Jimmy Choo brings style influencers to Maldives for pre-fall collection shoot
British high fashion house Jimmy Choo has brought style influencers from around the world to the Maldives as part of its #Chootravels project.
Every year, Jimmy Choo brings along style influencers for #Chootravels, a project that gives life to the mood and sentiment of each season’s collection.
For 2017, Jimmy Choo made a head-start by inviting some of the world’s most stylish influencers to the Maldives to take part in an editorial shoot for the summer-ready pre-fall 2017 collection. The blue ocean at the Constance Halaveli Maldives resort provided the perfect backdrop for the collection.
The shoot, photographed by Candice Lake with hairstyle by A Ten Studio and makeup by Bobbi Brown, narrates the pre-fall 2017 collection through different facets of island life.
The influencers included Irene Kim (@ireneisgood), Yoyo Cao (@yoyokulala), Vanessa Hong (@thehautepursuit), Liz Uy (@lizzzuy), Anny Fan (@anny_styleontop), Yvonne Ching (@yvesching), Justine Lee (@justinelee425) and Jane Chuck (@janechuck).
Jimmy Choo encompasses a complete luxury accessories brand with products such as women and men’s shoes, handbags, small leather goods, scarves, sunglasses, eyewear, belts and fragrance. It has a global network of more than 141 stores, and is present in the most prestigious department and specialty stores worldwide.
Designed to reflect the curved shape of a traditional Maldivian dhoni, Constance Halaveli Maldives is located in the North Male Atoll and is accessible by a 35-minute seaplane flight from the main Velana International Airport. The resort offers beach and water villas, family villas and a presidential villa, which can include luxurious amenities of private terraces, plunge pools and more.
A range of superb fine wine-and-dining options are available, as the resort features five restaurants and bars, including the Asian and European fusion cuisine of Jing and Jahaz. A variety of traditional Japanese sushi rolls, sashimi and Maoki’s are served up at Kaika Sushi Bar, where guests can dine inside or on the terrace. Meeru provides beach dining for guests, where the remarkably white sand contrasts with the lush green forest of the island, complemented by the aqua blue ocean. During the evening, a selection of fresh seafood and meats from the à la carte menu can be grilled in front of guests, bringing authentic gastronomy to the shoreline.
Maldives is amongst the most sought after destinations by celebrity travellers from across the world.
Hollywood and Bollywood personalities as well as world-renowned music artists have all declared the Maldives as their favourite part of the world for a relaxing getaway. Sports personalities, including the likes of Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Carlos Tevez, Arjen Robben, Miroslav Klose and Franz Beckenbauer have also fell in love with the white sand beaches and the blue skies of the Maldives.
