My birthday has just been which in my mind has always marked the start of summer -my favourite season. Just recently I’ve been looking through my wardrobe and digging out all the summery pieces I lived in this time last year and getting them ready for my upcoming holidays.
A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited to a private viewing of an exciting new luxury footwear brand ‘Zaccy’s’. The event itself was held at the designer’s home and gave attendees the chance to try on and shop the full collection. To say I was absolutely blown away by the quality of the shoes is an understatement. Zaccy’s encapsulates everything you would expect from a high end footwear brand and more. Each shoe has been visualised, designed and hand crafted with minute attention to detail, which comes down to the fact Meg Cope (founder of Zaccy’s) always dreamed of creating her own collection and her passion for design is evident.
Think espadrilles reworked. The collection comprises three key colour palettes which will easily slot into your capsule holiday wardrobe. The ‘Christina’ style in my opinion is the perfect wedge. This is the highest heel out of the three styles featured and just oozes elegance and class. This style is ideal for late summer night drinks with friends or special occasions. If you like to have a little bit of height but not so much that you feel as though you’re wearing heels the ‘Giselle’ is the shoe for you. I fell in love with and purchased the Giselle in Black for this exact reason! The iridescent black leather is just stunning, like nothing I’ve seen before. Minimal and subtly beautiful, just an absolute must have item. This same luxury leather is used for the ‘Margarita’ style. A low heeled, practical espadrille with a closed toe. At the event, I was torn between these two styles as I could see myself wearing them nonstop. Ideal for day trips, walks in the city and even for flying in. If you have a short break planned this summer, I would recommend the ‘Margaritas’ as they are a fantastic all-rounder. If you have a holiday planned with a small baggage allowance, they are perfect to help you transition from day to night in an instant.
The ‘Giselle’ in Black, £229.99, available at http://www.zaccys.com.
Imagine super soft, buttery leather which moulds to the shape of your foot after a few days of wear. Wedges & most other forms of summer shoes can be SO painful & there really is nothing worse than buying a cute pair of shoes which you can’t wear because they cut and dig into your skin. All shoes in the Zaccy’s collection are lined with high quality leather and feature a breathable memory foam sole. Ideal for practical wear without sacrificing style.
Being almost 5’10 I sometimes struggle to find stylish low heeled wedges which I can wear casually – after all, nobody wants to choose between comfort and style… One of the main reasons I liked the Zaccy’s collection was the fact they feature a range of heel sizes to suit you; from a low heel, which you could easily wear all day for city breaks or spontaneous shopping trips, to a super high 6-inch heel which is sure to head turns wherever you walk them.
The orange embroidery and neon tones have flavors of the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2016 ‘Caretto’ collection. This pair is on my wish list this summer…
WHATEVER THE WEATHER
Wear and wear again without worrying about the weather forecast. Every shoe has an anti slip sole meaning you can walk with confidence no matter what the weather. Plus you can rest assured that your new favourite shoes won’t ruin in light showers; the hand applied waxed jute braids are waterproof meaning they will survive endless unpredictable British summers…
