What will women do in the name of fashion? The same thing most males will do in anticipation for the newest edition of Halo. Wait in line for hours to be the first to get their hands (or should I say feet) on the product, despite weathering conditions.
Saturday November 14th marked the release date for the infamous Jimmy Choo for H&M line which included handbags, accessories, first ever edition clothes, and, of course, shoes. Lines of women and their pitied boyfriends formed far before midnight on Friday at H&M stores across the country and abroad (check out the frenzy before a store in Lausanne, Switzerland above). While some opinions of the affordable line by the designer were that 'you get what you pay for' (affordable price= cheaper quality?), others were less cynical and thrilled at the ability, for the first time ever, to have more than one Jimmy Choo label donning their wardrobe.
Photos from the line revealed lots of strappy stilettos, zebra print, suede, boots, leather jackets, neons, and lots of embellishments.
Yes, they're only shoes, but this is America and we love our labels (especially at a fourth of the price) perhaps one day little old Austin,Texas will be able to join the fun... maybe that's asking too much at this point in our growth. Until then, my replacement store, ZARA.
