Sales and Deals: Jimmy Choo Teams Up With H&M

Forget Target and Payless, Jimmy Choo has confirmed a collaboration with H&M. The collection will include bags and of course, shoes. I remember the first time I heard of Jimmy Choo shoes, where else but on Sex and the City. Of all the designers to cash in from the dwindling recession by partnering with large retailers, Jimmy Choo is definitely the collection I'm the most excited to see (and own)! Other designers including Stella McCartney and Roberto Cavalli have previously partnered with H&M. The image above includes two designs from the line. Personally, I love the black heels.

Tamara Mellon, President and Founder of Jimmy Choo describes the line as "a sophisticated, fashion forward, accessible and glamorous collection - the perfect party pieces to buy now and then wear out that night!" The line will be sold in about 200 stores worldwide. Jimmy Choo prices range from about $700 to sometimes over $1,000. H&M has some reasonably priced products with collaborative pieces generally being a bit more expensive. Jennifer Uglialoro, an H&M spokeswoman has stated that "most of the footwear will range from $99 to $129 for boots, though there are over-the knee boots priced at $299. Shoppers can also find ballet flats for $59.95. Handbags will be priced from $59.95 to $299."

The collection will be available in stores on November 14, 2009.

Are you excited for Jimmy Choo's line for H&M?
