A new collection of jimi hendrix– inspired shoes and accessories created by the shoe designer John Fluevog in partnership with the company Experience Hendrix, which oversees the guitar legend’s legacy, will be available from this month.
The John Fluevog + Jimi Hendrix collection includes The Stand Up Electric Lady and The Tudor Jimi boots, as well as a uniquely designed bag, belts and bracelets.
The designs were inspired by Hendrix’s life, music, lyrics, art and fashion sense, and Fluevog and his team worked closely with Jimi’s family to create items that pay homage to rock icon.
The Stand Up Electric Lady is a high platform boot with silk scarf lacing, while the Tudor Jimi is an ankle boot that sports a braided appliqué. Both boots will be available in variants with gold embroidery or purple velvet. The velvet used in the boots features examples of Hendrix’s handwriting.
“I feel such a sense of privilege to be connected to a cultural icon at the level of Jimi Hendrix,” Fluevog said in a statement. “We dug deeper into Jimi’s clothing, style and general background; you can imagine her rocking the streets of London in this picture-perfect collection. We’re so proud of that and we’d like to think that Jimi would be thrilled with our collective efforts.
Add Jane Hendrix, Jimi’s sister and CEO of Experience Hendrix, “If ever a product line was inspired by the very essence of the Hendrix Experience, this is it. Fluevog really captured Jimi’s style and energy and created pieces that could very well have come out of his closet. The “wow effect” that Jimi showed off every time he appeared is definitely there!”
The Hendrix collection will be available in stores and on the John Fluevog website from January 27.
