Sophie Theallet Collaborates With Nine West (She Even Designed Her Own Stripes)
This is the most fun time of year, fashion-wise -- there's collaboration news left and right, Fashion Week is around the corner, and everything winter is on sale. Nine West has announced its spring collaboration with CFDA winner Sophie Theallet on three items to hit stores May 1: a raffia wedge, double platform sandal, ballet flats and a straw bag (see above for two sneak peek photos via Fashionologie). I love their fun, beachy feel--and the fact that Theallet designed the stripe herself. The kicker? Nothing will be more than $109. Giles Deacon's fall Nine West collection has not been unveiled yet...we can't wait to see. Have you heard about Trina Turk's 2 upcoming collaborations yet? We've got the first photos.

Gap’s Collaboration With CFDA Winners Monique Péan And Sophie Theallet
We always look forward to the Gap CFDA collaborations--a genius team-up that brings CFDA winners' aesthetic to the mass market--and this year's collections did not disappoint. We have a sneak peek and the inside scoop from eco-friendly jewelry designer Monique Péan (above left), and French designer Sophie Theallet (above right) whose gorgeous pieces for the brand that are unfortunately sold exclusively at Gap's Fifth Avenue concept store: Theallet's fans include Michelle Obama and Jessica Alba for good reason--her signature dresses are bright and move with a woman's body. "I wanted to make dresses for all kinds of women, and I wanted to make them colorful and very comfortable," saysTheallet, who ensured that the quality remained for her Gap collection. Her line is a little pricey for Gap, ranging from $148 to $248, but the dresses from her real line cost in the thousands and we felt the fabric on the dresses above--they are worth the splurge. Monique Péan's sustainable jewelry pieces are so popular, and it's easy to see why. The former Goldman Sachs employee works with local artisans to create eco-friendly pieces that also give back. Every piece you buy from Péan, gives to charity, providing clean drinking water for one person over the course of 20 years. Her pieces for Gap run from $38 to $198, while her pieces at Barneys retail up to $10,000.
