Espadrilles! Perfect to wear with the new trouser length, their artisanal chic shouts style-without-even-trying.


(Dolce and Gabbana)

In the Season of ugly shoes, the espadrille walks in the shadow of the Birk, never quite leading the way…but always there.



But from it’s humble position on sea-side kiosks and dusty holiday shops, it’s now been elevated to celestial heights and given the full make-over.


(Stella McCartney)

I can’t help but think – if what’s special about them is they’re colours and added bits….surely they make the ideal canvas for a DIY project?


(Tory Burch)

Cheap as chips to buy, easy to accessorise – no great financial risk if it all goes tits up – the only real limit is your daring and imagination with the end result equalling a stunning, original piece of your summer wardrobe…


(Missioni Mare)

Makes me think – shall we have a DIY Espadrille Competition????

I can hear their siren call.

And my gut says they’re going to be the BIG thing this summer.  Time to bite the bullet….
