Hey, check it out! Preview photos of the Jimmy Choo collection for H&M have been trickling out since we first got a look at that over-the-knee leather boot, and now we've got a whole slew of them. There are tons of shoes, bags and jewelry in the collection, along with clothes and even some menswear. It's all pretty 80s, with studded belts, statement jewelry, and some seriously dramaculous shoes. The footwear is pretty vibrant, but aside from one electric blue tunic-style dress the pictured clothes are mostly black and gray. There are even a couple menswear pieces, including some pretty universally wearable blazers and jackets and a great pair of strappy black leather combat-style boots.
Jumpsuits are a pretty polarizing garment these days, but the belted one in this line looks like it might fall on the more flattering end of the jumpsuit spectrum. A good studded belt is a useful wardrobe staple, but are you down with the fuzzy vest or the car-wash skirt? Dig through the photos and let us know what will be on your shopping list when this limited edition collection debuts on November 14.
Update: Per H&M's request, we've taken the images down and replaced them with a clipping from Harper's Bazaar UK. Stay patient, Choo fanatics—the official shots will be released in about a month.
