Footwear for Spring / Summer 08 - The Bandal

Etro

Balenciaga

Givenchy


Givenchy



This seasons must have piece of footwear was the shoe/ boot or the shoot. I think for spring / summer 08 the Bandal is a great idea. Whats a bandal? Well it is the best word I can think of to describe the kind of boot like footwear I have seen at some of the spring / summer 08 shows. A sort of cross between a sandal and a boot or a knee high gladiator sandal. I have seen these at Givenchy, Etro and of course worn with the much discussed Balenciaga dresses.

I would really love to get myself a pair of bandals. Great for wearing with a summery mini dress and would work really well with the boho chic, floral prints or tribal trends for this summer. The bandal is ideal for those who love to wear a skirt with knee high boots but need a lighter alternative for summer.
I have yet not managed to find a reasonably priced high street alternative to the bandal but if do I will defintely be blogging about. If you know of one please let me know.

Have you ever realized that when you buy readymade suits you get a choice of only a few colors & styles, also finding the perfect fit are quite difficult? Wouldn’t it be better to choose from over 2000 different British & Italian fabrics and get a tailor made suit at a similar price that you pay for readymade suits?

We are a company based in Hong Kong and have been providing custom made suits & shirts since 1997. With representatives in major cities around the globe we can arrange to show you the fabric samples and take your measurements, or you can also place your orders online with the help of our measuring guide. There are over 2000 fabrics to choose from along with all the latest styles.

All our suits and shirts are produced by highly skilled Shanghainese tailors in Hong Kong and delivered in about 4 weeks, express delivery can be made in 2 weeks at a minor extra cost. In case you are not able to find what you are looking for then please let us know your requirement may it be in words or by a photograph and we could arrange it for you.

We also have an outlet at the Hotel Intercontinental Budapest where you are most welcome to visit us. Though we are not located in streets like Savile Row (London), we have still been able to offer made to measure suits to many VIP’s from around the world.

Actually, it is not quite accurate, calling this a Bandal. Bandals are a patented brand name of interchangeable sandals. Check out the site at www.bandals.com
