Espadrilles

Hey Guys,

Seems that the summer weather does not want to abandon us; so you are not seeing jackets, heavy knit… on the streets. The stores are full of jackets & knits waiting like crazy for the cold weather.

For that reason, I want to talk about espadrilles, huge success this summer; everybody bet for this type of shoes to wear and shine under the beautiful sunny. Espadrilles have been made in Pyrenean Catalonia (Spain) and Occitania region since the 14th century at least, and there are shops in the Basque Country (Spain) still in existence that have been making espadrilles for over a century. Espadrilles have grown in popularity, especially in the Catalan region and the Basque Country, where many men and women wear them during the spring and summer months. Espadrilles became really famous, it is like that because Chanel or YSL for example decided to go for this kind of shoes too.

Comfort, simplicity and accessibility are the recipe for success when it comes to this centures-old footwear. Styles range from comfy flats to towering wedges and rope-sole hybrids move this footwear classic forward with countless options, from sporty sneakers to sophisticated oxfords.

I have a friend called Isabel Rotger based in Berlin (Germany), that has decided to build a brand called Act. about the wonderful world of espadrilles. Check her website www.act-series.com.

Street Style

Hey Guys,
Fall is starting and I know you are missing a lot your days in the beach, “chiringuitos”, and so on. Back in the city, one of my favourite plans is to grab a nice and tasteful coffee and walking around the city checking how people play with the clothes and express themselves. Working and loving fashion so much, you can enjoy a lot and also remember that sometimes trends coming from bottom-to-top; for this reason, keep on eye in the streets.
