Ancient Greek Sandals is a niche fashion brand that launched in Athens in 2012, in the midst of the country’s financial crisis. It was founded by two young Greek talents, Boston business school graduate Nikolas Minoglou and designer Christina Martini, who had worked in Paris for Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton. Defying the downturn, Ancient Greek Sandals has grown steadily, year on year, featuring in leading fashion magazines, and becoming a fixture in highly curated stores such as Colette, Barneys, Selfridges… and Emporio Sirenuse.
To honor the 70s, which are at the heart of our Spring Summer Collection 2020, we’ve joined forces with Ancient Greek Sandals, re-imagining some of their most iconic styles to match our collection.
In particular, two stories are the inspiration behind the sandals: Que Onda! and Lurex Embroidery.
