FIRST LOOK: Christian Siriano for Payless Shoes
Payless ShoeSource unveiled its designer label, Christian Siriano for Payless, with the designer at his fall ’10 runway show at New York Fashion Week today. The shoes are designed to complement his Ready-To-Wear (RTW) and Siriano’s overall collection is inspired by 1960s Parisian women and their daily practice of getting dressed. His shoes pull strong inspirations from antique furniture from the 18th and 19th century with its filigree and clawfoot detailing. A focal design from the runway collection is the Rocaille style — a platform pump featuring a signature artisan heel reminiscent of a clawfoot. The collection is expected in Payless stores in September.
