I had an amazing trip to Paris – and even more joy – I brought home these lovely ones. Bring on spring please. It’s the bold blue and white stripes that mark these espadrilles a part of Balenciaga’s Bazar line – a collection inspired by traditional Sampeng market bags. Crafted from synthetic raffia and vinyl rope, with a square toe – a twist on the classic espadrille design. I’m ready for an exotic holiday – good thing I’m leaving for a few days in sunny Spain in a few weeks.
