This It bag brand has just launched shoes and we are here for it

Cult designer handbag label Wandler is launching shoes, and not a moment too soon. Whether you realise it or not, you'll have seen the Dutch label's Hortensia bag everywhere. Thanks to its elegant curves, it was an instant hit when it was created by founder Elza Wandler in 2017.

Wandler also created her entire business in less than a year, after telling Bart Ramakers at a dinner that she was thinking of creating bags, who then asked her for some sketches. They went to London and invited buyers to look at the designs, who all wanted in.

Fast forward to 2019, and the designer has created a line of colourful yet minimalist shoes that are perfectly in keeping with the brand's signature aesthetic. They haven't even launched yet (set your alarm clocks for tomorrow), but I've got a feeling they won't be around long.

She says, 'With how our bags have evolved over the seasons, it felt like a good moment to show another side of my creativity and ride that wave now.'

There are five styles: the Bente Kitten, Isa Sandal, Niva Mule, Lina Boot and Lotte Mule. They all tap perfectly into our current obsession with everything 90s, and include some pink peep-toe mules Carrie Bradshaw would kill for, which also come in a very SS19 lime green.

The collection also includes some pointy mules and ankle boots in more wearable neutral shades, and prices will start at £330.

It will be available to buy tomorrow at Net-A-Porter, Matches, Browns, Bergdorf Goodman, MyTheresa, Moda Operandi, Galeries Lafayette, Harvey Nichols and Lane Crawford.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
