Mymu Gets High
For several seasons now, the espadrille has been enjoying a revival, and there are plenty of reasons to be thankful for that. (A brief relief from stiletto-induced foot pain is just one we could mention.) We’ve been especially taken with the options from Mymu, Gabriela Lanardonne’s line, inspired by the Argentine alpargatas she saw as a child in her father’s native Buenos Aires. But woman cannot live on flats alone—just ask any of the editors and stylists at the shows, where anything shorter than 6″ is almost unheard of. Problem, meet solution. For Spring ’11, Lanardonne is introducing wedges, in many of the same styles she’s already offered as flats. Soon you’ll be able to tower away—and if you do feel like staying a bit closer to the ground, you’ll be glad to know the classic flats aren’t going anywhere for Spring ’11. They’ll even be offered in a few bold color-block versions, like hot pink and orange. Sound like anything you’ve seen recently?
