Here They Go Again

Move along H&M. Jimmy Choo is at it once again. Now they’ve teamed up with Ugg to create a limited edition collection. According to WWD, the two footwear labels will launch a five-piece collection in October based on the construction of Ugg’s sheepskin boots “with design details that embody the spirit of the Jimmy Choo brand,” the two companies said in a statement.

Tamara Mellon, president and founder of Jimmy Choo, said that alongside her own label, “Ugg Australia is the only other footwear I have in my wardrobe.”

As expected, these babies won't come cheap...prices will range from $595 to $795 and the collection will be carried at select Jimmy Choo and Ugg Australia retail and online stores, as well as at certain department and specialty stores that carry Jimmy Choo.

So what do you guys think? Are you willing to spend that much money? Guess we'll have to wait and see how they turn out...

No, no, no! Hunter yes - despite them costing the earth but uggs no. Yuk!

Yes Helena, I meant to mention Hunter but left it out! Thx for pointing that out :) And I totally agree with you Anna. Can't wait to see how they turn out.

Hmmm....very interesting. I'm not an Ugg fan but very curious to see what the final result is.

If I'm buying Jimmy Choos they won't be Uggs, although I am interested to see what they come up with.
