Jones Apparel Group Nabs Brian Atwood
Buzzy shoe designer and Rachel Zoe-favorite Brian Atwood recently resigned from his post as creative director at Bally, so it's no surprise that he's getting into something else. Jones Apparel Group has inked a deal with the designer to launch a contemporary footwear and accessories collection. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. In the past few years, Jones has attempted to revive its fuddy-duddy image through partnerships with the likes of Stuart Weitzman and Rachel Roy. The line, tentatively named B Brian Atwood, will feature shoes priced between $200 and $400, as well as boots around $600.
