BRITISH footwear brand a Piedi have launched their spring and summer 2016 collection. Established in 2009 by former investment banker Mariam Syed the company is dedicated to creating affordable flat sandals. Syed comes from a long line of leather experts as her family has been trading within luxury leather fashion and accessories for several decades and Syed herself decided to follow in their footsteps, having spotted a niche in the footwear market for stylish and high quality sandals retailing at a reasonable price.
Specialising in flats, a Piedi (meaning “on foot” in Italian) is committed to creating elegant and timeless pieces highly suitable for the demands of the wearer’s busy life. The SS16 collection offers a wide selection within the brand’s three main lines – classic, resort and city – which are suitable for many different occasions.
The Classic collection features a variety of thong and H-bar sandals in a wide colour range – including metallic. The styles in the range come with feminine sounding names and have been designed with day-to-evening adaptability in mind.
As well as this, the Resort range is ideal for more casual occasions. These gladiator-style sandals are simple, yet elegant. The Resort line is a perfect holiday-wardrobe staple.
The City range is perfect for more urban requirements and features hessian smoking slippers in various colours.
This line is a continuation of the office-suitable flats that a Piedi added to the line in 2011 on the strength of two very successful years of solely offering sandals.
