Today Footwear News reveals previews of both B Brian Atwood, Brian Atwood's diffusion line, as well as Jimmy Choo's new men's shoes.
B Brian Atwood will sell at a much lower price point than his eponymous line--for between $100 to $600. Sure, the high end of that range still sounds prohibitively expensive, but when you consider that his shoes, a cult favorite amongst celebs, usually go for between $600 and $800 and upwards, $200 or $100 for a pair of Atwoods seems reasonable in comparison. The collection will include between 35 and 54 styles and has been picked up by Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys Co-op, Fred Segal and Shopbop.com, according to Footwear News. And despite the lower cost, the shoes still look beautiful, come in fun bold shapes and colors that give the line a more youthful feel, and contain some of those bonus details--like rhinestones on the soles--to make the wearer feel extra special.
We also get a peek at Jimmy Choo's revived menswear collection (they haven't created men's shoes since 2002), which will launch in fall 2011 with 16 styles in prices ranging from $595 to $1,095, Footwear News is reporting. Men, would you shell out up to $1,095 for crocodile boots or animal print loafers?
