Earlier this week, we’ve got a chance to preview the Spring 2010 collection which consisted of a lot of ethnic styles featuring beads, embroidery, stitching and floral prints. Bright colors and color blocking was big in this range as well. The collection will be available at Nine West stores and online, Macy’s and other department stores in Spring.
Nine West Vintage America is also running a contest on their site, if you’re a talented singer/songwriter with the fashion sensibility of a star performer then it’s time to make yourself heard.

Back in December, Nine West announced their new collection for fall 2009 called Nine West Vintage America which is slated to launch for back to school. The collection of footwear, denim, handbags and accessories offers a “more rugged and casual aesthetic” look. The collection features a “vintage and worn-in feel” consisting of lots of suede, hardware details, straps, studs, lace-ups, soft materials, plaid, faux fur and shearling. I kinda need the over-the-knee leather boot, so cute!
Prices are between $59 and $169, and handbags will average about $145. Denim will sell for less than $70, and belts will cap at about $58. The collection will be available at Nine West stores and online, Macy’s and other department stores.
