The Reinvented Classic Courtesy of Thierry Rabotin

Aug 14th 2018

What girl doesn’t love the culture of the ballet? From the dreamy tulle skirts that make us feel like princesses to the romantic music that fills spaces with heavenly sound, ballet is an emotional experience. Classical ballet originated in Renaissance Italy and quickly established itself as an art form through graceful choreography and its signature pointe shoe. Its global influence eventually translated over into the fashion realm, giving us the ballet/ballerina flat! The ballet flat was reinvented for the everyday woman, thus becoming a staple shoe in her closet. It’s defined by a sleek design and feminine appeal. It can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion and is appropriate for all age groups. Last season, we brought you an irresistible take on the silhouette from our most popular Italian-based designer, Thierry Rabotin.

Thierry Rabotin’s Grace, a simple and elegant shoe, was originally launched in eight unique shades and finishes. Now the brand is reprising Grace in a brand new kitty print that we just can’t keep our hands off of! Thierry Rabotin’s Kitty Red Grace is available exclusively at Hanig’s. It has been updated with a multicolored dot print that perks up any look in any season with a youthful quirkiness--and at just $460, it’s a no-brainer in the budget department. The Grace flat was designed with ease in mind. The effortless on and off style is achieved by a set of three elasticized triangles cleverly placed at the center of the vamp. The high cut of the throat comfortably secures the foot and maximizes natural wearability when walking. Its flexible outsole stabilizes the upper with the support of a pancake heel to keep you looking stylish and feeling good from day to night.Thierry Rabotin’s kitty print Grace ballerina flat offers even more versatility than the color options you collected at the first launch. The mix of lighthearted hues can be matched with anything in your closet. Paint the town red in a sleeveless trapeze dress paired with a small clutch bag on Saturday night with your sweetheart. You’ll stun them the entire evening with your girlish charm over cocktails and tapas. Go simple on a day of running errands when you team this new print with a velvet mini skirt and graphic T-shirt. No matter how you switch it up, Thierry Rabotin’s Grace adds character and whimsy to your wardrobe, lifting your mood each time that you wear them!
