Jimmy Choo to Design for H&M

Jimmy Choo for H&M

Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw had an infamous obsession (addiction?) with Jimmy Choo shoes.

Be still my beating heart: H&M has tapped famed British accessories brand Jimmy Choo to create an exclusive collection of shoes and bags which will be sold at about 250 H&M stores worldwide launching November 14, 2009.

Jimmy Choo will also create a women's clothing range to complement the accessory capsule. Still standing? There's good news for the guys, too: This exciting collab will include a men's collection of shoes, bags and accessories.

"We are privileged to be among the fashion greats who have been affiliated with H&M, to be designing a collection that will appeal to fashion-savvy, street-smart women and to be including some great pieces for men, too," says Tamara Mellon, Founder and President, Jimmy Choo.

I've had a soft spot for Tamara ever since I saw her appearance on The Oprah Show, she came across as a strong, wildly ambitious entrepreneur and a devoted mother. Props to her for creating one of the most coveted shoe brands in the world, and for teaming up with a fashion-fast giant so we can get in on the fun!

The press release simply said "Jimmy Choo shoes" so yes, I believe those are Jimmy Choo and NOT H&M. Thx.

ZOMG so excited!!! But I always thought Carrie Bradshaw was obsessed with Manolo Blahniks and not Jimmy Choos.

I think she loved Manolos most, but Carrie also wore Louboutins and Choos a lot while racking up that $40,000 shoe debt :-)
