In a world of fast fashion, the effortless elegance of classic French girl style becomes ever more desirable. The idea of valuing quality over quantity and curating an undeniably chic wardrobe that is relevant from year to year, is not only easier on the wallet but on the planet too.
In French girl style, ballet flats are as essential in the wardrobe as the Breton and the classic trench. Paired with jeans for weekend brunch, sharp blazer for work, or a dreamy lightweight skirt for picnicking, ballet flats are comfortable without sacrificing style. Now Denmark’s iconic designer, ECCO Shoes, has raised the bar in both comfort and chic with the Anine ballerina flat.
Named after Anine Frolich, an 18th century dancer and the first Danish ballet star, the Anine comes in a range of innovative and on-trend luxury leathers and also uses ECCO’s pioneering Fluidform™ Direct Comfort Technology. The soft PU leather is direct-injected into the one-component sole, wrapping and protecting the underfoot and delivering exceptional shock absorption and a bit of bounce.
Newly lightweight and with a 1.5mm heel, ECCO Anine comes in seven stunning colourways. Just as French girl style typically highlights one statement piece, the Anine range includes stand-out metallics, patent and the gorgeous Rose Dust Latica floral – a celebration of spring that will lift your heart and your heels. Find ECCO Anine at 195 Papanui Road, Merivale or shop online at www.eccoshoes.co.nz.
