Christian Siriano for Payless Spring 2011 Collection Unveiled at New York Fashion Week

0 Comments 10 September 2010

Payless ShoeSource unveiled the latest Christian Siriano for Payless line at the designer’s Spring ’11 runway show at New York Fashion Week yesterday. The collection is designed to accompany Siriano’s ready-to-wear (RTW) apparel, inspired by African, Indian and Chinese influences mixed with measures of elegant opulence.   The RTW line includes a signature Asian fabric print based on digital photographs showing different vantage points of Chinese and Buddhist temples combined with varying perspectives of Indian beading.

The shoes utilize the fabric as well and uniquely meld the cultural combination into four key styles hitting the runway today, each with style names inspired by international cities in each region: Shanghi with its heavy Chinese influence; Mumbai inspired by Buddhist temple architecture; Nairobi heavily influenced by the neckpieces worn by the women of the Padaung tribe of Southeast Asia; and Zanzi, a bootie that features strong African influences.
