Espadrilles are definitely the perfect summer shoes. Nothing is more comfortable than the cotton slippers with the bast fibre soles – the striking characteristic of the espadrilles. But sadly summer is nearly coming to an end and our favouite shoes will have to wait in the closet until the next season. Well, not anymore!
LIKA MIMIKA is your chance to wear espadrilles from now on all over the year. Made out of genuine leather these shoes come in a dozen of colours and looks. Besides the classical flat slipper and a plateau edition the shoes are also available as brogues and sandals. And everyone who is not that much into „wearing animals“, will make the feet happy with LIKA MIMIKA´s vegan line MALA.
Right after its start the small brand expanded quickly and became one of the most influential and beloved shoe brands in the German fashion scene and, of course, the German fashion blogosphere. But what not many people do know: LIKA MIMIKA´s origins lay in the heart of Frankfurt. Here Lisa Leipziger and Marijana Condic created their idea of a classical and timeless design with a colourful twist. LIKA MIMIKA is unique and brings the espadrilles back to its tradition. Each pair is manufactured by hand in Spain and only high quality materials, like lamb leather, Nappa leather or Rindhide are used. Moreover the two founders focus strongly on sustainability. So not only the used materials but also the steps of the production focus on an enviromentally compatible process.
Curious now? Then come and visit the LIKA MIMIKA flagship store in the Berliner Straße in Frankfurt – the only one in Germany so far. A sales area of 40qm wants to be explored as much as the wide range of LIKA MIMIKA shoes. Inspired by the idea of Townhouses as they can be found in cities like London, New York and Tokio the store also includes the LIKA MIMIKA office and the stock area. The design of the store is related to the great era of the 50s. The wall color is based on the typical nude tone of the brand´s packaging, whereas the furniture comes from the famous Frankfurt design agency „E15“. Moreover also here lays a great focus on the usage of sustainable materials.
So, feel free to have a seat on the comfortable dark green sofa and try each pair that strikes your eye. Since the team of LIKA MIMIKA loves shoes as much as we do, they know that it takes time to find the perfect pair. Here it´s not about fast fashion, it´s about the personal experience of great design, colourful looks and high quality.
