At once they were everywhere (again).... espadrilles! A very comfortable type of shoe, originally from the Pyrenees, perfect for summer! I fell completely in love with the "Rise & Shine" model by The Old House... this new brand is according to their agency "an extension of the lives of Bibi (Sculptress, Jewelry Designer), Gugi (Writer, Filmmaker) and James van der Velden (interior Architect, Designer)." No surprise here... I love Bibi van der Velden's jewelry!
All the other espadrilles are not for sale yet... you will be able to buy them next summer, since they're part of the Spring-Summer 2014 collections that were shown during Pitti Uomo. Something to look forward to! Whether you like a preppy look, animal prints, neon colours, ikat prints, cotton, linnen or suede... there's an espadrille for everyone.
