A capsule that was born not only for taste but also for real sharing of values, those that Sailor Moon has always represented and that Sandra Choi, creative director of the brand, has recognized as the same ones that drive the philosophy of the Choo collections: "When I discovered the world of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon I was struck by the number of parallels to Jimmy Choo. The shared values ​​of transformation, individuality and female empowerment presented us with an authentic story right from the start” , the director explained to MFFashion.

Not yet shared on Jimmy Choo's social channels, the photos of the capsule began to travel on Instagram and the models immediately conquered the hearts of fashion and Sailor Moon addicts, realizing the dream of many of us who grew up in the 90s on bread and Sailor Moon: Wearing warrior accessories for real. The style of the manga thus becomes luxury and glam but faithful to the original illustrations that are transformed into shoes and accessories to wear in our daily universe.

“The idea of ​​transformation, when fused with accessories, is at the heart of the collaboration, with shoes playing a vital role in the metamorphosis of the superheroines. Pretty guardian Sailor Moon manages to be both nostalgic and modern at the same time. It reflects the girl power phenomenon of the early 2000s, which is making a comeback ,” added the designer.
