Sandal season is officially in full swing for the summer and new styles and silhouettes are definitely coming in to play in line with the hottest trends. One we’ll never get tired of is absolutely minimalism—a classic that suggests effortless fashionability and if there’s one thing that Brazilian brand, Ipanema has aced, it’s downplayed chic.
Teaming up with renowned designer, Phillippe Starck, the footwear giant unveils another installment of their ongoing collaboration. The brand new assemblage features an au courant take on past models and presents new ergonomics that fuses comfort and sophistication through four chic minimalist designs.
Starck is an internationally acclaimed French creator, designer, and architect. His serious understanding of contemporary mutations, introspectiveness, and conviction to change the world have accompanied one iconic creation after the other. “The closer you get to the body, the less you can lie. You have to go to the minimum in order to reach elegance and timelessness. The Ipanema with Starck collection explores the territory of high elegance paired with the utmost minimalism. When you reach elegance with a few dollars or euros, it’s no longer magic; it’s a modern miracle,” Starck tells on the collab.
