turns out THE shoe for summer is the holden sandal by isabel marant.
proof is the fact the shoe sold out immediately on first run and is now showing up in stores and on-line in it’s second production of the summer. perhaps made more attractive due to its less literal and more modern take on the birkenstock, this shoe provides a chic yet practical summer shoe to the modern woman on the go. phoebe philo was the first to present the crisscross sandal (along a reworked birk) in her resort collection this spring for céline.
isabel marant grabbed the ball and ran with it in her spring/summer 2014 collection and stores have not been able to keep the holden sandal in stock. not convinced? just wait ’til next summer when everyone, and I mean everyone, from high to low, will have a knock off. lucky for us zara, always with its finger on the pulse of the fashion set, offers a less pricey option for the risk adverse amongst us. . .
