In the world of dresses, Rixo has been one of those cult brands that have made a name for themselves in a relatively short time. Winning over magazine editors and wedding-goers alike with its vintage-inspired designs, it has managed to inhabit that rare space between fashion and mainstream, which is no easy feat. Well, if that's not enough, Rixo just announced today that it is entering the world of footwear with one seriously cute sandal collection, and yes, it's just as good as we'd hoped.
In true Rixo style, the collection has plenty of vintage undertones. Think paintbox brights, '60s-inspired florals and the odd nod to the '90s strappy silhouette. Crafted in a second-generation factory in Alicante, Spain, by a team that specialises in small production runs, the collection ranges from £185 to £255, but rest assured that these designs are sure to make their money back in cost per wear. I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the collection before it hit the website, and I can confirm it is even better in real life.
My favourite design has to be the Palma sliders with their graphic daisy embellishment and slip-on-and-go appeal. Coming in monochrome, green and pink, they are sure to liven up your summer denim. The one thing I would note is that the fit is a little snug, so unless you have particularly narrow feet, then best to size up. Despite being a little ambivalent about wearing heels again, I am also enamored with the simplicity of the Ciervo shoes, which would be perfect for the weddings I have coming up this year.

Style Notes: The monochrome hue and graphic floral make these slides feel very Mary Quant in the best way possible. I'll throw them on with black trousers and a nice top for casual dinner dressing.
Style Notes: I think the Palma in green is one of my favourite styles from the collection, and it will look good with everything from smart trousers and skirts to straight-leg jeans. As I mentioned in the intro, best to size up unless you have narrow feet.
Style Notes: Brides, take note because if I were getting married this year, I would be wanting these shoes.
