Project Runway (I love that show!) winner Christian Siriano has designed his first shoe/handbag line for Payless! He has showcased these bold, fierce shoes for his Fall 09 Collection. His inspiration comes from the Egyptian culture,
“I was inspired by what I felt like the modern Egyptian woman would want to wear. It was my fantasy of Egyptian royalty from the sandstone temples and pyramids to the hieroglyphics. The architecture inspired the color palette of light sand, mocha, chocolate, and this amazing Persian green that really makes the shoes come alive! We created a beautiful print based off an etching found in antique jewelry and I think it is one of the strongest pairs in the collection.”
I have to admit that the ankle boots are quite amazing! What cha’ think?
I’m so fond of this particular pair with a gorgeous turquoise color and a bit of Asian, vintage flavor to it… well, should I say Egyptian flavor?
Just from the look of them, I can’t hardly wait to get my feet into these luscious boots. However, it all depends on how comfy they are because my experience with Payless shoes has been… painful. So, I’m really hoping that these ankle boots can offer the best of both worlds, the comfort & the style… I really hope so.
Christian Siriano for Payless will be available in both stores and online at the end of this month, price ranging from $25 – $50. Stay tuned for more updates on these goodies! Isn’t he so adorable?
