Influencers, stylists, entertainers and editors converged on Tuesday to celebrate the first National Espadrille Day — yes, that’s a thing.
Marc Fisher Ltd. feted the crowd on the luxe rooftop at The Jeremy Hotel in West Hollywood, Calif., where attendees previewed brand-new styles featuring oversized studs, frayed woven leather, glitter and pearls, and bold suedes.
Espadrilles account for 40 percent of its total business across wholesale and e-commerce, and continues to beat year-over-year sales, according to the brand.
Styles retail from $99 to $170 on Marcfisherfootwear.com and at select department stores such as Nordstrom, Bloomingdales and Lord & Taylor.
Of course, a springtime lifestyle shoe needs some on-the-go companions. Guests left with a special Espadrille Escape kit with the brand’s favorite travel-friendly items from partners such as Stowaway Cosmetics, Forestbound, Turkish T, Lilly Pulitzer and Brahmin.
As part of Marc Fisher’s celebration, the brand hosted a sweepstakes on Marcfisherfootwear.com that began March 25 and concludes today. The winner will receive a three-night getaway to Hawaii, a travel stipend and an Espadrille Escape kit.
