Over the past few years, designers have been collaborating a lot with stores such as H&M, Target and Payless making the brands more accessible to consumers who otherwise may not be able to afford the merchandise. The collections are usually a big hit and fly off the shelves and sell out online (when available) within hours. I am usually not one to go crazy over these collections, but when I caught a glimpse of the Fall 2010 Christian Siriano for Payless Collection, it immediately caught my eye. The shoes are a bit meh but the bags are simply beautiful, especially the Mena Clutch. I had to go check it out in person… and I fell in love.
The Mena Envelope Clutch is a faux-patent snakeskin clutch bag, the perfect size to carry all of your essentials for a night on the town. It is gorgeous and very well made. It has a very expensive look to it for $39.99. If I saw someone walking down the street with it in hand, no way would I think Payless. I am actually going to rock this clutch for my birthday party as it matches my dress perfectly. I am so glad that I decided to check it out.
The SA saw how excited I was and showed me another clutch from a past Christian Siriano Collection that was clearanced at $10 so I snatched that one up too…
I am totally impressed with the Christian Siriano for Payless Collection and I look forward to seeing more from him in the future.
Have you picked up anything from the Christian Siriano for Payless Collections or any of the other designer collections such as Lela Rose?
