Jimmy Choo is to collaborate with Rob Pruitt on a new capsule cruise collection for its spring/summer 2013 range.

The fashion house will join forces with the contemporary artist - who is known for his array of colourful work - on a capsule cruise collection, and the brand is hoping his influence will lead to the creation of some ''very collectable and uniquely beautiful'' products.

Jimmy Choo creative directors Sandra Choi and Simon Holloway said: ''We were captivated by Pruitt's energy, his computer screen use of colour and the festive exuberance of his prints and materials; there were elements in his work that reminded us in subtle ways of the Jimmy Choo design iconography.

''We sensed that Rob's twist on Jimmy Choo glamour would yield something very collectable and uniquely beautiful.''

The collection will feature shoes, small leather accessories and handbags, and it is expected to arrive in Jimmy Choo boutiques and online in November 2012.

Rob Pruitt is born in 1964 in Washington D.C and is a visual artist based in New York City. In the late Eighties he gained art-world attention for his colourful, pop art-influenced work.

In 2011 Rob Pruitt unveiled the "Andy Monument," a seven-foot-tall, chrome-finished statue of Andy Warhol in New York.

In his latest exhibition 'Pattern and Degradation' he put an installation of glitter panda paintings which has never been shown before and is the largest number of panda paintings to be shown together.
