In case you haven't heard already, Jimmy Choo is designing a line for H&M. Featuring shoes for men and women, plus handbags and eveningwear, the pairing is noteworthy for two major reasons. For one, it marks H&M's first designer accessories collaboration—while previous ventures have been primarily clothes collections that included accessories, this one is primarily accessories, with a few clothes. And, secondly, Jimmy Choo is one of the three major players in the Designer Shoe Trifecta (the other two being Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin), and so this is a major score on H&M's part. The line hits stores November 14th, with prices for shoes at roughly $55-$138 (40-100 Euros) and bags going up to $276 (200E). Considering most Choos retail for $495-$795, this excellent news. This photo, from WWD [subscription required], is the only one available thus far, but as soon as more images turn up, I will of course post them here.

Kind of makes Carlos Falchi's collection for Target seem anti-climactic, doesn't it?
