We recently attended the Payless Spring 2009 preview, and are excited to announce the continuation of fabulous designer styles by the likes of Abaete, Lela Rose, and Alice + Olivia. In addition to the designer collaboration collections that we love, two pleasant new surprises are on the way: a hand-dyed collection by Lela Rose in silhouettes that you will actually want to wear to a wedding or formal occasion and the incredibly innovative (not to mention adorable and afordable) green footwear collection.
We were most impressed with the incredible consideration put into the eco-line, dubbed Zoe & Zac, making everything from the upper materials, soles, rubber, detailing and more in an eco-conscious way. Payless partnered with Summer Rayne Oaks, a model-activist, spokesperson, and consultant in sustainable development to make sure the collection was ground-breaking in the realm of green and stylish. We can’t wait to get at least a few pairs once they hit stores in April of 2009!
