Resort ’15 Trend: Gladiator Remix

After falling out of fashion’s favor the past few seasons, the strappy Roman sandal is back on terra firma for resort ’15. Updates include audacious knee-heights at Versace, Valentino and Miu Miu. Simplified styles geared at refined holiday-makers reigned supreme at Thomas Maier. And at Balmain, traditional roping on stilettos complimented the Grecian-style draping. Overall, the trend was a retelling of classic goddess codes.
