Nine West is set to cash in on a couple superstar designers in the coming months. The accessories chain has brought in CFDA award-winner and Alaia protégé Sophie Theallet on a capsule collection of shoes and accessories this spring. Though Theallet doesn’t produce accessories for her own collection, the charming and slightly country aesthetic she brings to Nine West might be an indicator of what we can expect from her burgeoning line in the future. For Theallet it’s about comfort and the beauty, for instance the flats are foldable. Score one for office dressing,but wait, there’s more.

Never one to tone down his vision, the designer has inspired men to drop their salaries on sneakers and loafers with no shortage of leopard and studs. Now the designer is partnering with upstart designer Marlon Gobel, collaborating on shoes for the line’s Fall 2011 collection.

The ecological conscious trend has been on the mind of fast fashion retailers for some time, with everyone from H&M to Uniqlo introducing their own take on “organic” threads for the masses. It hasn’t completely taken off but we can add Topshop to the list of environmentally aware retail behemoths, with its new partnership with sustainable fabric producer Bionic Yarn. Created by Tyson Toussant and Tim Coombs, Bionic Yarn produces fabrics out of plastic bottles, as you may remember from Pharrell Williams collaboration with Moncler , and with a little support from Williams the producer is now looking to cash in on some serious growth opportunities.
