Christian Siriano for Payless
We’ll get to Christian’s new collection soon, darlings. But first, let’s take a look at his other new collection: his line of shoes for Payless:
“The Christian Siriano for Payless styles unveiled today take Christian’s sleek runway aesthetic in an edgy direction. Each of the five shoe styles — with creative names like Slither, Saunter, SheDevil, Sand Strap and Strut — feature Christian’s unique chunky conical heel designed to look like an inverted pyramid. Handbags — the Shanbag tote and Sassafras clutch — coordinate with the footwear silhouettes: two ankle booties and three hidden platform pumps, with accents of pyramid studs and draped chains. Rich materials such as shiny dark brown snakeskin and Egyptian hieroglyphic teal fabric also echo Christian’s Egyptian inspiration.”
“This is the first shoe collection I’ve designed and Payless has been fabulous,” said Christian Siriano. “It was really incredible to have no limitation in shapes, materials or details. This is the way I think when designing my ready-to-wear pieces — from a completely blank canvas. “
They’re alright. We like the blue pair and the shape of the heel on most of them. The spikes? No. The chains? *shrug*
And is it us or do the toe boxes on these shoes look awfully – painfully – small?
