To be honest, we have to admit that we have grown weary of fashion “collaborations”, but still can’t seem to look away when they pop up on our radar. To introduce their new Shoelaborations project, Nine West has tapped Sophie Theallet to produce the first collection. Theallet, a French-born designer, used this small collection to tell her story of coming from Paris to New York City in order to realize her dreams as a designer. The line includes jewelry and bags as well as shoes and will be available in May. Next up for the Shoelaborations? British designer Gilles Deacon… Go to www.ninewest.com for more information.
