VIVA LA COLLABORATION!
Yet another famed American brand has teamed up with one of the hottest designers around to create a collaborative collection that is both affordable and on the cutting-edge of fashion.
Nine West has tapped Sophie Theallet to create a footwear and handbag line for this Spring/Summer featuring some deliciously feminine sandals and casual bags. “For the collection I designed my own stripe print, which you will see interpreted on a ballet flat, a raffia wedge and a double platform sandal. I also designed little straw bags with charms representing icons of France.” Theallet recently told Footwear News on her Nine West collaboration. Sophie Theallet for Nine West will be priced from $79 to $109 and will arrive in stores on May 1st.
Additional stirrings talk of Nine West’s Fall/Winter collaborative line with British designer Giles Deacon, which leads others to believe that more Nine West collaborations to come.
Nine West’s creative director, Fred Allard said women’s wear designers such as Sophie Theallet and Giles Deacon “bring a new aesthetic to our stores.” He called Theallet’s designs “fresh and feminine” and Deacon’s style “futuristic, modern and exciting.”
