Sophia Webster collaborates with J. Crew
Sophia Webster has been darling of London Fashion Week these past few seasons, so in anticipation this week's event, we're hugely excited to hear about a new collaboration she's just announced with major global fashion brand, J. Crew. We're sure that the results of this meeting of minds will be extraordinary, but so far, we've just seen a few sketches:
The pieces look to be everything you'd expect from a hybrid of Sophia Webster's exuberance and J. Crew's pared-down simplicity. It's not an obvious collaboration but it works - making Webster's flights of fancy even more wearable and versatile. I particularly love the delicate heart-print pattern on this high-backed sandal, which bears Webster's signature monochrome stripe in muted form.
Sophia Webster X J. Crew debuts today at New York Fashion Week, and will go on sale at selected J. Crew retailers early in 2014. Speaking to WWD, the designer said of the shoes: "The collection is really fun and feminine, very me," she told WWD. "The brand has a real sense of fun and color that I love, and I think that my designs complement their clothes well."
We can't wait to see the real thing hit the shelves!
