Is there anything that The Row can’t do? From exceptional tailoring to covetable handbags, the brand’s considered approach to luxury fashion has been changing the way we dress since it’s launch in 2006, and 17 years later we’re still obsessed with their pared-back, minimalist aesthetic (not so bad for a brand that started as a quest for the “perfect” white tee).
While we count down to Paris Fashion Week every season just to get styling tips from The Row’s runway show, it’s inevitably the accessories that are front and centre. Remember last year’s fisherman sandals? The Row did it first. And the luxe leather flip flops that started popping up everywhere on the high-street? Yep, The Row lead the charge. They even jumped on the ballet flat trend while the rest of us were still wearing our winter boots. So when it comes to the shoes that we’re going to want to wear this spring/summer, there’s no better place to start than The Row, and they’ve just dropped a summer sandal that I’m confident is going to be an instant bestseller.
The “Kris” is a strappy, gladiator sandal crafted from supple, Italian leather, and is the kind of understated and effortlessly chic shoe that we’ve come to expect from the brand. Already a hit with influencers and editors alike, the easy-to-wear flat sandal is perfect for the sunny summer ahead, but also versatile enough to wear in spring with a pair of jeans and a slouchy knit. What’s not to love?
As with anything from The Row, these are on the pricer end of the scale, but the craftsmanship and quality make them a reliable investment for long-term wear, and unlike flash-in-the-pan trends that won’t be wearable again in a year’s time, the criss-cross straps and flat sole are a timeless design that will have you covered for years to come, so you can rest assured that’ll you get plenty of wear out of them.
