Jane Aldridge via Sea of Shoes
ShoeMint, the member-based online e-commerce site, has delved into collaboration territory for the first time with Sea of Shoes blogger Jane Aldridge. Stylist Nicole Chavez, who's one of the co-designers in the company along with actress Rachel Bilson, told WWD of the collaboration, "It's a fun way to get a different perspective."
WWD notes that the collaboration will include a single pair of shoes, and will launch in September; Otherwise, there are no details available. But knowing Aldridge, they will be heels, and knowing ShoeMint, they'll retail for under $100. Aldridge's last major shoe collaboration was with Urban Outfitters over three years ago and she and her mom also designed a coat for Gryphon.
