Karen Elson’s got a lot of things going for her. She’s a unique beauty, a talented musician, was married to rock star Jack White of The White Stripes, and to top all of that off, has some insanely awesome vintage style. And now, she can add designer to her already impressive CV. Elson has introduced a very small line of shoes, purses, and jewelry as part of the aptly named ‘Vintage America’ division of Nine West.
The items are exactly what you would expect from a supermodel extraordinaire like Elson but with the Nine West buyer in mind (Read: This collection is not as goth-y Victorian as we might have hoped). Still, the things that she did have a hand in creating vastly outshine those that are already part of the Vintage America collection–particularly the Inthedirt boots and those knockout Theghost wedges in either deep blue or wine. This lady has some great designing potential, but does that really come as such a surprise?
