Must-have summer sandals: So much more than just flip flops
Despite the April showers that may be falling we have certainly gotten ourselves into holiday mode here at the YCB offices. Constantly browsing the web for a new bikini or lusting over that perfect cover up; don’t even get us started on those Balenciaga canvas beach totes. Swoon! But what is a summer holiday without the perfect pair of flip flops. When it comes to flip flops it can be hard to take an adventurous direction. The prints too crazy, the colours too bold or there’s just never anything quite signature for you. Not anymore thanks to Uzurii, the new flip flop designer whose lush pieces are sweeping the web this season.
Uzurii was founded by Brazilian born Shieglee Ferreira dos Santos who took her years of experience and exposure to different cultures to create the collection it is today. The designs of Uzurii are the artistic reflection of the Shieglee’s life, literally the realisation of her dream. The place where all the inspiration reaches its full potential and is converted into a creation is her atelier. Now based in the Netherlands, Uzurii’s HQ is equally as stylish as the product, filled with colour and has an inspiring quality that reflects the effort and work that goes into these dazzling collections. One of the unswerving factors and a major pillar upon which the success of Uzurii has been built is perfection.
The unique thing about Uzurii is it’s like the best accessory you’ve ever had. It’s jewellery for your feet, an ornamental finish that just feels so luxurious you won’t want to take them off your feet. Evident in the Precious, Amazon and Fabulous Collections, the stones used are intertwined with the strap to enable a flexible movement and a more expensive feel for you.
We love the varied size gems in the Night Collection and the strong fly and spider finishes to the Animal Collection. No style is without a little touch of sparkle, even in the Original Collection, so the flip flop always feels feminine no matter where you are. What’s more, Uzurii even make beach bags, so it’s never been easier to get a stylish holiday shop together, especially with these incredibly glitzy bags to have you stand out on the beach.
Enlisting the help of Dutch photographer Michiel Laurents to shoot the SS16 collection, Uzurii have clearly captured the spirit of summer in the collection and now more than ever we want to be a Uzurii girl. Well who wouldn’t want to look stylish on the beach?
Even better, every Uzurii is completed by a colorful gift box with a satin travel pouch. The Precious, Fabulous, Amazon and Animal Collection are presented in a somewhat larger gift box and have an extra cushion. It doesn’t matter if you get them or buy them, Uzurii’s are always gifts. It’s these little touches that complete the Uzurii experience and make every piece a collectable for the beach, bar and beyond.
