Introducing Sophie Theallet
There's a good chance I just really like her because she's french. But considering she just scored one of the fashion industries most major awards (a CFDA, more on that later), and is doing a capsule collection for Nine West, I thought it'd be best if you two got acquainted. I think what I love most about Sophie Theallet is she's incredibly conscious of a woman's body. Instead of designing against it--or at odds with it--she embraces curves and the like and highlights and flatters what makes a woman a woman. She promises that her accessory line for Nine West will be full of the fun and feminine details that people already obsess over (think charms, embellished handbags, and the like). What better way to get to know some of the industry's biggest design talent than when they come right to you--or rather a mall near you.
