If you don't know already (and you should) Jimmy Choo has collaborated with H&M for a high street range, going into selected stores on Saturday 14th November.
The Jimmy Choo brand was launched in 1996 by shoe designer Jimmy Choo & Tamara Mellon, Vogue accessories editor and was catapulted into the public eye when Sarah Jessica Parker first donned a pair of Jimmy Choo stiletto's as 'Sex and the City's Carrie.
The brand is popular with numerous celebrities and it is no suprise that the fashion press have given their attention to the collaborative range with popular high street chain H&M. H&M has previously collobrated with clothing designer Roberto Cavalli, Stella McCartney and pop Queen Madonna but this is the stores first outing with Jimmy Choo.
The collection comprises of pumps, heels, clothing, accessories and jewellery. The range retains the glamorous Jimmy Choo look - strappy sandals, buckles and animal print feature in the collection with reasonable price points - prices range from £14.99 jewellery items to £180 boots, all in all fairly reasonable for die-hard Choo fans who want to own a statement piece but don't quite have the bank balance for the main collection.
The Jimmy Choo for H&M launch party was certainly a celeb 'who's-who'; Paris Hilton attended the event wearing my second favourite piece from the collection - the £39.99 black jumpsuit. The Hilton heiress paired the jumpsuit with another piece from the range, the £39.99 pink box clutch.
Stores are bound to be mobbed on launch day this Saturday so if you really want to get your hands on a piece of the collection then get there early and be prepared to queue! I think for the sake of my purse and my own personal safety I may stay away but I will leave you with my favourite item of the collection. Behold these gorgeous metallic blue sandals, perfect with a silver structured dress...
