Yet more designer collaborations to report! Rachel Antonoff and Erin Fetherston are the most recent additions to the ever-growing, 50-Foot-Woman of a trend. Fetherston, who signed on to create an upscale capsule collection for the track suit mavens at Juicy Couture earlier this year, has been hard at work on a slew of velvet pieces just in time for holiday 2010. The collection, which Fashionologie debuted images of yesterday, includes a few numbers plucked from the boudoir: the Dolman Sleeve Gown ($378) looks ripe for nocturnal lounging. A festive boustier dress ($298) and a silk and velvet dress ($298) prove the most wearable features of the collection, alongside a jeweled button jacket ($228) and Roaring Twenties-inspired headpieces, handbags, and jewelry.The collection is currently up for grabs at Juicy Couture.
Meanwhile, Antonoff has been livening up Bass, another seasoned brand that could use a bit of refreshing. The NYC-based designer, whose namesake collection is continuously chock-full of fun, uber-feminine frocks, has put forth a mini footwear line that epitomizes whimsy. There are saddle shoes with a touch of floral flair and duck booties in denim. There’s also a classic saddle shoe transformed with a two-inch heel. And, as if the collection couldn’t get cuter (refer to the tiny albino kitten above), Antonoff tapped friend and drummer of The Like, Tennessee Thomas, to play the face of the collab.
