Jimmy Choo is now Payless Choo!

After so many ads and two launching events, including one the 13th November in London (where Vogue took part) Jimmy Choo for H&M is finally open for fashionistas!

Last Saturday 14th November, H&M opened its high-street doors worldwide!

Anxious audiences even slept in tents the night before to be the first ones to enjoy such an anticipated collection of fashion and accessories for men and women.

A 23-year-old boy who was out in London streets early in the morning, said: “It was raining and there were around 20 people, not only girls, but boys in tents at 6:15 a.m. in front of Knightsbridge’s H&M.”

The opening day was quite chaotic in some London popular H&M stores such as in Oxford Street, where more than a hundred of people were queuing.

Hell for leather

More than a John Galliano, Domenico Dolce or Stefanno Gabbana taste, leather is a British high-street fashion.

More than warming, leather is provocative, innovative and irreverent. Is simply a strong essential in every wardrobe.

More than accessories, you can even wrap yourself with this material, and if you don’t like the classic black leather go for bronze or joyful colours. Of course, more than the attitude, you’ll need the silhouette to wrap up and show-off a leather body.

According to Vogue magazine (November issue), this season, Tomas Maier at Bottega Veneta and Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton gave leather a buttery chamois texture and worked into pretty shapes that feel refreshingly light to wear.

Vogue noticed a £195 laser-cut leather jacket by Cos. It doesn’t warm, but with a cashmere sweater underneath you’ll be warm enough.

On its side, Bazaar magazine shows the brit model of the moment, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley striking a note of playful glamour in posh leather articles, such as a ludicrous £6,195 leather studded jacket from Yves Saint Laurent; a Marc Jacobs £985 leather bag; an Armani stunning crocodile leather jacket, £4,400; a Chanel £3,050 leather skirt; a Fendi £575 leather bustier; and more.

Every outfit can has a rock and roll touch, and leather is what spices it up.

In addition, it could vary from classic, to really chic-punk. Any how, leather is girls’ dark side, that’s why “leather” equals “sexy”.

Cosmopolitan magazine covered its pages with some basic but stunning leather photographs by  Tom Corbett, showing how to toughen up the wardrobe with this season’s staples.

Black is the punky and ruling colour, but not the only stylish one, so white comes to light, as a way to wear leather with class. Fashion stylist, Shelly Vella, show us how.
