Finding inspiration from his mother’s old getaway photos, Erdem toned down his usual feminine conservatism with slightly boyish elements this season – like slouchy trousers, loose shirts and boxy jackets.

The first avarca sandal originated in Menorca, a small island in the Spanish Mediterranean, and were made from recycled tires to keep the feet of farmers and villagers cool. Since 1945 Avarcas Pons has specialized in artisan Menorcan sandals for three generations. I bought myself a pair of these years ago when I lived in Spain and I can’t even begin to explain how happy I am that they are available stateside now. Trust me, you will love them!
