The Ultimate Guide to Espadrilles

What are Espadrilles? 

Espadrilles are the summer sandal. 

An icon of Spanish heritage, the history of espadrilles stretch way back to the 13th century. Forget fast fashion, with their effortless and elegant style, espadrilles prove true style is timeless. 

Cool, crisp, and comfortable, our classically crafted line-up of espadrilles was crafted in Spain by master artisans using traditional techniques. Whether you reach for espadrille sandals with signature rope braiding, natural cork soles, soft canvas, or suede fabrications, we’ve got the women's espadrilles you’ll crave when the heat hits.

Eager to experiment with colour? 

Nothing screams ‘summer’ like bold, bright shades that beg to bask in the sun. ARABELLA is made for the adventurers. Tonal wedge heels—braided of course—jute finishing and supple suede uppers, ARABELLA’s colour block palette is guaranteed to lift your spirits (and your outfit). 

Amplify your look by playing with different shades, gradients, and textures. @stripeycoral commands centre stage by pairing the electric blue shade of ARABELLA with the inky stripes of her shirt. Styled with white tailored linen trousers for a crisp and chic coordinated combo, we’re obsessed.

If you’re going to wear neutrals, then really wear them. Embrace earthy tones and tactile fabrics for a serene approach to summer-dressing. When it comes to truly timeless sandals, you can’t beat a nude wedge.

ALYSSA is the ultimate summer investment, the kind of sandals that promise maximum style mileage season after season. From country weddings to exotic beach destinations, or even an everyday stroll about town, ALYSSA will always turn heads. 

Curious about the key to tonal dressing? Just ask @amynevfashiondiaries. The secret lies in with the combination of complimentary shades. Start with a blazer in a neutral colour and add high waisted, tailored shorts for subtle retro-inspired style. Shorts not quite your thing? Opt for a cropped pair of wide-leg trousers to showcase the elegant ballerina straps in all their glory.

Flat Out

Flat Sandals  don’t mean your outfit has to flatline. A flat pair of espadrilles are the perfect choice for your summer outings. Equal parts elegant and practical, they’re made to be worn pretty much everywhere, and their easy-breezy, do-it all attitude is what we love most. 

Platform Slider Sandals
Mules are the epitome of summer, effortless to slip on and forever classic. There's a reason  they’re our sandal of choice, year after year.  

Our favourite flat mule sandal? Meet TEAL. Serving up an essential dose of minimalist style, these espadrille-inspired flats come complete with an elevated, cork-filled sole and a halo of rope detailing.  

Slip them on straight-leg jeans and a statement blouse for an easy work to weekend look, or switch from denim to statement midi-dresses to salute sun-soaked summer evenings. 

Chunky Fisherman Sandals

Fisherman Sandals are proving more popular than ever, especially for fans of timeless, nostalgic silhouettes. 

Consider the ADELYNN espadrilles, crafted with soft leather and propped on an elevated (and all-together comfortable) flatform sole, these leather sandals are surprisingly versatile. 

Style them with your favourite maxi dress, tailored co-ords, even your denim jeans for an edgy take on summer styling.
