cool, calm and collected...

I don't think I have ever used the word 'calm'  to describe a sandal before.

Until today that is.

When I came across these flatforms on asos the other week, I thought they were quite the most serene sandals I have seen in many a long day.

I'm not sure what it is about them that conveys these qualities. Maybe it's the spare simple elegant lines or the subdued colour palette. But whatever it is, it works, for this is footwear to be 

I'm thinking the asos design team must have felt the same way as they named it 'wistful'

Is that not the best name for a sandal ever.

At the opposite end of the spectrum is the playfulness of Pollini!

Italian label Pollini have made a firm mark on the fashion world with their directional footwear, beautifully crafted using the finest leathers and innovative techniques. Now with Nicholas Kirkwood at the helm as Creative Director, Pollini’s sleek styling is translated across sculptural shapes and sky-scraping designs in bold colour pops. 

I am mightily smitten by these ones. They are the opposite of calm. They are just a little crazy. They look like little picnic baskets or wicker chairs for feet. Wonderful...
