The name Joss Stone may not have the same resonance as say; Britney, Christina, or even Stefani Germanotta, but the British R&B singer has been approached by American footwear brand Nine West to design a limited edition collection. Fred Allard, Nine West’s Creative Director, said “this collection will incorporate her mind, body and soul to create some wonderfully imaginative footwear.” – WWD. The styles she designs will be developed for Nine West Vintage America, a line the company launched in fall ’09. The concept behind the line is rugged individualism, with styles that are meant to be “soulful, sincere, and free spirited,” which perfectly describe the bohemian singer. Stone wishes to incorporate elements of her unique floral tattoos into her designs to give a personal feel to the collection. The union appears a bit incongruous, considering that Stone frequently forgoes footwear in favor of performing barefoot, but considering that proceeds of the $70-$120 collection will go to the Soles4Souls charity, we can’t really fault them for that.
