Jimmy Choo Crack Up?

Manolo says, this inside the baseball story from the Jossip, it is the old news to the Manolo, but you may find it interesting if you like to read about the travails of the shoe industry.

Four-inch heels are kickin’ (if not flyin’ across the boardroom) over at Jimmy Choo. The shoe company famous for its stifled in-fighting is making good on its rep.

At the center of the dolled-up drama is Choo’s polished head designer, Sandra Choi (niece of the original Jimmy Choo, who ducked out of the company in 1996). Except, well, you might not know of Sandra’s efforts at all, given corporate chief Tamara Mellon claims that it is she who’s the the chief designer — and entirely responsible for the collections Choo spits out.

Sure, Tamara.

And the story it gets worse from here.

This sort of the thing it depresses the Manolo. He just loves the shoes of the Choo, not the shoe industry bickering.

Manolo asks, why is so much of the wine writing so insufferable?

The Manolo he is on the record as being opposed to the ostentatious connoisseurship for the sake of the connoisseurship, and yet much of the writing of the oenophiliacs it appears to the Manolo to be just this.

Manolo says, the super fantastic funny girls at the Snarkywood they have given us the gift of 18 Degrees of Madonna!
