​Wish List Alert: Milka and the Slipper Trend

​Wish List Alert: Milka and the Slipper Trend

Sep 19th 2018

Fashion is getting increasingly cozier.

From athleisure to even “bathleisure,” the fashion savvy are craving pieces that make them feel comfortable no matter the setting, and they’ll take inspiration from anywhere to achieve the look. Hitting the style world now is an emphasis on the bedroom aesthetic. Re-purposing and integrating intimate items into one’s weekly rotation is a mark of a true fashionista right now. The elite are wearing pajama style shirts that hang loose on the body, silk slip dresses trimmed in lace, and fluffy headbands that make one look as if they just rolled out of bed. Consequently, the slipper has made a comeback in a huge way! Slip-ons like mules and loafers have nearly completely replaced high-heeled shoes on the runways. Designers are stating their claim to the lazy movement with minimalist designs, ornate patterns, and exquisite materials, thus making the slipper the new conversation starter. For all of you gals who can’t bear to stand in heels, we’ve got the new understated statement slipper right here at Hanig’s.

Thierry Rabotin’s Milka shoe is a must-have addition to your closet.

It comes in timeless black suede and is half ballet flat, half slipper, and all chic. Constructed of fine Italian suede, this flat is assembled using the designer’s iconic sacchetto technique to create a lightweight body and streamlined fit. Attributes include a sophisticated pointed toe and an open throat that gives it a vintage spirit. The cuffed topline folds down for a subtle effect. You’ll love that the signature rubber sole is supported by a pancake heel and flexes naturally with every step. The simplistic construction makes it a practical option for those who desire the versatility that comes from an unfussy design. Milka is perfect for a myriad of occasions and goes well with the hottest trends of the year. We love teaming this flat with a printed, asymmetrical shirt and cropped jeans. A bucket bag slung over the shoulder completes the look for an afternoon of chatting with friends. Embrace a full-on leisure look with the cuff folded up, an oversized sweater, and stirrup leggings during an evening of self-care lounging around your apartment. It’s even appropriate for the office. End the week with casual Friday wearing an embroidered duster jacket, camisole, and slimming pants at your desk. Pull on Thierry Rabotin’s modern take on a traditional slipper with the Milka ballet flat and get into the coziest trend of the decade with just about any outfit.
