miss b loves..........espadrilles


I have always loved espadrilles ever since I bought my first traditional pair from the local village store in Les Eglisottes, north of Bordeaux, during one of my earliest visits (aged 14) to my French friend's house - they were very similar to these .........


ropeysoles.com

Now of course they come in all fabrics and designs including platforms and wedges. I couldn't resist this pair last summer from Vincci in Dubai. I like the neutral canvas, navy and white striped interior and the cute bow at the back .......They have hardly been worn as, once back in the UK, the rainy summer didn't really  lend itself to wearing them........

This year there are florals, stripes, pastels, suede.........and I've spotted a few favourites.....................

Toms 


ASOS

Marks & Spencer Autograph

Jimmy Choo


Nine West

I came across this short video showing the classic espadrilles being made...........I really like the French soundtrack too!.......



Anyway.... just patiently waiting for some sunshine to wear mine................


PS There's a huge selection at nordtrom.com and NET-A-PORTER

  1. Love espadrilles...they are so comfortable and the heels are much easier to walk in than stilettos! :)

  6. I hope you get that sunshine soon and make more use of them this summer. I watched the movie too, lots of hand work for a simple and timeless piece. I like the plain or striped ones the most and I also want a wedge one. And thank you very much for all the lovely comments, I appreciate very much : ) Have a lovely weekend : )

  10. Bonjour Miss b. Great post. I love my espadrilles too and always invest in a pair when I visit Spain. Designers are coming up with some really pretty models, as you demonstrated here. We both had shoes on our minds when we posted this week, it seems ;-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)
