Lela Rose’s ready-to-wear (RTW) collection is inspired by Lima, Peru, and its strong mix of old-meets-new cultures and architectures at various stages of development in the city. Lima is a richly colored city with patina hues of yesteryear among very bold colors of today. The city has a strong heritage in textiles and patterns iconic to the city's landscape, culture and commerce.
The Lela Rose for Payless Spring '11 runway collection includes five key styles with old-meets-new inspirations and Peruvian textile inspirations. The shoe designs -- named after streets of Lima -- include: Loreto with its striated wedge heel inspired by the city's hillside landscape; Magdalena accented with a rich brown raffia-wrapped textile wedge sole; Olaya, a T-strap with a wedge sole wrapped in an iconic Peruvian navy-clay colored woven textile; Canevaro a T-strap dress heel; and Olivos, an all-satin cocktail shoe.
