A veteran of Jean Paul Gaultier and Azzedine Alaia, French-born Sophie Theallet is known for creating luxury clothing whose universal appeal lies in its unique point of view. Her signature is a panaché of femininity and ease, sensuality and craftsmanship that is instantly recognizable.
For The Limited, Sophie designed a collection that features the vibrant color palate and feminine confidence Sophie’s designs are famous for. The debut collection includes a single look offered in four color ways that can be mixed and matched.
Commenting on her collaboration with The Limited, Sophie Theallet said, “I am very excited… I design clothes to make a woman feel beautiful, and my aesthetic is luxurious and sensual with an air of nonchalance. It is a wonderful challenge to create modern clothes with these attributes at an accessible price point. Partnering with The Limited is the perfect opportunity to reach a broader market.”
The collaboration between The Limited and Sophie Theallet will be available at The Limited stores nationwide and online beginning in mid-November 2012 as part of the fashion retailer’s holiday offering and extend into spring 2013.
The collaboration will debut a dress in four color ways: Ivory, Magenta, Black, and Vermillion.
