>> Karen Elson's particular breed of Victorian-rocker irreverence meets accessories for a limited-edition collaboration with Nine West Vintage America, now available online. Launched last night with an exclusive fete — where Elson serenaded the crowd in a country-tinged acoustic set — the collection features a jazzed-up assortment of granny boots, tapestry frame bags, and peep-toe platform wedges. “My dream of designing a collection that’s a true reflection of me has now come to life through this collaboration,” Elson explained. Infused with a bit of Dust Bowl-era grittiness, leathers are well-worn but glitterized, jewelry features oxidized metal, and bags have a distinctly antique feel. The collection is priced at $32 for jewelry to $269 for shoes. Click through to see all the pieces from the collection — plus the campaign images.
