One of your favorite shoe brands, Nine West, has just launched Shoelaborations, a new collaboration project that will bring the vision of international trendsetters, artists, and designers to you.
The first collection, from French designer Sophie Theallet, is already in stores for spring/summer 2011. The “Sophie Theallet for Nine West” collection tells the story of “Sophie from Paris Takes a Trip to NYC” and includes uniquely designed pieces that are Sophie’s take on summer essentials: a ballet flat, a double platform sandal, a raffia wedge, two satchels, as well as a charm necklace and bracelet.
The collection is said to be exturally rich, colorful and feminine. The pieces will express Sophie’s design aesthetic and French sensibility.
“Partnering with a well-established footwear and accessories business such as Nine West has given me the opportunity to live out my life-long dream of designing on a larger scale. I was able to take one of my favorite patterns and create a collection that captures both my design aesthetic and the spirit of the Nine West brand.” -Sophie Theallet
Avant Garde designer Giles Deacon’s collection is slated for fall 2011. The British designer will debut the “Giles Deacon for Nine West” collection and will be “cutting-edge in its incorporation of technology in a fashion-forward way.”
