Two or three years ago espadrilles had a huge comeback. Everybody was buying them and wearing them, but not me. I must say I’m a bit picky sometimes. I really like some trendy stuff but I don’t like seeing it on every other person wearing it, so usually I don’t buy that kind of stuff. Except if I find that kind of item designed in an unique and special way.
So as you can see I’m still without my pair of espadrilles and I really like espadrilles. But not for a long time, because I found them, that special and unique pair. Sometimes waiting is worth it ;D.
I’ll begin my story about M-ISHKA brand with this quote: “The average woman falls in love seven times a year. Only six are with shoes.” – and all that six were in M-ISHKA shoes, it’s so hard to decide which color to take.
M-ishka espadrilles comes from Belgrade and they are designed by young designer Emilija Katic. If you are on the hunting for a new pair of chic, comfy and unique shoes for spring/summer now you know where to find them. Did I mention that they are handmade? Well yes they are, handmade shoes of beautiful soft suede leader and jute, 100% eco friendly.
As every pair is a handmade, Emilija explained how it takes one to two days for one pair of this beauties to make them, and the hardest part is that oversized bow (for that bow she even needs more material than for one pair of espadrilles), which I love so much and which give that spacial touch. The whole palette of colors of espadrilles you can find on M-ishka facebook page and instagram profile, where you can also contact lovely Emilija and order yourself one pair of M-ishkas.
And she doesn’t stop with espadrilles, you can also find slippers, gorgeous round bags and men espadrilles too with that M-ishka signature touch. For sure you ask yourself where does this name come from, I asked myself too and then Emilija told me how here mother called here always Mishka. I fell in love with her story and design at the first sight and I’m sure you are too.
