Draper James teamed up with M.Gemi to create a collection of gorgeous sandals just in time for iced-tea-sipping weather
If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect spring shoe, look no further — Reese Witherspoon just created it for you. Draper James, Witherspoon’s Southern-charm lifestyle brand, teamed up with popular Italian luxury footwear label M.Gemi to create a gorgeous collection of sandals just in time for iced-tea-sipping weather.
The collection features three of M.Gemi’s previously sold-out sandals styles — The Risata, The Pilone, and The Treccia — with a new, playful upgrade in some of the summer’s most iconic prints and colors. The Pilone classic block-heeled sandals are one of M.Gemi’s most popular styles, having racked up a 1,600-person waitlist in the past.
“We wanted to work with a brand that appreciates luxury and attention to detail the way we do at M.Gemi,” Cheryl Kaplan, co-founder and president of M.Gemi told PEOPLE. “Bringing to life the design aesthetic of each of our brands, the new Draper James x M.Gemi collection showcases the Southern charm of Reese’s brand combined with the luxury Italian design expertise of M.Gemi.”
We have a feeling these patio-weather-ready sandals will sell fast, especially since the previous versions of them were such a hit. You can shop the collection at both Draper James and M.Gemi, so if your size is sold out on one, there’s still a chance it’s available on the other! Keep scrolling to see just why we’re predicting these will be spring’s hottest shoes.
Whether you’re trekking through a city on vacation or attending a summer wedding, these modern block-heeled sandals are delicate but supportive enough to carry you through it all — and their massive waitlist proves it. Bonus, they won’t sink into the grass!
With a shorter, thicker block heel, The Risata is similar to the best-selling Pilone shoe, but now comes in classic summer prints like gingham and chambray. It’s the perfect ease into the world of heels and, according to M.Gemi’s website, even flats devotees rave about the wearability of these heels.
