It’s a British invasion! For their new Vintage America Collection, accessories brand Nine West has tapped Brit-born soul singer Joss Stone to bring her bohemian-chic sensibility to the limited-edition footwear line set to launch in August exclusively at Nine West stores worldwide and at ninewest.com. While working closely with Nine West Creative Director Fred Allard, Joss kept her inspiration close to home–finding it in her own body art. “Each of my tattoos holds a very special meaning for me,” says Stone. “I love that the Nine West Vintage America Collection Fall 2010 will incorporate some of my unique tattoo designs to give the line an even more personal connection.” Not only will Joss Stone’s styles be just as affordable as the rest of Nine West’s footwear, with prices ranging from $70-$120, but a portion of all proceeds from the collection will be donated to Soles4Souls, a non-profit charity organization that facilitates the donation of shoes to aid those in need worldwide. You can get a jump-start on nabbing Joss’s collection before it launches in August by pre-ordering your favorite styles starting in late July at ninewest.com/vintageamerica.
