THE CHIC SANDAL MAKEOVER
A long-anticipated collection of high-fashion Birkenstocks is here, with designs launching by Valentino, Rick Owens and more. My favourite? The classic ‘ugly sandal’ reimagined in raffia and silk by hotelier Marie-louise Sciò of the family behind Tuscan retreat Il Pellicano. The collection’s name, Il Dolce Far Niente, translates as ‘the sweetness of doing nothing’. Simply idyllic. From £290, matchesfashion.com.
