Jimmy Choo for H&M

This autumn, British accessory brand Jimmy Choo will bring its international glamour and covetable shoes and bags to selected H&M stores. The collection will be available from November 14 in around 200 stores across the world. It is the first time that H&M is collaborating with an accessories brand, and to celebrate Jimmy Choo will extend its design vision for this collection to women’s clothing to complement the accessories. Further exciting news is that this collaboration includes a men’s collection of shoes, bags and accessories.
....so that's what their press release has to say. Glamour? Covetable? I wholeheartedly disagree. Sure his main line has some beautiful and sexy shoes but this line for H&M is totally underwhelming and the majority of it looks cheap and tacky! Animal print, studs, and diamantes can look nice on their own but not all of them together! Yuck.

I hate these shoes and almost every accessory

These are okay..

These are better than okay

The one item that I love and would consider purchasing is this studded dress. It's gorgeous but it looks like any other Topshop dress really.

The prices vary - a pair of ballet pumps are expected to cost from £30 and £170 for a pair of boots. This isn't so bad considering a pair of ballet flats from his main collection costs around £245 and a pair of boots around £650.

But ask yourself this - would you buy most of these if they were ordinary high street clothes/shoes? I think it's easy to get carried away
because of a designer label.

  1. I think Tamara Mellon has missed a trick here. The collection could have been so much more standout than it is. I remember when Matt Williamson did his pieces for H and M and they were gorgeous, you KNEW they were his pieces just by looking at the materials and patterns he had chosen.

    I agree totally with what you've said, she's just smashed things together hoping they would go. The only bits I really like are the flat, black studded shoes, the red heels and the blue heels but none of it is screaming out "buy me". I have a nicer pair of those gladiator heels from KG and they're far more delicate.

    Last point of this essay, why is she making flat gladiator sandals NOW? Is she not aware that we're heading into winter?

  2. To be honest I've never been a fan of these designer lines for high street stores. The only one that I really liked was Commes Des Garcons for H&M - there were some gorgeous pieces! I'm also not a fan of queuing up for ages just to be pushed and shoved when you eventually end up inside. The worst thing is that most people there are just grabbing as much as they can to flog on ebay for extortionate prices! Grr

  3. Man, I hate when people do that, or they just buy it to be seen wearing it which kinda defeats the point of fashion really.
