The collection will be based on the construction of Ugg’s sheepskin boots “with design details that embody the spirit of the Jimmy Choo brand,” the two companies said in a statement.
Prices for the line will range from $595 through to $795, and the collection will be carried at select Jimmy Choo and Ugg Australia stores and the two labels’ online stores, as well as at certain department and specialty stores that carry Jimmy Choo.
Tamara Mellon, president and founder of Jimmy Choo, said that alongside her own label, “Ugg Australia is the only other footwear I have in my wardrobe.”
