Jimmy Choo celebrated the drop of The Highlighted, its highly anticipated capsule collection with renowned South Korean stylist YK Jeong, in January with a party that saw the Dress Garden in Seoul transform into a hot clubbing scene. Besides getting a first look at the neon-accented collection showcased amid fun displays and installations, guests grooved to special performances by DJ Peggy Gou and rapper Sik-K in an illuminated 11m-high domed hall—where gigantic neon bear figurines (representative of Jeong, whose nickname is “Bear”) lined the runway.
In attendance were a host of South Korean A-listers, including actresses Gong Hyo-jin and Han Ye-seul, Blackpink’s Jisoo, Girls’ Generation’s Im Yoon-ah, and Winner’s Song Min-ho, Kang Seung-yoon and Lee Seung-hoon.
The collection introduces a new BLOAFER loafer-mule and remixes Jimmy Choo’s classic silhouettes—the DIAMOND sneaker and the LOVE pump—with fluorescent highlights of orange, yellow, blue and pink; a nod to YK Jeong’s reputation for launching Korean’s rising stars into the limelight.
The Highlighted is available at Jimmy Choo’s Paragon and Marina Bay Sands stores, as well as online.
