There was a time when we wouldn't be caught dead in a Payless store, but times are swiftly changing. In their third designer collaboration, Payless ShoeSource says it will introduce a line of shoes designed by alice + olivia's Stacey Bendet.
Alice + Olivia, the designer label responsible for this love-it-or-hate-it sequined minidress, is teaming up with Payless.
Yup, they're the main perps behind those sequin mini-dresses that are all the rage these days—but we're talking cheap-n-chic shoes here, so we say bring it!!
Previously, Payless had signed up Abaete designer Laura Poretzky, Lela Rose and Patricia Field as guest designers.
This is Bendet's first-ever footwear collection, and we are super excited to check it out and see how her clothing design sensibilities transfer to shoes. The line will launch next spring and will be sold in alice + olivia boutiques as well as at Payless.
Here's the designer bio for Alice + Olivia from Shopbop.com:
Launched in 2002, Alice + Olivia was born of designer Stacey Bendet's personal quest to create the perfect pair of flattering and form-fitting pants. Her signature style was met with instant success, and "Stacey Pants" quickly became the daily staple and denim alternative for today's retro sophisticate. The brand has continued to expand its horizons launching a cashmere collection in 2003 and a full contemporary collection in 2005, turning Alice + Olivia into the go-to brand for vintage style.
