With clean, modern glamour and a splash of exoticism, Giambattista Valli delivers the ideal wedge sandal for fun summer outings. Funky and spunky, these platforms are just grown-up enough to deliver some sex appeal.
All the elements are here: sultry black satin makes a touchable alternative to leather, which would be too earthy and expected for such a design. Metallic gold straps, knotted across the toes, lighten things up and set the scene for the intriguing lacquered detail, jewel-like buckles that make you look twice. I love the bright turquoise loops (enter the fun!), which suit the embellishments’ tribal feel. Topped off with sensually thin, wrap-around ankle straps, you’ve got the precise amount of spice. This is a recipe that works deliciously. On My Theresa for $1,095.
Pair with: Don’t carry a clunky tote with these considerable platforms. Keep the look light with Victoria Beckham’s unadorned leather pouch. Bright orange sets off turquoise details beautifully. On Net-a-Porter for $650.
