Step into Summer: Introducing Soludos x Anthropologie

April 13, 2018

What’s the first thing we pack? Well, the passport. But shoes are a very close second.

For summer’s upcoming journeys, we turned to our friends at Soludos—the NYC-based espadrille masters—to dream up pairs worthy of space in your carry-on. The result? Soludos x Anthropologie, a 10-style limited-edition collaboration combining ultra-comfortable silhouettes, thoughtful details, and statement-making embellishments. From pommed platforms to fringed sneakers, each is designed for both walks on the beach and strolls through the city.

“Soludos is a favorite year after year,” says Anthropologie buyer Meredith Mulligan. “The brand resonates perfectly with the heart of Anthropologie, and we’re so excited to introduce these exclusive styles.”

The collection was inspired by two warm-weather hot spots: Bahia, Brazil and the island of Panarea, part of the stunning Aeolian archipelago off the coast of southern Italy. Brazil’s lively markets and legendary dance scene are reflected in vibrant florals and intricate embroidery, while neutral tones and natural raffia call to mind the simplicity of life on the Mediterranean.

Before the season officially kicks off, we asked Sara Escudero—the stylish globetrotter behind @collagevintage—to take the collection for a little test drive in Palm Springs. During a long weekend at the gorgeous Korakia Pensione retreat, she styled them every way under the sun. “I especially love the denim styles, and the embroidery is such a dream,” says Sara. “I’m packing them for my next trip to Mexico and Spain—they go with everything.”

Happy travels, from our closet to yours.
