This fashion editor is VERY excited about them
I love all kinds of shoes, I probably have at least 50 pairs in my wardrobe, so it takes a lot for me to be really blown away by a pair. So when I found these beauties, I just had to share them.
First off, they’re by the brand that single-handedly put basket bags back on the map: Cult Gaia (you’ll have seen the Ark Bamboo bag all over your Instagram). So the fact designer Jasmin Larian is branching out into shoes with Net-A-Porter is pretty exciting news in itself.
And needless to say, the result is pure #shoefie gold. There are raffia flats in neutral tones of sand and black, as well as suede sandals with a bamboo heel to match the bag offering.
But the real showstopper for me is the Alia leather mule, which comes in gold, white and tan, featuring a delicate cut-out leather pattern and a round orb that is more objet d’art than heel.
For summer, I’ll be wearing mine with an oversized linen suit or a vintage-style floral dress.
You’re more than welcome.
