Jimmy Choo Designs ‘Empire’-Inspired Shoes for Saks

Fox’s record-breaking drama “Empire” and Saks Fifth Avenue are collaborating to help cure viewers of outfit envy. This fall, the retailer will release a curated collection of fashion and accessories that reflects the show’s glam aesthetic, including a footwear collection by Jimmy Choo.

Jimmy Choo’s designs were inspired by the show’s characters, Lucious, Vince, Andre, Hakeem and Cookie. The men’s collection includes burgundy patent leather monk straps, two-tone leather sneakers, round-toe dress shoes and high-top sneakers with embossed suede uppers. A leopard print stiletto boot is available for women.

Other items include jewelry from Alexis Bittar, women’s ready-to-wear from Cushnie et Ochs and handbags and accessories from MCM. The multi-platform collection will be available in-store, online and on-screen.

Marc Metrick, president of Saks Fifth Avenue, said, “The lines between fashion and entertainment are intersecting.” He added, “Harnessing this moment is a key underpinning to our strategy as it brings energy and uniqueness to the shopping experience at Saks.”

“Empire”-curated windows will be on display at Saks Fifth Avenue’s New York and at the Beverly Hills flagship from Sept. 10-Oct. 7. The department stores will also host men’s luxury made-to-measure suiting events throughout September and October at locations across the country.
