Jimmy Choo to design wellies

53145483W23600_dov_1 What: Limited-edition Jimmy Choo wellies, thanks to a partnership with the luxury line and Hunter, maker of the iconic Brit field boots for farmers and Londoners with stone country houses and horses. Choo designer Tamara Mellon has said: "I was inspired by images from the festivals of the hip Brit girls in their wellies." (per WGSN.com) Clearly, she means this shot of Kate Moss at the 2005 Glastonbury Festival.

When: The boots will be available this June on JimmyChoo.com, and they actually sound cute, with black embossed crocodile print, gold buckle hardware and a leopard-print lining.

Why: These "Chellies" may be the most affordable Choos yet, though prices have not yet been released. I personally love the Hunter boot in Midnight Sparkle, a traditional style with subtle sparkle added to the vulcanized rubber, which sells for about $98 (65 pounds).

Why not: Duh. We live in L.A.
