Designer Collaboration Alert - Jimmy Choo for H&M

H&M never fails to surprise me. I just found out that the clothing mogul H&M chose Jimmy Choo as the next designer guest collaboration to launch a collection of shoes, bags and accessories for both men and women. Jimmy Choo will also be creating a womenswear collection. This is the first time H&M has teamed up with an accessories brand. I guess we all need to start saving up for this milestone collaboration. The limited edition collection will be available at 200 H&M stores worldwide on November 14, 2009. Better mark your calendar now!

Here's H&M's press release.

“We are privileged to be among the fashion greats who have been affiliated with H&M so far, and to be designing a collection appealing to fashion savvy, street smart women, and to be including some great pieces for men, too. Jimmy Choo will bring to H&M a sophisticated, fashion forward, accessible and glamorous collection - the perfect party pieces to buy now and then wear out that night!” Tamara Mellon, Founder and President, Jimmy Choo.

“We adore Jimmy Choo’s shoes and bags. They are glamorous and sexy, and they add instant style to the simplest of outfits. I like the way we have worked with clothes to accessorize the shoes and bags rather than the other way around. This collaboration is particularly exciting because it’s our first shoe designer collection. It’s a joy to be able to offer top end designer shoes and bags of excellent quality to our customers.” Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor, H&M.
