I just love this. It’s so playful and fun, and it’s also so unexpected at a haute emporium like Bergdorf. I always thought the most playful thing I’d ever see there was a boring espadrille or a skull McQueen zipper shoe or an extravagant Alaia. Those are all wonderful things, but this could be on 5F (the youthful floor) or at the regular shoe salon.
Net-A-Porter says: “Manolo Barceló launched his footwear label (named after his daughter) in 1960, specializing in espadrille styles with a uniquely Spanish twist. Now under the creative reign of son Manuel, the label’s unique use of traditional materials and craftsmanship has earned it a loyal following. We love the hot-hued woven wedges and intricately knotted flat sandals.”
Sounds like a great label for vacation shoes. With wrap-around ankle straps with tie closures, cork and braided jute, a stacked wedge heel and a platform, this Spanish-made shoe says “Go to the Canary Islands!” all the way.
