Jimmy Choo sold for about £500 million

I'm sure that you have all heard of the internationally famous shoe brand Jimmy Choo.  Well it has recently been sold to Labelux an Austrian luxury group for about £500 Million.

Personally I don't think that this will make much difference to the status and brand identity that Jimmy Choo has; What do you think?


  1. Tamara Mellon has earned A LOT from her initial £150,000 investment. Jealous? ME? ;) X

    P.S. Check out my giveaway!


  2. Jimmy Choo is already well established, I dont think the status of it will change at all.

  3. Waw I didn't even know that is was sold! Thanks for the info.

  4. Jimmy Choo has been losing design appeal ever since Jimmy Choo left. The design team ratio of stylish shoes to not is about 1:10 and handbags is even worse, like 1:20. Tamara Mellon was smart to sell it off because she knew the inevitable was coming when Jimmy Choo falls off the style radar.
