Pedro García‘s S/S 12 collection pushes through the brand’s identity of experimental luxury. Spanning over three generations, the García family retain themselves true “zapateros” or cobblers, and this dedication to craftsmanship is clearly perceived in the comfort of their shoes.
Their spring selection consists of their molded cork footbeds on almost all silhouettes, from thong sandals to ankle booties. Their signature flat features raw edge suede, Velcro® back closure and a tone-on-tone stone embellishment across the instep. Another playful thong selection uses oversized and exaggerated laser-cut fringe to create a new silhouette.
Wedges return in covered suede and espadrille heels, with double ankle strap uppers and raw edge satin – another key design element of the brand. A low-pitched platform mixes denim and waxed vegetable leather for a flirty summer look.
Day-to-evening sandals remain on the heavier side with ankle high uppers covering most of the instep in raw edge suede and the same waxed leather. Standout items include layered fringe suede ankle boot on the round almond toe last that made the brand a favorite among the fashion-set. -Jenn Tello
