Collaboration Love: Sophia Webster for J.Crew

We would be lying if we said we didn't get wildly enthusiastic every time a J.Crew presentation occurs. From the clothes to the styling to the hair and makeup (aren't you obsessed with the J.Crew orange-red lipstick?), we're guaranteed to fall in love with almost every look. This season, J.Crew added yet another lust-worthy component to their presentation: A collaboration with new shoe designer Sophia Webster.
A late apprentice to genius Nicholas Kirkwood, Webster is known for her playful designs, which often include stripes, polka dots, and multi-colors. Her designs for J.Crew are no less impressive. With 30 different styles on offer, the capsule collection includes floral prints, striped heels, tassels, and embroidery. "The collection is really fun and feminine, very me, but still a hybrid of the two brands," Webster said.
We can't wait to get our toes in a pair, and plan on wearing them from the office to a dinner party. After all, as head of J.Crew's women's design, Tom Mora told us, "Incorporate a bold, colorful shoe into your everyday wardrobe by pairing it with neutral, solid colors. Think navy, khaki, or white. You can also pull in one of the colors found in the shoe design to tie the look together. The clothes should compliment the shoes, not compete with them."
