I am so happy I won the Penelope Chilvers Espadrilles Moment photography competition. As you might remember, I found a pair of amazing soft leather espadrilles in Ada Kamara’s store in Paros. I was inspired by the colorful ribbon detail of the espadrilles and immediately photographed them in front of a pool. While writing the post on my new espadrilles and reading more about Penelope Chilvers shoes I found about the competition and sent my picture never expecting to win.
Even though Chilvers is recognized as a specialist for her Dandy slipper, which I crave for too by the way, her summer staple is a collection of authentically made leather espadrilles incorporating the traditional Catalan methods of espadrille making using natural jute and hand-sewn construction. Her designs can be purchased directly from the Penelope Chilvers online boutique, and from fashion stores and boutiques in over 17 countries worldwide including Selfridges, Liberty and Harrods in London. For those of you who visit Paros you can go to Ada Kamara’s store in Paroikia.
Stay tuned I am working on the outfit post!
Have a lovely Day!!!
