Last month it was revealed that Sophie Theallet and Giles Deacon would design a shoe collection for Nine West and last night saw Theallet unveil her collection - set to hit stores in May - to press in New York's meatpacking district.
The theme of the collection is 'Sophie From Paris Takes a Trip to NYC' and features heeled espadrils in different shades of pink stripes with bows which is exactly what "a French girl would wear on the Riviera with rolled up blue jeans and a little T-shirt," the designer explained.
Aside from the collection with Nine West, Theallet is also working with Manolo Blahnik but both projects are merely preparation for the launch of a line of shoes under her namesake line. "I did these collaborations to learn ... I got to work with Fred Allard [Nine West's creative director], and he helped make all my dreams come true with the shoes," she told The Cut.
