Sophie Theallet is one of the most beloved designers of the moment with French origins as well as now a Manhattan-based career, which allows her to collaborate with the most prominent fashion brands of the moment as Nine West. Shoelaborations is the actual name of the program launched by the style company to attract more and more promising designers to use their talent and turn the fabulous accessories into real works of art. The Sophie Theallet for Nine West Accessories were envisioned in the theme of “Sophie from Paris Takes a Trip to NYC”. The stylish parade of shoes, bags and jewelry includes some of the key items Theallet considers as must haves in order to adopt an up-to-the-minute and fashion trend-appropriate apparel. The capsule includes platform sandals as well as ballet flats, satchels and raffia bags together with a charm bracelet and a necklace decorated with trademark French cultural elements as the Eiffel Tower.
The collection bears accents from the French and also the American culture as she claimed to StylList: “It’s totally mixed with a New York feeling – it’s of two worlds”. “It was fast, but that’s what fashion is about.” This is how Sophie Theallet talks about the less than six months period the creation of the accessory collection required. Indeed, you’ll find stripes in their utmost beauty included into the capsule both when it comes to shoes as well as handbags.
She claims to Fashionista that: “If you’re French, stripes are very familiar. But I chose to make it in grosgrain–the chicest way!” Without doubt, the young succeeded in coming up with a unique cavalcade of style items that can be easily embedded into the most stylish casual, as well as semi-formal warm weather outfits. Femininity and high class is what these cute art works radiate with a tint of summerish allure.
The girly collection will be launched in May 2011 at the Nine West stores and at the Nine West Facebook Fan Shop. Those who are eager to take home some of the strappy shoes, raffia bags as well as the enchanting charm bracelets will have the chance to do it for a pocket-friendly price. Skimming through the collections of Sophie Theallet it becomes clear that her main aim is to preserve some of the main influence of French culture and embed them in the high street fashion business from New York, merging two of these different and versatile cultures. If you’re a fan of colorful outfits, make sure you pierce these stylish accessories into your clothing style and enjoy the vibrant vibe these radiate adding a pop of color to your look.
