​A Midsummer Night's Mule

Feb 1st 2019

Thierry Rabotin’s Bambi and Britney sandals temper haute femininity with trendy touches for a grown-up twist.

Revived for the upcoming seasons is the mule. This trendy silhouette is on repeat from autumn in a wide array of colors and materials inspired by spring’s new beginnings and the liveliness of the summer. Souped-up with eye-catching finishes and artful embellishments, this crowd favorite feels fresh in its adaptability for all occasions. Thierry Rabotin’s contribution includes two versatile styles in a sandal. The Italian designer brings together contemporary details, innovative technology, and traditional craftsmanship in the must-have Britney and Bambi, both priced at $495.

Bambi is saucy in shimmering black suede with flashes of metallic gold woven into the crisscrossed vamp and accenting the sides of a buckled slingback strap. Black stitching adds elegance and a sleek look throughout. Britney in grey and gold suede takes a walk on the wild side with directional placements of mock snakeskin. Its all-black counterpart is set apart by glitzy leather trimmed in suede. The slender slingback straps on both versions are elasticized and secured with logo engraved silver-tone eyes for an instant stamp of high fashion. The Bambi and Britney mules are incredibly lightweight and feature block heels, thin outsoles that flex for ease of walkability, and V’d open toes. Each pair is cleverly fitted with full-length layers of Poron® materials for sublime comfort and high performance shock absorption. Long nights are encouraged with this breathable open cell foam technology not typically found in dressy footwear. Thierry Rabotin ups the ante with a nappa leather that lines the interiors to preserve softness and keep feet cool and dry.

Rule the day or night with transitional Bambi and Britney mule sandals. Mix up your corporate closet with the addition of a sleeveless knee-length vest dress paired with Britney at the office. Accessorize with small hoop earrings, a collar necklace, and bracelet watch for a look that’s sure to grant you a promotion. Switch to weekend mode when you play with proportions in a pair of slouchy jeans, a cropped leather biker jacket, and a tunic shirt. Aviator sunglasses and red lipstick complete this cool-girl aesthetic. Cash in your PTO with Bambi as your go-to shoe on your next vacation. The strappy upper flexes to fit neatly into your luggage. Pack along a sequined pencil skirt to wear with a silk blouse and a wide-legged jumpsuit for a cooler night. A glittery clutch will pick up the subtle sparkle in the sandal so you can live your best life in a new locale.
