Sophia Webster, the British designer whose bright, playful footwear sits just on the right side of kitsch, has set her first major collaboration: a capsule collection for J. Crew that will debut at the brand’s presentation during New York Fashion Week on Tuesday, WWD has learned.
The collection includes Webster’s most popular silhouettes, which have been retooled to highlight the colors and patterns of J. Crew’s spring women’s collection. Bright taffeta fabrics; patent leather; star, floral and polka dot prints; neon shades and a palette of blues have been embellished with Webster’s trademark tassels, embroidered details and crystals.
