Winters and confinements follow one another leaving us with a deep desire to feel good without slippers . To hang out at home, have dinner or tread the Parisian cobblestones, the good old people slippers are making a comeback and are inviting themselves in the rooms of fashionistas as well as on the most cutting-edge fashion shows (Dior Homme, Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler, Marni, Dolce & Gabbana…), in ever more sophisticated versions which revisit traditions with mischief.
Furlane Venetian, papi slippers, boots, coats, fluffy ballerina, slippers or mules palace: the inspired slipper and aristocratise. A tour of the labels that have made the tatane the ultimate fashion accessory to own.
Charentaise style: La Charentaise TCHA
His version of the slipper: a Charentaise made in France, handcrafted in a workshop in Angoulême using the ancestral “ sewn-back ” technique, for incredible comfort. All in vibrant colors, in a lined version or not, with a straight cut, in leather or wool, to wear inside and out.
Our favorites: while waiting for the summer models in light leather, we fall for the winter charentaise lined in suede (135 €), in lined felt (100 €), the very chic version in black nappa leather lined in skin burgundy lambswool (€ 175) or the minimum in blue or sunny yellow felt (€ 100).
