Lolita Ivory White Suede Shoes
We’re really well known for our t-bar peep toes, so launching a barely there ankle strap sandal was quite new for us when we originally introduced Lolita to the collection. It’s the amazing flowers on the front which really make the statement, so we decided to keep the actual shoe nice and simple and understated, with a single piece across the foot and on trend ankle strap. That happens sometimes- usually we’ll design the shoe and then the embellishment, but sometimes we fall in love with the trim first, and design a shoe around it! The flowers are made from a gorgeous iridescent material which is holds its incredible 3D shape perfectly, and the finish seems to change from pink, to pale green and blue in the light- a bit like mother of pearl. There is a tiny pink jewel in the centre of each of the four flowers, which subtly picks up the soft pink hue of the petals, although it’s a really neutral shoe overall. The main material is a bright ivory suede, which is slightly more ‘white’ than our usual ivory, without being too brash looking.
Lolita really is a striking shoe, and really does stand out within the collection. We’ve tried it with jeans, we’ve tried it with a wedding dress, and we’ve tried it with a smart/ casual pleated skirt- they all work, proving Lolita is a great go-to sandal for any occasion. The straight heel makes the shoe look a little higher than it actually is, which means you can be uber stylish whilst staying super comfortable- the perfect combination!
Lolita is quite a stripped back pattern, so if you’re in between sizes we’d recommend ordering the smaller of the two. The soft suede will give a little during wear too.
