shimmering lights of town will come to life to dazzle that confident, playful and non-conforming walk.

The Jimmy Choo woman is not afraid to show personality, passion and strength, and the burgundy satin platform sandal, with its coarse glitter heel, is this season’s statement piece for those who abide by those characteristics, perfectly matching the new LOCKETT MINI black suede shoulder bag with its champagne sprayed glitter touch.
