Designer To Know: Valia Gabriel

As we’re coming up on summer, I feel like we’re always on the hunt for the perfect pair of sandals to get us through the season. Luckily, Sarah recently discovered designer Valia Gabriel and her perfectly minimalistic, earthy footwear.

Handmade in Greece, Gabriel started making her signature sandals in 2011, inspired by her summers spent in the Greek Isles and Ancient Greek designs. To add to the warm-weather appeal, model Alessandra Ambrosio is a fan – and who are we to argue with that? Below, you’ll find Sarah’s favorites and where to get them.
