There is nothing I love more than a good designer collaboration that brings high fashion to all of us at prices we can afford. Well, even though it’s been out for a bit, I urge you to seriously RUN to your local Nine West store to get some gorgeous pieces of the Sophie Theallet for Nine West collection.
If you’re not familiar with Sophie Theallet, let me give you three quick reasons why you should love her unabashedly:
- French-born designer (South of France, to be exact) who now lives and makes magic here in the US. She studied and worked under Jean-Paul Gaultier and Azzedine Alaïa in Paris before coming stateside.
- The 2009 winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award, one of the highest honors that can be paid emerging design talent. She’s been setting the world on fire ever since.
- The woman is incredibly talented. Her aesthetic is a worldly bohemian glamour that is effortless perfection. Her use of color and draping makes every woman look like a goddess.
The accessories she’s designed for Nine West are drool worthy pieces of perfection that will be the workhorse staples of your summer wardrobe. Gorgeous, vibrantly-striped handbags and shoes. After previewing the collection, I now have three pairs of the shoes and I’m going back for a handbag.
So, as I said, it’s time to head to your local Nine West retailer or their online store and grab yourself a little Sophie Theallet magic. C’est ci bon!
