When I came across this Jimmy Choo pump, I was surprised to see stud ornamentation. The brand’s aesthetic is known more for their glamorous, ladylike silhouettes, especially when it comes to the Abel pump. The Abel silhouette is a Jimmy Choo classic that’s clean and refined. These mixed-finish studs are a bit edgy for the brand, and it’s a nice change-up. After looking at this design, I instantly thought of Christian Louboutin’s signature studded designs.
When I think of a brand that frequently incorporates studs, I can’t help but think of Louboutin; he has used everything from solid-color to mixed-finish studs on his shoes for years. While Choo may not use studs as frequently, I’m having a hard time choosing which designer did it best. Let’s hear your vote in the comments!
