​Parisian Playfulness with the Arche Drick

​Parisian Playfulness with the Arche Drick

Apr 5th 2019

Geometric shapes have found themselves carved into our favorite footwear.

Made exclusively in the Chateau region of France by a team of artisans devoted to comfort, quality, and fashion-forward aesthetics, Arche was originally founded by Pierre Robert Helaine in 1968. Modernity, simplicity, and durability have since created a tried-and-tested formula at the forefront of the brand’s identity. Their original collections arrive season after season in cutting-edge presentations of inviting color palettes, quirky details, and standout materials extracted from the latest trends. For the Spring/Summer seasons, they’ve re-crafted the essential sandal inspired by retro design lines and fashion’s ongoing obsession with minimalism. Regarded as the brand’s warm-weather icon, the Drick is handmade with French expertise and careful consideration for what women are looking for.

Appearing in three monochromatic colorways (Sand, Coclico, and Navy) each for $299, the Arche Drick updates the classic wedge sandal with off-beat elements distinguished by a breathable construction and architectural look. The brand’s signature laser-cut geometrical perforations style the water-resistant nubuck leather upper, allowing air flow to channel from the open toe through the top keep the foot cool and dry. An extended heel tab and counter zipper aid quick entry and exit, adding just a touch of contemporary flair. Padded suede footbeds cushion the underfoot with a supple texture, while the absence of lining increases flexibility and natural range of motion and reduces weight. Seated below, the shock-absorbing latex rubber sole is composed of environmentally-friendly Lactae Hevea® milk to enhance comfort, lightness, elasticity and suppleness to provide overall protection for the foot. A slender, angled heel and a traction-ready leaf outsole tread pattern finalize the unique look.

The Arche Drick flat sandal makes a statement on its own thanks to its effortlessly stylish vibe. Perfect for after-work leisure, weekend fun, and even traveling, this versatile sandal fits right into your wardrobe. Enjoy Saturday lunch with friends in cropped linen pants, a striped popover blouse, dainty jewelry, and a satchel bag with the Sand option. Or opt for a graphic T-shirt and chino shorts for a more laidback feel. It’s all in the details when you pair the Navy version with a tie-waist shirtdress, a raffia tote bag, and stud earrings for date day with your beloved partner. You can even go the sporty route in knit jogger pants, a denim jacket, and a simple top. Team up the Coclico pair with a keyhole-neck shirt, raw hem skinny jeans, and a carryall bag for some Saturday retail therapy. Switch out the jeans for your favorite pair of leggings, and spend an evening lounging on your deck for self-care Sunday.
