This just in! The next designer partner for H & M is Jimmy Choo, the high-end heels that are loved by red carpet A-listers like Halle Berry and Cate Blanchett. The collection will launch right before the holiday season in November with shoes, bags, clothes and even a men's capsule collection. "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," says Jimmy Choo's Tamara Mellon.
