PostAlania Belle | The White Loafer

Pared back. Post-transitional.

In 1930s Norway, US travellers came across a casual slipper worn by farmers and fishermen. They exported the look back to the US, where it was championed by Esquire magazine. The loafer was born. On some, a split strap was introduced with diamond cut-out and penny adornment. Worn by students and early hipsters to preppy perfection, the penny could also be used to make a call home.

These days it’s unlikely you’ll need that penny for a call. So our white loafer Alania Belle stays minimal, without penny and sans tassels. Post-transitional, post-seasonal – this is a style that works all year, day to night. Subtly tapered with an almond toe and finished with a tailored stitch on the heel.
