Bass Loves Rachel Antonoff Lady, $109, at Bloomingdale's, 1000 Third Ave at 59th St (212-705-2000)

Bass Loves Rachel Antonoff
After Rachel Antonoff dressed her models in Bass's flats for her Fashion Week presentations last year, the century-old footwear brand approached the New Jersey--bred designer about creating a capsule collection. The resulting collaboration of 13 styles seamlessly blends Antonoff's romantic, vintage-inspired whimsy with the boyish appeal of Bass's timeless kicks. Standouts include high-top boat shoes ($99), floral oxfords ($109), high-heeled saddle shoes ($109) and perforated oxfords topped with contrasting bows ($129). $99--$149. bassshoes.com.

Melissa Joy Manning for Doo.Ri jewelry
Fashion friends Doo-Ri Chung—a designer known for bringing architectural details to her eponymous clothing brand—and Melissa Joy Manning—a jeweler famed for her organic, nature-inspired designs—have teamed up to create a sustainable jewelry line inspired by an unlikely muse: spider webs. All of the handcrafted rings, cuffs and necklaces are an abstract interpretation of this concept, resulting in delicate yet complicated structures cast from recycled sterling silver and incorporating chain draping and rough stones like pyrite and quartz. $200--$1,115. melissajoymanning.com.

Milly handbags
We adore the vibrant, boldly printed pieces FIT grad Michelle Smith creates for Milly, her locally produced women's clothing line that imbues classic, feminine silhouettes with a modern sensibility. To celebrate the label's tenth anniversary, the Upper East Sider has extended that same aesthetic to ladylike purses, most of which are made of full-grain leather and adorned with interesting hardware details. We're particularly charmed by her perforated patent-leather shoulder bags with turn-lock clasps ($250) and adorable rope-tweed totes with button details ($350). $250--$525. millyny.com.

Nike Sportswear x Steven Alan shoes
Native New Yorker Steven Alan has been a fixture on the city's retail scene for the past two decades, during which time he's garnered a cult following for his signature wardrobe staples with a modern twist. So it's no surprise that footwear behemoth Nike approached him to revamp four of its classic styles—and even less of a shock that the capsule collection sold out just two weeks after its initial January 20 debut. Before you reach for a Valium, rest assured that another shipment of the suede-and-canvas kicks just hit shelves, so you can still scoop up the Air Zoom Lava Dome ($155), whose swoosh has received a pop of color, and the Air Zoom Magma AC ($145), which received a unique side-ankle zip. $115--$155. Steven Alan Annex, 103 Franklin St between Church St and West Broadway (212-343-0692, stevenalan.com).

Rebecca Minkoff shoes
It's hard to believe it's been a decade since Rebecca Minkoff first made a name for herself with her popular "I love New York" tee. Since then, the San Diego transplant's burgeoning handbag business has grown to include belts, bracelets and women's clothing. With the introduction of her fashion-forward footwear, which officially launched March 1, Minkoff returns to what she excels at: creating on-trend accessories. The shoes pay homage to the edgy glamour of the '70s—particularly the soulfulness of Janis Joplin and the seduction of Bianca Jagger—by juxtaposing soft leathers with studded pebble detailing. Styles we're coveting include wooden-heeled, open-toe wedges ($375) and slinky sandals with ballerina-inspired Lycra straps ($315). $135--$375. rebeccaminkoff.com.

Sophie Theallet for Nine West
The French-born designer partnered with Nine West to launch the mega footwear brand's debut "Shoelaborations" line—collections inspired by global perspectives that will feature up-and-coming designers, artists and musicians. Theallet has drawn upon her own personal voyage from Paris to NYC to create richly textured summer essentials, including a pair of ballet flats ($79), double-platform sandals ($99), raffia espadrilles ($99), two satchels ($69--$98), and matching charm necklaces ($44) and bracelets ($36). Available May 2 at Nine West, locations throughout the city; visit ninewest.com/sophietheallet.

Tim Hamilton x Bergdorf Goodman
After collaborations with Topman, Lacoste footwear and Uniqlo, designer Tim Hamilton is returning to his roots by teaming up with Bergdorf Goodman once more (the store was one of the first to carry his label when it launched in 2007). In just four years, Hamilton has nabbed the CFDA Swarovski Award for Menswear Designer of the Year in 2009 and put his eponymous collection—plus his sportier diffusion line, Tim Hamilton Redux—on the fashion map. Launched on March 15, this exclusive capsule collection focuses on wardrobe fundamentals like crew-neck thermal tees ($175), slim-fitting khaki-twill chinos ($275) and cotton polos adorned with crests ($235). Hamilton fans will appreciate that the BG offerings share the same military color palette and casual-yet-refined shapes as the designer's namesake line, but come at a lower price point. $175--$275. Bergdorf Goodman, 754 Fifth Ave at 58th St (800-558-1855, bergdorfgoodman.com)
