A collaboration with JIMMY CHOO was revealed as one of the projects to mark the 30th anniversary of the “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon” serialization. The products will go on sale worldwide on February 14.
The brand will sell shoes that represent the five Sailor Guardians. The shoes are pink, light blue, red, green, and orange, with each color and design signifying a distinct character. So cute!
Comments from JIMMY CHOO, Creative Director (partial):
Sailor Moon continues to expand the circle of people, transcending cultures and languages and gaining the support of a wide range of generations. The collection reflects the shared feelings of Sailor Moon and JIMMY CHOO about female empowerment and the power of fashion to lift people up. I believe that shoes have the power to transform women. Shoes can turn the wearer into a superheroine.
