These amazing raffia and silk espadrilles from Lanvin just made it to the top of my wishlist for this upcoming summer season!
Though you’ve seen me blasting the Lanvin Summer 2011 bags, now it’s big time I praise something from their SS 2011 collection. The flip flop sandals have been a summer love of mine since forever, so Alber Elbaz‘ silk denim bow sandals struck gold in my heart on the spot.
The only trouble I have is the price tag – $422 for a pair of flip flops? It just defies the entire “summer relaxed style” saying. So I have this idea – let’s make this a DIY project: take your regular summer flip flops and work a denim or silk bow on them! It has to work! And more – you have the liberty the Lanvin flip flops don’t grant: you can change, interchange, match and mix the bows to your heart’s pleasure! Let’s give thanks to Mr Alber Elbaz for this wonderful idea!
