Nine West collaborates with Kirna Zabete

Kirna Zabete shoesFootwear behemoth Nine West recently launched a six month collaboration with Sarah Easley and Beth Buccini, the two best friends and co-owners of the Soho boutique  Kirna Zabete.

The idea of the collection revolves around how you get dressed every month by mood, and for every one of the six months Sarah and Beth have designed a high heel, mid-heel, flat and flip flop. Although the two best friends have never designed shoes before, they have worked closely with Nine West to produce luxury shoes that can nonetheless retail for around the $150 mark.

For March, the theme is the Urban Warrior and the high heel is the jois paper bag sandal (above). This bondage-inspired high heel can be used to add a touch of tough to a girlie outfit, or could be part of an all-leather femme fatale getup. It features a lace-up leather heel with a gathered “paper bag” detail at the ankle. The heel is 4½” high, with a ½” platform and it retails for $169.

Also available for March is this leather wrapped stiletto, the 4″ Sophi Bondage Heel. “Now is the time to make that aggressive fashion statement for spring,” said Sarah when launching this heel.

Kirna Zabete Nine WestThe Kirna Zabete + Nine West collaboration began February with the fluffy fantasy offering above. The heel is designed to be fluffy and sexy, with the hope that it attracts somebody to keep the wearer warm. “New clothes are in the stores, but it is still winter so we designed shoes that lift your spirits,”says Beth.

The collaboration is available from ninewest.com, Kirna Zabete’s Soho boutique, kirnazabete,com, as well as select online partners. We’ll be featuring more heels from the collection at highheelsdaily.com in coming months.
