Payless is going international with it’s next collaboration after a series of successful collaborations with American designers like Christian Siriano, Lela Rose, Isabel Toledo and Abaete. They’ve chosen Columbian fashion designer Silvia Tcherassi to create a line of handbags and footwear over the next 2 years that will begin hitting Payless stores in May 2011.
The collection will be priced affordably from between $40-70. The designer tells WWD that “…the spring-summer season this includes many important silhouettes like wedges, flats, strappy heels and thong sandals with key trend details like bright colorblocking, unique mesh uppers and satin ribbon details and ties.”
Tcherassi’s collection also marks an important moment for Payless stores across Latin America as this will be the first designer collaboration to be available outside the USA.
The first look that we have of the shoe is a sexy strappy number with a killer heel and distinctive platform in 2 color combinations. This particular pair will set you back about $70. I personally am a fan of both colorways and can’t wait to see them more of the collection. What do you think?
