I never get tired of the designer collaborations that keep popping up. Each time I run across a new one I'm not necessarily surprised, but I am intrigued.

For this season, ballet shoe maker extraordinaire Repetto, the company that first put street-appropriate soles on ballet shoes for Audrey Hepburn to sport, has teamed up with James Perse. The result is three pair of simple, elegant Repetto for James Perse ballet slippers each made by hand in France. The outer material is chic canvas, which fits in perfectly with the laid back James Perse lifestyle and was designed to complement this season's James Perse styles. The insole and outsole are both leather, with canvas inner lining. The Flax color pictured here is my favorite, but they are also available in Ink (a denim-like canvas) and Black.
