One of the most imaginative, surreal, and impactful artists of the 20th Century, Salvador Dali, would be 109 today. He was known across the globe, not only for his highly imaginative paintings, but his eccentric behavior which included keeping wild cats as house pets, antagonizing his friends with pranks, and wearing some distinctly surreal outfits.
In a world of antics and surprises, one thing never changed: his espadrilles. The traditional Spanish shoe made from canvas and jute, and typically worn to the beach, was worn by Dali as he paraded around the streets of Paris and to evening parties.
Coclico’s own Rai sandal is inspired by the Spanish Master’s choice of footwear. Updated with a peep toe and woven leather details, the Rai is the perfect shoe for today’s modern, if eccentric, woman.
Spring is in the air, and we’re celebrating the coming of a warm weekend by making memories with a bottle of wine and some good company. We’ll also be celebrating ARBOR DAY by taking a winter’s worth wine corks to designated drop off spots. Who knows, come this time next year those corks might just be a component of our new favorite shoes!
At Coclico we are proud to use solid, Portuguese cork for our wedges and platforms, even when covered with leather the wedge underneath is recycled cork. We love its beauty as an all natural product, its ultimate renewability (trees are never killed during harvesting), and its function – strong yet light and buoyant which is great for shock absorption. Check out our selection of cork wedges and have a happy weekend!
