Priced for Reality

For months now, the date has been staring back at me from my Outlook calendar: November 14, the day that the collaboration between Jimmy Choo and H&M becomes retail reality. Choo shoes, handbags and clothing will grace select H&M stores across the country. It’s another in a string of 510300partnerships between high-end designers and real-world retailers. For those of us who aren’t holding on to hope for a real pair of Jimmy Choos in our closets, these design partnerships are as close as we can get.

More and more designers are jumping on the real-world design bandwagon. And more and more frequently, shoe designers are getting in on the fun.

071725_4_490x490Vera Wang’s line for Kohl’s, Simply Vera, features some well-priced and beautifully designed shoes that I’m just itching to get my hands on. These motorcycle boots are perfect for fall.

Most recently, Project Runway alum Christian Siriano has been bringing designer shoe wear to the masses through a partnership with Payless. These Saunter flats, for example, are super chic with their snakeskin print and medallion, and ring it at a cool $29.99.

Miss Mojito can’t get enough of the mix of designer aesthetic and wallet-friendly pricetags!

  1. An ad by H&M was placed in NYC transit papers in the weeks before fashion week, and i have to say a lot of people are talking about it and most new yorkers have put the date in their blackberries/iphones. Stella McCartney, Cavalli… H&M knows how to step out of the “cheap chic” role to impress us.
