The influential accessories brand, Jimmy Choo, has once again collaborated with an artist to create a line of shoes, handbags and small leather goods. After the success of its collaborations with Nan Goldin, Marilyn Minter and Richard Phillips, the brand has now chosen Rob Pruitt to create its Cruise 2013 range of accessories. 

"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," Jimmy Choo creative directors Sandra Choi and Simon Holloway said. "We sensed that Rob's twist on Jimmy Choo glamour would yield something very collectable and uniquely beautiful."

Famous for his colourful pop art style work, Pruitt is expected to design a colourful Cruise range for Jimmy Choo which should enamour the luxury brand's fashion forward followers. It will be available in stores and online in November 2012.
