Kaia Gerber has partnered with the team at Jimmy Choo on a capsule collection.

The model, who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford, is fronting the luxury footwear brand’s marketing imagery for a third season.

But in addition to appearing in the spring/summer 2020 campaign, with the images captured by Craig McDean, Kaia has also worked alongside creative director Sandra Choi on an exclusive line.

“I jumped at the chance to work with Sandra on my dream capsule of shoe and boot styles, it was such an honour to be able to brainstorm creatively and I am so thrilled with the result,” she commented. “I wanted an effortless on/off duty wardrobe that could work with any look in a colour palette that talked to my Cali roots while adapting to any city, at any time, anywhere.”

Inspired by the popular Cruz boot, a style Kaia has adopted as one of her wardrobe staples, the capsule is comprised of four designs. Presented in a colour palette of earthy tones and black, along with printed snake and suede fabrics, the line includes the K-CRUZ lace-up combat, the K-JESSE Western boot, as well as the K-SLINGBACK and K-SLIDE, both of which are balanced on low heels and have a hint of ’90s retro minimalism.

And Sandra is delighted with the final result.

“Kaia is a modern supermodel, she represents the archetypal Jimmy Choo muse for a new era. Off the catwalk, Kaia has a signature personal style that is the epitome of effortless cool,” the designer praised. “From her first campaign with us, Kaia has worn our Cruz combat, it became her go-to and that led us to have a conversation about collaborating on her capsule shoe wardrobe.”

Fifteen per cent of all sales from the Jimmy Choo x Kaia capsule will be donated to the 18-year-old’s charity of choice, the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Loewe has unveiled a collection influenced by the work of British ceramicist William De Morgan.

Jonathan Anderson, creative director of the Spanish heritage fashion house, took to Instagram on Monday morning to announce the launch of the capsule line, which includes both ready-to-wear items and accessories.

“The work of British ceramicist William De Morgan is celebrated in Loewe’s new capsule collection conceived as a world of colour, texture and playful imagination. De Morgan was renowned for his Arts and Crafts tile designs. Now, his fantastic creatures and floral arabesques are celebrated in LOEWE’s capsule collection of ready-to-wear, accessories and charms for both men and women,” he wrote alongside a campaign image. “Certain details are enlarged on coats and bags, while others are hand-stitched onto oversized scarves and knitwear. Some garments, such as a woollen dragon’s tail, or a horned knitted beanie, remake the wearer as a monster themselves. This is a collection in which the imagination is set free, and the magical is blended with the everyday.”

The campaign was shot by Craig McDean and styled by Benjamin Bruno. Models including Jamily Wernke Meurer and Marcel Korusiewicz feature in the images.

The William De Morgan capsule collection will be available to purchase from 14 November. Prices have not been announced.

And it appears the initial reaction to the concept is overwhelmingly positive, with fashion critic Tim Blanks commenting, “SUBLIME!!!!!!!” on Instagram, and model Liya Kebede adding: “So good.”

De Morgan was known for his intricate tiles, stained glass, and furniture, with his designs often based on Medieval or Islamic patterns. He died at the age of 77 in 1917.

Emma Stone is pictured posing in the California desert for her debut Louis Vuitton campaign.

The La La Land star was named as the new ambassador of the French luxury label in October (17) and shot her debut campaign with Craig McDean last month (Feb18).

Emma’s first three campaign photos dropped on Thursday, with the marketing imagery depicting her standing in various fields while clutching new versions of Vuitton’s classic Capucines handbags.

A representative for the company told WWD that the images embody “a heroine who is daring, confident and always on the move.”

One picture shows her standing in a black dress with paisley print fabric on the sleeves which is matched with a pair of knee-high black leather boots. She holds onto a blush-pink handbag, while a rusty billboard showing the letter ‘V’ is apparent in the background.

The second image shows Emma gazing into the distance while sporting a red and purple paisley print dress and holding a crimson alligator leather bag, and another sees her leaning against a wooden fence while outfitted in a black, yellow, blue and peach paisley number and donning a white cross-shoulder purse.

In addition to starring in the campaign, the 29-year-old has recently stepped out on the red carpet in a number of Louis Vuitton looks, including the chic burgundy and navy pantsuit she wore to the 2018 Academy Awards, and the lemon-yellow and grey minidress she donned for the Vanity Fair after-party.

Emma has been cautious about entering into fashion partnerships in the past, though Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere has had her on his radar since he joined the label in 2013.

“The first name I mentioned was Emma’s, but it takes time to set up a dialogue,” he explained in a recent interview with W magazine.
