Nine West has partnered with Macy's and Vogue to deliver three limited-edition collections in the US designed by Vivienne Westwood, Thakoon and Sophia Kokosalaki.

The designers were given full creative control over their individual collections, which each comprise eleven pieces, including shoes, handbags and ready-to-wear accessories.
 
"Many American celebrities wear Vivienne Westwood clothes, and while the name is well known in the States, few American women have had access to the clothes or accessories," Vivienne Westwood said.

"Teaming up with Nine West gives the opportunity to many more American women to discover what it feels like to wear Vivienne Westwood."

The ranges will be launched next month and are described by Nine West as exclusive lines at a more affordable cost.

Jones Apparel Group executive VP for marketing and creative services, Stacy Lastrina, said: "The Nine West customer is fashion-forward, enticed by the sense of discovery and constantly craving new stimulation. Our goal is always the same - to create innovative products that generate consumer excitement."
