Jimmy Choo to design wellies

January 7, 2009 |  8:15 am

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 Clearly, she means this shot of Kate Moss at the 2005 Glastonbury Festival.

When: The boots will be available this June on, 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.
