THE NEW LOAFERS: BORROWED FROM THE BOYS
Tedi, Marti and Marlo: Jimmy Choo’s Cruise collection has borrowed from the boys
'The Power Player' style inspired by the men’s collections
THE POWER PLAYER
Ultra-chic with a crystal chevron pattern adorning the upper – identical to the buckle of the signature Lockett handbag – the Marti loafer is finished with a stacked heel and leather lining for comfort. Whether it’s in tactile velvet, coloured suede or crushed black patent leather, it will instantly transform everyday looks.
For him: For a Sunday brunch outfit that will win you style points, team the velvet pair with a turtleneck or slogan jumper and cotton-twill chinos.
For her: The patent leather style is the perfect partner to a second-skin knit dress and an oversized trench coat, while suede or velvet will effortlessly elevate dark skinny jeans and a silk blouse. Just don’t forget the bucket bag.
THE SARTORIAL STAPLE
With a super-soft lining, the Tedi loafer is plush, playful and your new modern muse. Made in Italy with a round toe and a high shine, the brushed-leather style comes in black and aubergine and is set on a stacked heel for subtle height.
For him: Opt for the black pair for day to lend a pinstripe suit an eclectic edge*.
For her: Style wide-legged trousers or a wool piqué mini skirt with black Marti loafers for sleek office-friendly style.
THE AFTER-DARK ESSENTIAL
Inspired by the men’s bestselling Sloane shoe, the slipper-style Marlo has plenty of after-dark appeal. Finished with a leather lining and a thick sole, it comes in smoky blue, embellished with coarse glitter, or dusk blue with Jimmy Choo’s signature dégradé hotfix crystals. Just think of the styling potential.
For him: Go for dressed-down dapper with the dusk-blue Marlo*, a cotton-velvet tuxedo jacket and cropped trousers. Technicolour socks are optional.
For her: Catch every eye in the room by wearing the glitter-embellished Marlo with a sequin slip dress and swept-back hair.
