Isabel Marant Étoile

For a little bit of french chic, look no further than this gorgeous pair of rope gladiator sandals from Isabel Marant Étoile. The monochrome vibes ensures ultimate versatility, while thick ankle straps are softened by finer detail around the foot.

Elina Linardaki

Greek designer Elina Linardaki offers bright, statement pieces perfect for sauntering around post-beach. Wear with a simple linen dress or go for full maximalist effect with bright prints (and maybe even an extra pom pom or two). Whatever your inclination, the shoes will do most of the work.
