The Ipanema with STARCK footwear line is a collaborative effort between designer Philippe Starck and shoe company Ipanema to offer an organic and minimalistic line of strap sandals that offer the bare necessities for a comfortable wear. With this in mind, the shoes are free from embellishments or added detailing relying only on straps needed for support. The minimalism to the shoes offers a refined and stylishly contrasting take on many popular mainstream fashions.
The sandals are simple in aesthetic, with the focus being on comfort and wear more than style. The shoes are made from cushioned soles and complete with subtle straps only needed where the foot needs support such as around the toe, heel or mid-foot. While there are no details to the shoes, they come in a variety of colorways to add an element of interest to the footwear.
