Felicity Carter: Tell us about the fall ’21 collection.
Sandra Choi: I was inspired by the power of identity, the reformer of the street and the new youth subculture it influences. With the prevalence of social media, anyone can post anything at any time, that confidence in their identity is powerful – daring to be themselves. It reminded me of the 60s and 70s; the mood of optimism, the changing and changing society, the excitement of the future, the possibilities to come. I emphasized the volume, and the richness of the materials – the finesse of the satin, the luxurious velvet and the play of the star – Jimmy Choo’s emblem, transforming it into a repeated houndstooth pattern.
