The Kitty Margaux – A must have summer sandal. AFTER HOURS

Step into June in the Kitty Margaux Sandal

Summer is looking up and we have the perfect sandal for you to walk into June with. Our newest addition to our Spring /Summer 2020 is our Kitty Margaux. Different to our usual Terry de Havilland shoes, the Margaux is a flat sandal, not a platform heel. Similarly to the rest of our collection, keeping with the Terry de Havilland 70’s identity the sandal is in faux snakeskin available in black, gold and natural hues. Three neutral colourways which are easy to pair with the majority of your summer wardrobe.

The Kitty Margaux is for the Terry de Havilland girl who loves to explore a new city. Walking miles and still remaining on style. This sandal is beyond comfortable and effortlessly stylish whether you pair them with trousers, a mini skirt or a maxi dress on a beach.

Where did the sandal start?

The Sandal probably has the most history when it comes to shoes. In fact, summers favourite shoe has actually dated back to ancient times, so there have definitely been style variations over the years. From the gladiator-style to Jackie Onassis Capri design, slingbacks or 90’s platform sandals that the spice girls swore by, the sandal has certainly been reinvented in every form, shape and hue available.

One of the most ancient findings of the sandal and footwear as a whole was found in Fort Cave in Oregan. This dates back to over 10,000 years woven from sagebrush bark – certainly a different method to our patent leather Kitty Margaux. The sandal didn’t just stop at Oregan, it has an important part of history worldwide. From the Romans, the greeks, the Japenese – who wore a wooden board with a cloth, and the Indian Paduka which combined wood and metal to create the perfect sandal.

The 70s style inspiration

Our inspiration for the Kitty Margaux didn’t quite date back to 10,000 years ago. As always we look to the 70s to inspire us. Not everyone wore platforms 24/7 sometimes flats were essential, although when not in platform heels, clogs were also in fashion too. We took the silhouette of the 70’s platform wedge (Margaux) and lowered into a flat form. In true Terry de Havilland style, we have three colourways available natural snake, black and gold – three hues which combine 2020 trends and 70’s styling. You can shop our three Kitty Margaux’s below:
