Isabel Toledo and Payless

Fabulous designer Isabel Toledo is doing a line of shoes and bags for Payless that is due out in September. This Collaboration is most likely one you don't want to miss.  You can read more about her collection here and WWD. I love the fact that she says she is a "walker" because as much as I love heels they are not always practical for running around the town. We all know that Isabel's shoes are going to be as she stated "playful and bold but also comfortable." I can't wait to see them all especially the "Cuban heel gillie" and the "Almost a Slingback"
I have loved Isabel Toledo since the 1980's and her husband Ruben has to be one of my most favorite illustrators. They are the epitome of the the perfect fashion couple, both so talented and amazing and perfect together they even almost look like each other.
Last summer while Camilla and I were in NY we had the opportunity to see the exhibit at FIT which was beautiful and inspiring. What can I say she is impeccable and I would die to own one of her pieces. So here I come Payless:)
