Do you remember macramé? I do. My mother went through a macramé phase and I remember her sitting at our kitchen table combing, braiding and knotting this scratchy thread. Looking back the results give me the creeps (and I believe my mother will agree).

This must have been in the 70s. And now, around 40 years later, Alber Elbaz created an amazing Spring/Summer collection for Lanvin, which includes (yes, you’re guessing right) macramé elements – within the range of shoes. And I love it.  🙂





  1. Love the shoes you have featured.
    LOVE THEM. & your blog in general
