Wearing in the summer

Summer footwear should be lightweight and breathable but, that doesn’t mean you have to spend two months wearing the same pair of flip flops. Take a day off from your grubby old pair of havaianas and try leather sandals, deck shoes, standout loafers and luxe sneakers

Bolder treads do mean you have to think a little bit harder about the rest of your outfit. With loafers, wear with chinos or linen trousers and leave a small gap between the hem of the trouser and top of the shoe.


A new twist on the classic loafer these soft grey suede slip-ons are updated with white twine and chrome. Perfect when you have to smarten up.
