It seems top designers may be a little tired of all the smaller brands getting all the money offering the looks for less. While some are battling it out in court like Alexander McQueen vs. Steve Madden

Others are simply giving in and joining forces. For example, Stella McCartney has collaborated with Gap Kids and Baby Gap for an exclusive yet affordable line of stylish baby clothes.

Most ironic, Stella McCartney for Gap Kids greatly resembles Balmain as shown below:

We also have Jimmy Choo for H&M, a line that looks very promising, and yet again very affordable.
Jimmy Choo for H&M will make their debut in stores nationwide Nov. 14, 2009 (just in time for the holidays).
