Birkenstock - not typically a sandal you’d consider a luxury fashion statement. Well, buckle up fashionistas, because things are about to get wild.
Birkenstock 1774, the slightly cooler sister of the OG sandal, has teamed up with (drum roll please…) Valentino. Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli has created two exclusive styles, one in the iconic Valentino red, the other emblazoned with the VLTN logo, as a nod to the classic Birkenstock Arizona sandal.
Once we knew this collaboration was A Thing, we couldn’t keep it to ourselves. So, naturally, we took to our Instagram to take a public vote – would Grazia readers be rushing out to buy the Valentino Garavani x Birkenstock sandal? 52 per cent of you voted no, leaving us wondering why on earth it was such a close vote. We assume it's because you’re telling yourselves the same thing we do when we want to buy something we shouldn’t – “Maybe it’ll look better on?”.
