Architect and designer Philippe Starck created a collection of sleek minimalist sandals for Brazilian sandal brand Ipanema that bare an uncanny resemblance to Philip Lim’s style, which recently debuted on the runway at New York Fashion Week.
While Lim’s avant-garde shoe is a sock-sandal hybrid, Ipanema’s polished rubber version differs slightly, offering a more simplistic design to the open-toe style. The sleek and modern Thing U sandal, which retails for $35, also comes in a variety of different colorways, including metallic and several shades of orange.
