Great fashion minds think alike, as evidenced by today's debut of 9W♥InStyle, a second-time collaboration between shoe maven Nine West and InStyle magazine.
Available both online and in all U.S. stores, the capsule shoe collection plays to fall runway trends, with lace-up stilettos and open-toe sandals mixing it up in materials like leopard print and navy suede (we're also digging that zipper-adorned pointed toe flat). Bags and jewelry get into the mix too, including a convertible clutch and hardware-adorned black satchel. Prices range from $50 to $295.
Want a little expert sartorial guidance? Next Wednesday, August 13, InStyle accessories director Leah Karp will be on hand at the Nine West Copley Place outpost to offer first-hand styling tips. Champagne and sweet snacks enhance the shopping experience; anyone making a purchase over $75 also receives a mystery gift bag courtesy in InStyle. The event happens from 6pm to 8pm.
