The Off-White x Jimmy Choo Collab Hits the Spring 2018 Runway [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
Off-White’s Virgil Abloh is quickly becoming everyone’s go-to collaborator. Following partnerships with Levi’s, Warby Parker and soon Ikea, the designer has now teamed up with Jimmy Choo creative director Sandra Choi on a Princess Diana-inspired collection, which made its debut at the Off-White spring 2018 runway show on Thursday. The late Princess Diana, who was known for being a big Jimmy Choo fan, served as the inspiration for Abloh’s spring line. The elegant-yet-edgy silhouettes include satin pointy-toed shoes decorated with tear-drop crystals, chisel-toe satin pumps enrobed in plastic, structured knee-high boots encased in PVC or tulle and more. This collab marks the first time Jimmy Choo has partnered with a ready-to-wear designer on a commercial shoe collection. Priced from $745 to $1,995, the Off-White x Jimmy Choo range is now available for preorder at JimmyChoo.com until Oct. 4.

Getty Images Bans Photoshopped Images of Models’ Body Shapes [ABC News]
Starting Oct. 1, Getty Images will no longer be accepting images that have Photoshopped models’ body shapes. The American stock-photo agency’s decision comes after a new French law required clients to disclose if images of models were digitally altered to be larger or thinner. However, changes in hair color, nose shape, retouching of skin or blemishes “are outside the scope of this new law, and are therefore still acceptable,” reads Getty’s site.
