Espadrille are the most comfortable shoes in the world I swear! I went in spain last spring and fell in love for them! Here in Quebec, we said espadrille to mean running shoes but the name espadrille come from a the spanish word « esparto » who’s the name of the herb used to create the soles. The espadrille is one of the oldest shoes the human created and it’s still the best! Be aware, it’s hard to find real ones theses days cause a lot of company recreate the shoe without the real artisanal technic and you’ll not find the same comfort and durability. If you’re passing by Montreal, a suggest you to go at the « Espagne à vos pieds» boutique, at the corner of Mont-royal and st-denis streets. Diego Arnedo, the owner, imports the espadrille from he’s grand- parents village: Cervera Rio del Alhama. He have a really interesting parcours and preserved he’s typical spanish « joie de vivre »
I was looking for set design inspiration lately this week and my research led me to discover Irving Penn work. This photographer is famous for his still life photographs and did a lot of beauty set design for vogue. He really have an authentic and crude way to explore everyday objects and I love it! Keep an eye on colors, it’s truly beautiful! Enjoy!
