I’m not even sure where to start with this nonsense.

For some outlandish reason luxury brand Jimmy Choo & UGG Australia are to create a range of women's sheepskin footwear.

While Australian’s should be backing this collaboration in theory, anyone with any fashion sense is scratching their head.

Media information labels UGG ‘iconic bootmakers’ & jubilantly touts the new collection will be available in October & based on the UGG Australia construction with design details of the Jimmy Choo brand.

Über Chic Choo wearers will undoubtedly be mortified.

Tamara Mellon, Jimmy Choo's president, said: "Other than Jimmy Choo, UGG Australia is the only other footwear I have in my wardrobe. We are delighted to have created a special capsule that captures the best of both brands - the legendary comfort of UGG with the spirit of Jimmy Choo."

Connie X. Rishwain, president of UGG Australia, added: "We are thrilled to be able to offer the Jimmy Choo & UGG customers a unique collection of boots that we believe our customers will covet." Of course they will! This may be fabulous news for Kate Moss & Pamela Anderson but outside of that, caravan parks around the world have a new sovereign.

The collection - which will be available in five styles and multiple colour options - will be sold on each brand's websites, a selection of department stores and Jimmy Choo shops.

Please spare us in Australia & don’t ship them to Sydney!
