Espadrilles, €580, Valentino, Brown Thomas, D2

This is not a drill; it's an espadrille - the summer shoe that's being boldly re-imagined all over the fashosphere this season. Of course we didn't need Anna Wintour to sanction the humble espadrille, we've always been fans.

And not just fair-weather fans, either; we've worn the 'drilles in rain and shine, thanks to the imprudent Irish weather. This season the classic Chanel espadrilles come in python and metallic, while all over the high street there's a wealth of patterns and styles, but it is this studded, leather pair by Valentino that we really covet. Who knew a French peasant shoe could look so damn badass?
