The viral raffia slippers taking over the internet

In case you hadn’t noticed, raffia is a thing this season. Whether you’re after a basket bag or a straw hat, the natural material is everywhere, and that explains why these raffia slippers have gone viral.

They are by Casablanca-based brand Zyne, founded by designers Zineb Britel and Laura Pujol, who create shoes inspired by traditional Morrocan babouche styles. Although the brand was launched in 2016, things have started kicking off (excuse the pun) this summer thanks to fashion heavyweights sporting the slippers.

The likes of Leandra Medine, Eva Chen, Desert Mannequin and Chiara Ferragni have all opted for the natural woven Raffy style, though Zyne also have dressier slippers in the range.

This style clearly works just as well for a casual weekend away as it does for work.

Team it with denim cut-offs and a basket bag a la Eva, or dress it up with a blazer like Desert Mannequin.

Either way, be safe in the knowledge that you’ve found the perfect summer flat.
