Whether skimming hot pavement or accentuating a bare leg beneath your favourite denim shorts, a summer sandal is the perfect combination of minimalist elegance with a utilitarian function.
Woven designs will always be our first pick – try Carrie Forbes‘s naturally dyed raffia slides from Morocco, or slippers made for the island dust of Ibiza by Camilla Skovgaard’s new label, Of Origin .OO. For the art of distilling a timeless piece to its bare minimum, A.Emery champions textured leather silhouettes in matte charcoal, designed in Melbourne and made in India, and Maria Farrow mixes her love of Bondi Beach with the shores of Crete. For something new altogether, look no further than Emme Parson’s eponymous label, offering a patent Mary Jane mule hand made in Tuscany. It all comes down to you.
