French luxury brand Celine unveils the Taillat Flat Espadrilles. Named after the famous Cap Taillat beach in St. Tropez, the flat espadrilles have long been the shoe of choice amongst the stylish chic women and men who frequent the French Rivera town since the 1920s. Espadrilles are casual flat shoes that have been worn for centuries in Europe.
Made by traditional artisans in Spain where the shoe-making craft of espadrilles first originated in the 13th century, the Celine Taillat espadrilles use
traditional rope making techniques to spin jute thread into braid, curling the braided rope and hand stitching them into soles.
A lightweight cotton canvas are then chosen, either plain or stripe, to make the uppers of the flat espadrilles. An elongated front tip is added and the rope soles are finished with a leather outsole with a rubber layer on the heels. A house signature “Celine” embroidery – first introduced in the winter 2019 ready-to-wear collection – is stitched on the canvas upper for the perfect finish.
