There's something to be said for keeping things simple. When it comes to your wardrobe for any time of year, it's nice to know you've got a stash of high-quality, timeless styles waiting to be worn year after year, so you don't have to worry about rushing out to revamp your closet with each change of season. And in the warmer months, nothing is more essential than a pair of sleek, wear-with-anything sandals for skipping around town or lounging poolside on sunny summer days. Enter the fresh, forever-chic styles from the Cuyana x AMANU collab — with classic silhouettes and colors, they're practically the only pair you'll need this summer (and for several summers to come).
What happens when two female-founded fashion brands dedicated to creating only the very best (so you can consume less) come together on a project? If said brands are high-quality label Cuyana and celebrity stylist-created custom sandal brand AMANU, the answer is some seriously stylish shoes — and they're officially available just in time for your summer wardrobe shopping.
The Cuyana x AMANU sandal collection dropped on April 19 with the launch of the design duo's first of two sandal collabs, a sleek double-strapped pair simply dubbed Style 06. It's now available on both brand's websites as well as in Cuyana's Pacific Palisades, California and New York City Flagship brick-and-mortar stores from April 19 to May 12 and May 22 to June 16, respectively. It's the first time AMANU shoes have been up for grabs online and outside of its appointment-based LA showroom, so consider this your best chance to get your hands on the incredibly well-crafted shoes.
While you'll have to wait until May to see and shop the collection's second silhouette, go ahead and get your hands on the debut style now. The simple style, which features a 100-percent calf leather construction, is available in five different color ways and ranges in price from $275 to $295, depending on whether you opt for the sleek vegetable tanned leather or an embossed leather iteration.
The cut-to-order sandals' structural double-strap silhouette is classic enough to be worn season after season (so it's well worth investing in), but still feels totally of-the-moment thanks to the current rise in popularity of toe-strap styles. Snag it in cognac or black leather for a minimalist vibe that's versatile enough for nearly any occasion, or opt for a croc or python-embossed pair to provide even the simplest summer outfits with interest.
The idea behind the brand's collaboration is to provide women with effortlessly stylish shoes that'll stand the test of time — and the duo's debut pair certainly seems to fit the bill. Keep scrolling to shop all five sandals you'll be sure to wear for years to come, and stay tuned for Style 07 to drop shortly (you'll probably want that pair, too).
