Trend: Espadrilles

Photo Lauren Bacall, Photo Grace Kelly
Espadrilles are a big trend this summer. Before i share my picks with you, i wanted to tell you something more about espadrilles.
Espadrilles are original from the Pyrenees and the word 'espadrille' is French. They have a canvas or cotton upper and a rope or rubber sole. These shoes can be flat or high heeled. In the 1940's the espadrilles became fashionable in the USA, because Lauren Bacall wore them in a movie called 'Key Largo' (see photo above, left). Grace Kelly wore them a lot too (see photo above, right).
Recently our favorite celebrities like Jessica Alba, Miranda Kerr and Kate Middleton were spotted wearing these shoes.

Here are my picks that are available now.

  3. I have to say at first (last year) when I saw people wearing espadrilles I said I'd never wear them. I only liked high-heeled espadrilles. But this year I am in love with the flat ones and really want a pair! Loved your blog and will come back for sure! I find it very inspirational...
