Birkenstock and the Birkenstock-type sandal (remember Celine's fur lined version?) is enjoying a healthy resurgence. Made all the more popular by those "fashion stars" who chose to incorporate a pair into their particular brand of chic. While they're not my cup of tea, it's interesting to watch the iconic shoe's style evolution.
The sporty and a little ‘nordic’ world of Birkenstock shoes meets the poetic universe of Marta Ferri, the young Milanese fashion promise with a penchant for ornate and handcrafted fabrics.
The collection includes the classic double buckle sandals with the home furnishing-inspired floral patterns that are a now signature of the designer’s style, both in her made-to-measure clothing items and in the accessories. The Birkenstock sandals, famous for their comfortable soles, have now discovered their romantic side thanks to Marta Ferri and her creativity.
