This is the time of year when we’re usually looking at buying resort wear, or clothes for other kinds of holidays. Luckily, living in Singapore we still get to be by the sea or the pool, even if it’s in our current little bubble. As always, flowy styles and sandals are the order of the day here, so we think it’s still time to upgrade your “looking cool” gear, even if you’re not getting on a plane. And never underestimate the importance of practical, comfy sandals!
Fly Flot Sandals
Offering all-round comfort and style, these sandals in Singapore are also made with sustainable and environmentally friendly development (including a solar-energy powered factory in Italy). This was the first European brand to make shoes with ecological waterblown polyurethane foam. Today, you’ll find items in the catalogue made from recycled PET, natural animal and vegetable fibrous materials.
