These shoes were made for walking

With my new slippers I will walk towards my holidays. Finally I'm leaving Milan for my much awaited holidays !
These slippers are actually called "Friulane", they are also known for the gondoliers shoes. They were born at the end of the Second World War, ​​in the countryside region near Venice, using waste materials such as old bicycle tires and old cloths. They were a low cost option to the expensive leather shoes.
I bought these "friulane" in one of the last few places in Venice were you will be assure to buy the artisanal ones. The store is called Gianni Dittura and it opened in 1948.
Mr.Dittura was nice and kind while helping me to find the right "friulane".

Wild Daisies

The motto to this post was this super kitsch sticker I saw in a car last week.
This image made me remember all the fashion items with daisies I've been seeing the last few months.

Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, is this true ?

To celebrate Spring, Supreme launched a collaboration with Vans. The classic Vans Shoe got a floral print as if it was an artist canvas. I'm in love with these sneakers, especially the textured fabric used.
The floral print was inspired by the 19th century french artist Henri Fantin-Latour work "A Basket of Roses".
I'm not a fan of still lifes but these one has a little something, maybe are the resemblances with FLT logo that made me appreciate it. 
Here are some floral looks suggestions: black & white from Stella McCartney; green & pink roses from Marc Jacobs; blue pants from Matthew Williamson; floral dress from Stella McCartney; Biker jacket from Rag & Bone.

New Wave

Appart from my lack of interest in sports, I've been noticing that a lot of brands are betting on surf clothes for this summer. These lycra "t-shirt" (for the unacquainted like me) were created for surfers to warm up and protect from the sun, but I guess they will play another function this summer. These rash guards will be a wave on the beaches this summer !
JCrew floral rashie; JCrew stripe and flower rashie; Madewell floral rashie. The JCrew rashguards have UPF 50. (UPF is the SPF mesurement for textiles)
These graphic rashies are both from Seea.
