When my friend Suzie sent me images of these slippers by Charles Phillip Shanghai, I immediately fell in love. Charles, originally from Milan, moved to Shanghai years ago with his best friend and design partner Sheila. Inspired by their new life in Shanghai’s French Concession, the ease of the Moroccan babush, the elegance of the English gentry slipper and the freshness of striped cottons and soft colorful linens, the Charles Phililp Shanghai slipper was born. Soon to be available in select Bloomingdale’s locations, Colette, and Luisa Via Roma, you can score these puppies for only $98 a pair.
