"Picturing ones dreamily look on the ocean, the collection plays with the variety of thoughts and feelings evoked within. Tropical fruits, their taste and inherent beauty, plants and the unique diversity of rich colors, surfaces and haptics they offer, their smells, their taste... Colours like sky-oceanblue, coconut white, reed and kiwi green, coral and watermelon red, orange, citron yellow go along with natural, soft, fluent and trasparent, so as pure, rigid and clears materials".
That's the new Anntian S/S 2011 "OCEAN VIEW" Collection, the label started in Berlin in 2006 by designers Anne Hilken and Christian Kurt. Every piece is unique and special since graphics and colors are handpainted or handprinted.

Espadrilles were a must during my childhood, especially on summer holiday. My whole family was "espadrilled": my father wore them, my mother wore them and my bro wore them too. I can't remember when I stop taking them but I found a smart version of espadrilles at last. THE STRING REPUBLIC (and their second product name BESIDED) revisits the rope-soled sandal and the result is an explosion of creativity and colours.
Discover the story of the espadrilles and of The String Republic on their website and follow the link below to see more images.
