We’re hooked to our sneakers and still very grateful the fashion peeps initiated this trend a few seasons ago. Who would ever think running shoes would become a high class accessory? That pivotal moment came with the launch of the Chanel baskets.
Spending our summers in the South of France means we’re very familiar with espadrilles. Each year we bought a new pair in a different color, because that’s all the choice we had. The canvas and rope slippers have become a true fashion hit this season, and now they are also available in array of prints.
Espadrilles. We know them quite well. Part of our yearly wardrobe staple once we arrived on holiday destination in the South of France. There wasn’t much choice in the design at the village shop at the time. Just one flat model, but in a wide range of colors.
This week I was in Italy on a presstrip for Villa Massa -there will be an extended report about that soon- and while we were there we’ve visited the lovely coastal village of Positano. Now I here you thinking ‘how is that related to fashion?’, but we’ve noticed quite some shoe craftsmen there, mostly producing leather sandals.
