Dear ladies and gents,

Brazilian artist Rafael Mantesso and his adorable bully Jimmy (err Choo) have collaborated with his namesake to launch Choo Hound – a capsule collection of leather accessories.

The Pre-Fall 2015 collection includes tote bags, purses, cosmetic bags and iphone cases. Also launched are some seriously special leather dog collars in mirrored silver and white with chunky gold cube studs.

“The pairing of the original Jimmy Choo and doggy Choo feels cheeky and fresh,” said Courtney Scott, planning director at Huge, New York.

“I imagine Jimmy Choo aimed to heighten brand relevance by appealing to Rafael Mantesso’s design-minded, Internet born fan base,” she said. “The fact that they share a name seems like the icing on the cake.”

“This collaboration seems to be telling us that Jimmy Choo is playful, unexpected and perpetually modern. It also feels like a bold attempt to capture a younger audience for the brand.”

In a brand statement, Ms. Choi said, “All of a sudden, I had friends from all over the world forwarding me links to Rafael’s enchanting work featuring his loveable English bull terrier, Jimmy Choo. I was instantly charmed by the way he animated his captivating dog into his artwork. I had never seen anything like it!

“His work is so playful, clever and witty, and we struck up an immediate friendship online,” she said. “I just knew that I had to incorporate his work into a collection.”
