In the world of designer collaborations, I must say, Sophie Theallet for Nine West is one of the best I have seen. The design and patterns are faithful to Sophie and the styling is 100% the Nine West customer (fashion savvy yet price conscious). I am totally obsessed with this plaid flat and raffia woven handbag:
Oh yes. I can already see my camel Chloe wide leg trousers:
and Anne Fontaine white shirt:
coming together with these fabulous accessory additions for Spring! I am now figuratively (and literally) itching to get out of winter woolens and boots.
Next up in Nine West’s shoelaborations designer series is British designer Giles Deacon (he cut his teeth at Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Bottega Veneta), currently trying to restore the caché to the Ungaro brand after Ms. Lohan pissed all over it with her trashiness.
Thank you Nine West for getting the collaboration equation right!
