Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Designers, News,

Rob PruittJimmy Choo is to collaborate with Rob Pruitt on a new Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

The fashion house will join forces with the contemporary artist - who is known for his array of colorful work - on a capsule cruise collection, and the brand is hoping his influence will lead to the creation of some "very collectable and uniquely beautiful" products.

"We were captivated by Pruitt's energy, his computer screen use of color 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," said Jimmy Choo creative directors Sandra Choi and Simon Holloway.

The collection will feature shoes, small leather accessories and handbags, and it is expected to arrive in Jimmy Choo boutiques and online in November 2012.
