Payless Scores Alice + Olivia

Who: Stacey Bendet, the designer behind alice + olivia, will be designing a collection of shoes for Payless.  Prices of the shoes will be in the $20/$30 range.

What the fashion heads say: from Pierce Mattie: Though the designer reportedly hasn’t even started sketching yet, she predicts that the designs will include brightly colored ballet slippers, platform sandals and flip flops to accent her Spring 2009 RTW collection. We’ll finally get a peek at the collection at alice + olivia Spring 2008 RTW Show during NY Fashion Week… as another first, they’ll sit on shelves in designer boutiques. That’s right, they’ll actually be sold in alice + olivia stores.

What I say:
You go Payless. Just make sure you sell them in a size 11.
