First impressions? Initially I was quite excited for this collection, but having now seen the items up close, I'm quite disappointed. I feel there's no stand out item that looks unique enough to warrant me leaving my warm bed and braving the arctic conditions that will be no doubt freestyling over my face in a months time. However, I really liked the belt when I saw it being fitted on one of the models in a preview pic a few months ago and and I still like it now. The thick chunky metal/diamante bracelet and zebra studded flats have also caught my attention ..but do I love them enough to leave my house at stupid am?! Probably not ..
I refuse to line the pockets of those who will be rushing to grab the cheaper accessories and listing them on Ebay before I've even woken up that morning if I decide not to go!
Prices will be start at £30 but personally to me, it makes no sense in forking out £200 for the most expensive item in the collection when you can save a couple hundred more pounds and get a pair of heels direct from Jimmy Choo, not H&M for Jimmy Choo which will be spotted on the feet on more than just a few girls on a Saturday night. I guess that's just the inner snob in me coming out. If I'm gonna fork out on a pair Jimmy Choo heels, I don't want to be one of 10 different girls wearing them in the same club!

What do you think? Will you be rushing to H&M at the crack of dawn to secure your spot in the anticipated queues?
Jimmy Choo for H&M will be released on November 14th in 200 stores worldwide. Clothing, bags and accessories will be launched for both men and women.
(May I just add that the 14th falls on a Saturday so the crowds are likely be even crazier than the ones seen during the past designer releases which have all fallen on a Thursday. Gah ..I think I'll stay in bed and save my energy for the Boxing Day sales!)
