When shoe de­signer and Par­sons School of De­sign grad­u­ate Ser­ena Uziyel re­turned to Is­tan­bul af­ter hon­ing her cord­wain­ing tech­niques in Mi­lan and Florence, she joined forces with broth­ers Enis and Arnir on their ven­ture, Sanayi 313, a Turk­ish con­cept bou­tique that com­bines in­te­rior fur­nish­ings, fash­ion and food. Uziyel, who came on board from the shoe de­sign depart­ment of Zara (she had pre­vi­ously done stints at lux­ury brands Devi Kroell, Ju­dith Leiber and Es­cada), wanted to launch a col­lec­tion of shoes and bags that struck a bal­ance be­tween mod­ern style, tra­di­tional Ot­toman weav­ing tech­niques and Ital­ian shoe­mak­ing. The re­sult is a bril­liantly bonkers col­lec­tion of raf­fia slides, san­dals and clutches fes­tooned with pom­poms, tas­sels and studs. With an aes­thetic that some­how sug­gests Le­an­dra Me­dine and Anna Dello Russo on holiday with a Turk­ish prince, these bags and flats are about to be­come the next big In­stahits. It might not be sum­mer­time, but it sure is time to in­vest.
