Hermès has recently unveiled brand new styles of their beloved Oran sandal, and you might be able to find some of them popping up on their online store from time to time. Aside from the furry-looking ones in fluffy wool, these 3 styles are some of the latest options to add to your ever-growing collection. Yes, they are so much more than the usual ‘H’ colour update that happens from season to season, because these are newly printed versions where the upper and insole come in a truly eye-catching (and unique) motif.
Adapted from the French luxury house’s extensive collection of scarves, you might find them familiar if you’re a collector as well. From the top, the graffiti-like Peinture Fraiche returns in a black-and-white combination, while the Brides de Gala en Desired is offered in 2 different colourways, Mutlicolore Rose and Mutlicolore Noir. Some of you might find the prints confusing in pictures, but they actually make sense when you slip your feet in, giving you little peeks of the insole whenever you head out and about.
Priced slightly higher than the classic counterparts, the printed Oran sandals are retailing at SGD1100 each, with sizes ranging from 35 to 41 so everyone can get in on the action. Fancy something different from the plain colours you’re all too familiar with? This would be it.
