Pair SS21 With Denim To Reinvent Everyday Looks


ZOU XOU May Journal - Wide Leg Jeans.jpg

For those who enjoy playing with shape and form through dressing, look to the Eugenia. Slim and sleek in nature, the Eugenia is a pro at balancing voluminous clothing pieces like wide-leg bottoms and oversized dresses. For a casual yet, elevated look, pair your favorite wide-leg jeans with your go-to fitted top or tee and the Eugenia flat. 

A modern interpretation of the mary jane flat, the Eugenia is a classic at heart. Remixed with a square toe, angular topline, and oval-shaped heel, this flat is a great choice for lovers of classics who appreciate thoughtful design, and versatile pieces that will never go out of style. 

Neutral lovers with a closet full of minimalist pieces, brighten your wardrobe with a pop of color with Apio or Denim. Color lovers with a wardrobe full of color and prints, look to Marfil and Dessert to add a fresh feeling for Spring that will balance even the boldest outfits.


ZOU XOU May Journal - Bootcut Jeans.jpg

Casually cool dressers who opt for functionality over trends and never turn down a spontaneous outing, look to the Pileta sport slide. A simple silhouette packed with style, the Pileta is the ultimate shoe to transform formal and sexy pieces into wearable looks for every day. For those who opt for looser-fitting bottoms like bootcut jeans, pair them with a fitted top, your favorite tee, or a silky tank and the Pileta slide for an enviable look. 

Thoughtfully designed with comfort in mind, the Pileta is made for bike rides, city strolls and even can handle some mud, sand, and water thanks to its chunky rubber sole. Take the worry out of picking out a pair of shoes for a summer day packed with events, and throw on the Pileta with confidence it can handle it all, comfortably. 

For minimalists, look to Marfil for a sleek streamlined fit. Eclectic dressers, look to Black Croc to add some texture to any look. Pattern lovers opt for a similar style, the Quinta woven slide in Black/Marfil or Dessert/Marfil.


ZOU XOU May Journal - Straight Jeans.jpg

No-nonsense dressers who feel the best in their “uniform” yet, like to keep things interesting look to the Rio. The Rio sandal is ideal for summer due to its bareness, comfort, and innovative design details. Pair your best-fitting straight-leg jeans with your preferred tee, button-up, or tank and the Rio for an instantly put-together chill look, no second thought needed. 

Constructed entirely from surplus leather scraps collected from the cutting room floor, the Rio thong sandal features a square toe, croc-embossed leather link chain detail, and toe ring strap for a sleek and naked feel. The Rio is anything but boring and spices up even the simplest of looks.

Build your summer sandal repertoire with classic colors like Black or Hazelnut or expand your collection with bolder color combinations like Kiwi/Multi or Terracotta/Multi
