Lanai Christian Siriano for Payless

Payless debuts summer collection

Recently Payless has debuted its summer collection, which includes its popular designer collections – exclusive labels featuring original designs by New York fashion icons Christian Siriano, Lela Rose, and newcomer Silvia Tcherassi.

The sandals and heels in the Christian Siriano for Payless summer line are featured in a palette of classic neutrals such as cognac, chocolate brown and jet black, as well as a unique turquoise and brown pattern – a fabric inspired by one of Siriano’s spring ’11 runway gowns and worn by E! News host Guiliana Rancic on the 2011 Oscars’ Red Carpet.  Faux-croco, canvas and accents of hammered metal embellishments round out the line. The Lanai Peep Toe Pump (available only in brown) is shown above and costs $59.99.

The Lela Rose for Payless summer collection represents the designer’s ultra-feminine aesthetic with flats, wedges and peep-toe pumps rendered in rich striped fabrics, mossy green and natural tan colorations and accents of cognac piping.  The Isidro Ankle Strap Wedge is pictured above and retails for $64.99.

Meanwhile bold colors and materials like mesh, satin, elastic & glitter accent the variety of silhouettes found in the first Silvia Tcherassi for Payless collection, which includes a range of styles including platform strappy heels and ballet flats to espadrille thongs. Above is the funky and bright Genova Elastic Strap Sandal, available for $69.99.
