US: Payless and Patricia Field launch capsule collection
Sex & The City stylist Patricia Field has launched a new, exclusive capsule collection through footwear retail giant Payless ShoeSource.
The collection, the second one that Field has designed for the retailer, is available now in the US, priced at US$25-35 per item.
Field, Oscar-nominated for her work on the Meryl Streep film The Devil wears Prada, has created a broader range this time, entitled The Patricial Field for Payless Summer Collection.
Four shoe styles are featured, plus a clutch, with a strong focus on coloured metallics.
The shoes include the Princess ballet flat, the Empress Roman-inspired strappy flat sandal, the Tsarina mix-metallic heeled slide, and the Heiress round-toe pump. All feature sparkling details.
"For my second collection for Payless, I was inspired to continue the strong metallic theme, layering on bright colours including electric blue, sleek silver and sunny gold with sparkle and high-shine detailing," said Field.
Payless CEO and president Matthew Rubel said guest designers like Field were "a powerful element" in the retailer's avowed mission to "democratise fashion in footwear and accessories".
Last week it was also revealed the designer is to put her name to a one-off fashion range for UK clothing chain Marks & Spencer. The collection will be available in ten M&S stores from mid-October.
