SHOES:

FENDI Tri-Tone Leather Espadrille-Trimmed ‘Croc Embossed Junia’ Slip-On Flats, Size 7.5

Espadrille woven trim is a summertime expectation, but Fendi has put a twist on an otherwise traditional seasonal flat: the black leather slipper slide is subtly trimmed in deep navy, and is topped off by a dark black patent croc-embossed cap toe.  A triple textured, tri-hued knock-out of a casual shoe.  In fantastic condition.  Fits like a 7.5, European 38.5.  Originally retailed for $825, our price is $249.

CHANEL Black Patent and Felted Camellia Open Toe Kitten Heel Slides, Size 9.5 – SOLD

Steep slides can be challenging, but these gentle 3-inch heels are walk-able and ladylike.  The vamp is covered by a 2-inch wide strap, and made elevated and complete by a felted wool camellia atop the foot; a serene yet unexpected juxtaposition of material for the season.  Hidden deep within the structured flower’s center is a small signature CC enamel button, secretly placed, though the shoe’s Chanelness speaks through the camellia alone.  Fits like a 9.5, though sized a European 41.5.  In good condition.  Priced at $249. SOLD

ACCESSORIES:

HERMÈS ‘Reve D’Australie’ Silk Scarf by Zoé Pauwels – SOLD

Titled “Dream of Austrailia” and originally designed in 1999, this gorgeous silk scarf by Hermès artist, Zoé Pauwels, is a beautifully inspired interpretation of the mystic beginnings of the natural world Down Under, giving homage to Aboriginal art and their “Dreamtime” beliefs. 

“The Dreamtime is a commonly used term for describing important features of Aboriginal spiritual beliefs and existence. It is not generally well understood by non-indigenous people. Aboriginals believe that the Dreamtime was way back, at the very beginning. The land and the people were created by the Spirits.”*

While all Hermes scarves are works of art, this one is truly a masterpiece of both traditional Aboriginal style and layered history.  Size 35 x 35″ square.  Priced at $299. SOLD

TOM FORD Golden Amber to Black Square-Framed ‘Helene’ Sunglasses – SOLD

Edgy yet glamorous, these oversized shades are a fabulously stylish accessory.  The translucent smokey amber color fades into subtle tortoise-shell to black side stems, and while unique in color, they remain oddly subdued in their hue, allowing them to pair nicely with sunny days year round.  Like new, with box.  The “Helene” sunglasses currently retail for $445, our price is $199.  SOLD
