Jimmy Choo are doing a collaboration with H&M next week, I think I need to be there to get a new bag. Will you be there?
Bet I won't be popular with DS's pram!

What? What? What? What?

<rubs eyes>

Really? grin

Oh god, I've just realised that's a Sat.
It will be horrendous!
At least it means I can leave DS with his dad

Fruitbatlings Fri 06-Nov-09 12:25:23

That's going straight into the Diary!
<Tipex's out important stuff to do>

In all stores?
Oh god, it'll be manic won't it.....

I'm not bothering with shoes, they'll be far too high for me, I don't do heels very well.

Nezzi Fri 06-Nov-09 12:28:55

The rubbishy H&M website says it's in 200 of their stores. All the big city ones I guess.
I can't even view the collection on my laptop, the site is one of those "flash" type fancy affairs.

A pram - are you serious?

I won't be there as the thought of having to queue up in the cold, then negotiate the pushing and elbowing of hundreds of women does nothing for me. I find H&M a nightmare at the best of times.

The collection will no doubt sell out and be hailed a success, but I'm a bit hmm on the overall effect on the Jimmy Choo brand. What next Louboutin @Tesco?

How delightfully snobby.



Nezzi Fri 06-Nov-09 12:42:21

Don't know anything about a pram...

I wouldn't be going if I was in London, I don't fancy the fight in Oxford St but I'm in Manchester so I'll give it a go.
I'm a bit sceptical too but I could never afford a Jimmy Choo in Harvey Nicks so H&M it will be.
Anya Hindmarch did a collection for Target in the US so maybe I'll keep an eye on the Tesco website...
Thank you H&M smile

Disenchanted3 Fri 06-Nov-09 12:43:34

Ooh I'm in Manchester Nezzim, but def won't be there!

Nezzi Fri 06-Nov-09 12:46:18

I know what you mean Disenchanted, I'm already having second thoughts. It will be hellish!

CHOOGIRL Fri 06-Nov-09 12:56:20


Have previously worked in branding so was using my professional hat, not my consumer one. FWIW I think the quality will be good but whether you are in Manchester or London the queue will be hellish.

Nezzi Fri 06-Nov-09 13:02:48

Can you imagine the re-selling on EBay!

Disenchanted3 Fri 06-Nov-09 13:03:16

Lol choogirl grin

Nezzi Fri 06-Nov-09 13:08:47

Forgiven Choogirl.
I think I'd be very shock if I saw Mulberry in ASDA but then I'd still buy it. Never one to miss a bargain!

Nezzi Fri 06-Nov-09 13:20:31

Disenchanted - I think you're the 1st Manc I've seen on here.
I'm sure there's lots of us (I play I spy the MNer at the shops) I wonder if I've spotted you..?

traceybath Fri 06-Nov-09 14:02:56

I totally agree Choogirl - but think Jimmy Choo is not quite as prestigious as it once was.

Having seen photos of the range in grazia its not really my cup of tea.

Now the stell mccartney stuff for kids is a different matter - totally gorgeous.

Skimummy Fri 06-Nov-09 14:20:30

I was really tempted but, having looked at the collection online, there is nothing that would really warrant battling the crowds. Some great shoes that I would be happy to buy if I came across them but I am not lining up and dealing with (other) crazed shoppers for them!

BonjourIvresse Fri 06-Nov-09 15:20:05

There no way I'm going. I saw it on LK and none of it looked spectacular, though the prices were!

LetThemEatCake Fri 06-Nov-09 16:34:04


I'd rather have 'pure' Jimmy Choo than this watered-down high street stuff. I don't like all of this collaborative malarkey. There's designer, and then there's high street and never the twain should meet except for when YOU put it together in a stylish and 'eclectic' way. Not just because they <<paranoid, looking over shoulder emoticon>> are making mega-££ out of it.

Nezzi Fri 06-Nov-09 17:06:53

Because Jimmy Choo don't make a bloomin fortune out of their shoes anyway?!

MarshaBrady Fri 06-Nov-09 17:12:56

No, but then I'm not that bothered by Jimmy Choo shoes in any case. Prefer other stuff like Chloé shoes.

Always heard so much about all these collaborations, but the thought of the crowds puts me off. And actually, in general they don't do anything for me.

But wish everyone the best of luck if they do go - get some nice ones!

TheCrackFox Fri 06-Nov-09 17:14:01

They said on GMTV (I wasn't really paying attention) that there would be wrist bands given out for the first 200 women and they would be given 10 minutes to choose one pair of shoes. Sounds like a grim shopping experience but I think some people like being treated like cattle.

If I am ever lucky enough to own a pair of Jimmy Choos then I would like the proper ones.

LetThemEatCake Fri 06-Nov-09 17:19:06

well of course she does (old tamara Mellon-head, I mean)

But Jimmy Choo, the brand, makes no bones about what it is- a high end, luxury accessories brand. And H&M exists as a cheap-and-cheerful, mass produced high street brand.

Collaborations of this nature try to fool people into believing that H&M is suddenly "luxe" and desirable, and that Jimmy Choo is suddenly "accessible". "you too can own a piece of the Choo dream!!" I just don't like it!!
