Wanderlust: Shoe Inspired Travel

Places we would like to see and the shoes we would take with us. 

 

Taddeucci Sandals on Vacation in Cuba

If we were traveling to Cuba, we would go into the country and stroll through the tobacco plantations in our comfy slide sandals by Giulia Taddeucci.

 

Kupuri 819 sandal on Vacation

We would wear our Kupuri city sandals to sneak into the Castle of the Peratallada in Catalonia, Spain. We would pack an evening picnic and sip some Cava by the pool. Just don’t tell anyone we were there.

 

Satorisan Xamena sandal on Vacation

In Tahiti, we would eat an early meal and wander back to our bungalow in our Satorisan sandals just in time to watch the sunset and the sky change colors.

Who wants to go with us?

Proud to Present: Coclico

Coclico "Dore"

“A shoe is a story disguised as an object.” ~ Coclico

We have been selling Coclico at the shop for several seasons now, and to us the collections just seem to be getting better and better, season after season. We thought it would be nice to tell their story and show why “slow fashion” is as important to their esthetic as well as their philosophy for producing beautiful shoes.

Coclico speaks to a personal identity that extends beyond style and luxury to our way of living in the world. Consciously, artfully, elegantly. At Coclico, they believe that luxury isn’t the ability to purchase endlessly, but the privilege of choosing wisely. Their materials are sourced locally in Europe, near their small, family-run factory in Mallorca, Spain.

Coclico "Ivonne"

Coclico founder Sandra Canselier descends from a long line of French shoemakers; her father, grandfather and great-grandfather all made shoes in the province of Pays de la Loire. It is the region’s local wildflower coquelicot that lends its name to the company. Now a firmly entrenched New Yorker, Sandra continues making shoes in the French tradition.

Clean lines and a neutral palette are the cornerstones of each Coclico collection. Subtle beauty in architectural silhouettes are carved from wood, cork and leather. Coclico eschews ornamentation and excess, invoking instead a classic, timeless expression wherein beauty is only enhanced by wear.

Their shoes are produced in a small, historic factory in Mallorca, Spain, where Sandra is on a first-name basis with the craftspeople who make each pair of shoes by hand. Coclico are the only shoes made in this family owned and operated factory. The facility is noted for providing living wages, environmental reliability and setting the bar for best practices. The craftspeople take pride in the production of shoes, and their skill ensures the consistent quality of our brand.

Slow production is not just one of Coclico’s fundamental values, but a guiding principle that affects how they approach their work and lives each and every day. “Slow our consumption, slow our impact on the environment, and invest in the things we wear with thoughtfulness and care. We expect everything we wear to endure, which is why we produce shoes that will look good, season after season.”

Coclico "Iris"

“Beauty evolves from the union of quality and time.” ~ Coclico
We couldn’t agree more.
