Todays New York Times brings news of yet another designer-mass retailer collaboration: Nine West is teaming up with Vivienne Westwood, Thakoon Panichgul and Sophia Kokosalaki. Okay, they had me at hello. How Nine West--a company that, frankly, I think makes really crappy shoes--scored these mega-talented designers is beyond me. The designs, which cost $180-$500, bow at Nine West stores and Macy's September 1st, effectively making them the most expensive shoes carried at Macy's period. And based on this Sophia Kokosalaki shoe (pictured at right), I'm so there, with my 20% Federated employee discount. Word.
