To finish off my coverage of the Nine West Spring collections, for Spring of 2010, Nine West will continue with their successful Vintage America Collection. Inspired by the love for well worn, crafted footwear that stands the test of time, this collection stands strong evoking feelings of the southwest and has a more earthy, indigenous soul. There are sandals featuring lightly threaded beadwork, and/or earthy stone work. One sandal that particularly stood out to me has a series of ankle cuffs that resembled the kind of friendship bracelets you and your friends might make at summer camp, or buy at a roadside artisan stand near a Native American reservation.
The Vintage Amercia collection will also be expanding into the realm of jewelry come this spring. Much like the shoe collection you can expect to find touches of porcelain, turquoise, and suedes incorporated into the collection, as well as tri-color metals used to create feathers and leaves.
Like the rest of the Nine West Collections, these items will be hitting stores starting in March, and may be purchased online.
