Spring High Tea with Yosi Samra

A few weeks back, I was invited to an afternoon of high tea and shoes… How can I decline? New York brand, Yosi Samra, gathered a select few on-the-go women from Manila and unveiled their lovely new Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Loved how intimate the event was, spent with industry friends, delicious tea, tea sandwiches, scones, and jam. We also got to meet the people behind the local franchise. Apparently, Yosi Samra is a name of a person, particularly the founder of the fold-up ballet flat movement. Aside from being a second-generation shoe designer, Yosi Samra also had a stint as a bouncer in a club in NYC. From that point-of-view, he saw how women would always sport their sky-high heels, and he’d feel for some of the ladies whose legs just couldn’t take anymore of the elevated stress. This instance sparked the idea of creating fold-up flats that can fit in the bags and purses of women for when foot discomfort is at its peak. Ladies, you know what I mean!

The thing about these fold-up flats is that there are a variety of styles, colors, patterns, and textures to choose from! Yup! Style isn’t sacrificed here for comfort. Their new S/S 2015 collection screams freshness, fit for every personality! From ombre patent leather fabrics, watercolor florals, sporty neoprenes, lace, studs, metallic snake prints, and more! Aside from closed ballet flats, they also have open-toed, and slip-on sandals. Below are some photos from the afternoon, as well as some their new designs.

Wow. Even Hollywood celebs have been joining the fold-up flats movement! May your legs and feet forever be free from stress, and keep walking on sunshine in those fabulous flats!
