Jimmy Choo 24/7 Capsule Collection

Jimmy Choo is hot on our radar with news this week that just keeps getting better. While the photos of their collaboration with H&M have come out (and we are beyond excited for November 14th!), they have also announced Choo 24/7, a capsule collection of their bestsellers updated with new colors and finishes.

The 28 chosen styles that will be revealed at the upcoming Milan Fashion Week will be available to the general public of shoe-addicts come January in Jimmy Choo stores and high-end department stores. Unfortunately, these won’t be any cheaper than the existing Jimmy Choo’s as prices will range from $395 to $1,200. However, Tamara Mellon, founder and president of the company, can help us all feel a bit better about making our purchases from this fabulous collection. She said, “We think of these shoes as investment pieces, timeless pieces, part of a wardrobe that every woman needs.” And honestly, we cannot agree more. A great pair of shoes is like a piece of fine art: they withstand the test of time and are absolutely beautiful to the eye (and the feet), plus with a classic shoe, you are sure to be pulling them out of your closet all the time, season after season. January can’t come soon enough!
