Footwear retailer Payless ShoeSource is extending its tie-up with designer Christian Siriano after adding a wider assortment, lower prices and a new Christian Siriano for Payless Gold Label to his autumn designs.

The expanded collection of shoes and handbags arrives in 2,400 Payless stores next week, with prices starting at $23 an item. The new label will be refreshed four times a year with new seasonal collections.

"Our customers love Christian's creative designs and given the popularity of his current Payless label - which stresses more dress looks from his New York Fashion Week runway show - we knew we had to bring forward more of Christian's style at great prices to more Payless stores and a broader customer base," said Payless president and CEO, LuAnn Via.

The collection includes six shoe styles - dress pumps, ballet flats, casual oxfords, ankles boots, and strappy dress sandals in faux suede, leather, and patent materials.  

The Christian Siriano for Payless Gold label is inspired by Siriano's fall 2011 New York Fashion Week runway show held last February, and includes six shoe styles and two coordinating handbags at prices starting from $40 an item.
