An espadrille is the ultimate shoe to instantly remind us of summer. Sunshine, the beach and hot weather is what we associate with them. Though women’s espadrilles are not a completely new trend, we still love to discover the latest style updates. This season there are tons of new shapes, new materials and extravagant creations to see.
mytheresa.com provides you with this year’s must-have espadrilles and designer pieces you will never take off again. The classic cotton or canvas upper is often replaced by leather, lace or suede. That makes them even easier to combine with various outfits. The jute rope sole of heeled espadrilles is perfect for longer walks and is easy on our feet. We are not alone with our love for ladies espadrilles. Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly wore them and Kate Middleton is a convinced fan. The cute and romantic appeal of leather espadrilles truly enchants us.
As the history of the espadrille dates back as far as the 14th century, we’re fairly sure they are a timeless investment. They originate from the Pyrenees, where they were crafted from grass and canvas. The all-natural materials make them an economic and healthy choice.
Women’s espadrilles: Comfy and effortlessly cool
It is definitely the air of effortless chic that makes us love this year’s designer espadrilles so much. Once, flat espadrilles were said to be very casual and simple. Today, mytheresa.com offers leather espadrilles and other exclusive designs that can be extremely chic too. Wedge espadrilles or lace espadrilles have been seen on the runway and recently became the new favourite of the fashion crowd.
mytheresa.com assembles the most beautiful of all designer espadrilles for you to find your favourite summer staple. Tory Burch espadrilles are the perfect shoes for hot days in the city. We love the ‘Clarisse’ platform espadrilles with their beautiful laser-cut design. The slightly higher heel lifts a few essential centimetres and you will still be able to walk comfortably. At the beach or poolside, choose white espadrilles that flawlessly fit with soft and flowing summer stylings. For a rather maritime look, decide for striped espadrilles in a blue hue. Wearing them immediately reminds you of the sea.
Your new best friend for days at the beach will be some Missoni espadrilles. The zig-zag style instantly identifies them as a fashion staple. With their various colours you can easily team them with a plain and simple outfit.
Espadrilles meet high fashion
Espadrilles found their way out of the beach and pool area and are now part of the high fashion collection. With beautiful prints, lovely embroidery and luxury details, they play an important role in trend-setting fashion. Designers have long adapted these shoes to their collections and obviously love to experiment with new styles and shapes.
Our favourite shoe and bag brand Roger Vivier did not hesitate to re-interpret the classic espadrille and turn it into a high fashion piece. The pink espadrilles not only stand out with their strong colour but also with their luxury appeal. The buckle detail makes them a sophisticated and grown-up choice. For an even more outgoing appearance, opt for the red patent espadrilles on mytheresa.com. The high quality calf leather and the luxurious finish make them a perfect match for exclusive monochrome outfits. Eye-catching pastel coloured espadrilles can be a trend-setting choice for casual and dressed up outfits alike. If this is too much for your taste, choose the white espadrilles that are made from soft leather and guarantee a comfy walk.
Wedge espadrilles take footwear to a higher level. They are the perfect way to wear casual heels and have one huge advantage: they are incredibly comfortable. Espadrilles with straps give you additional support and put slim ankles into the limelight. If you are looking for shoes to complete a feminine summer outfit, opt for some Valentino espadrilles. Pastel colours and delicate embroidery make them fresh and fancy. Go even more elegant with black wedge espadrilles that suit a long summer dress as well as shorts and skirts. Gold or silver espadrilles are an eye-catcher if you combine them with plain and modern outfits.
mytheresa.com selected a variety of espadrilles for women who love to combine effortless fashion with luxurious looks. Enjoy the comfort and style of this season’s latest espadrilles.
