Sadly, Target didn't ask Proenza Schouler to launch another diffusion line, but there's another high-low collaboration that's going in for seconds: Today Lela Rose revealed that Payless renewed her shoe contract, meaning another round of Lela's heels and flats will be on sale at the store next Fall - and they'll also appear on Lela's upcoming runway. The move is great news for anyone who likes cheap shoes - we're especially into her gold embossed flats, which are great for clomping in the rain - but it also reminds us of all the other designers who should get a second turn with their secondary lines. Besides Proenza Schouler, we'd kill for Stella McCartney to launch another H&M range, and if Luella Bartley could come back to Target, we would absolutely freak. Of course, once Gareth Pugh ties the knot with TopShop, we'll have something new to get us in a queue...
