Brace yourselves, readers: Jimmy Choo founder Tamara Mellon has announced that her brand is collaborate with Ugg Australia on a limited edition of Ugg boots. Or Ugg-Choos as we suppose we’ll have to call them.
No, we’re not making this up. Actually, it’s not a total departure for Jimmy Choo: the brand collaborated with Hunter boots last year, as well as creating their line for H&M, but Ugg boots are such a “love or loathe” (or in some cases, “loathe or loathe even more”) style that we’re sure this news will raise a few eyebrows.
The boots will retail for between £495 and £695, and will be available from October this year. What will the love child of Ugg and Jimmy Choo look like, though? We can’t wait to find out…[Shoes, Net-aPorter; Boots, Ugg Australia]
