Bégum’s new arrivals
Always a favourite with elegant women of Paris, New York, and Rome, the brand is offering new moccasins for this summer and unique ankle boots for the autumn.
Litchi, Flocon, Cheyenne, followed by Georgina, Pimlico, and Cambridge: creations are bustling at Bégum, the favourite boutique of Parisian women who love top-quality French craftsmanship. “Our shoes are designed by women for women: they must be beautiful, elegant, and very comfortable,” smiles Héloïse Wirth, director of a store and workshop that long produced for Maison Chanel. Indeed, how can one resist Flocon, a classic of the brand, made of velvet goatskin bordered with lambskin, reissued in multiple colours. So, don’t hesitate to order Flocon in your favourite colour: the holidays are approaching, and customization requires 15 days! Other models that easily slip on and off and wear barefoot, are Litchi, a new pointed-toe and two-tone moccasin, and Cheyenne, a shoe that slips on like a glove, made without reinforcements or lining, elegant with its leather sole, but worn like an espadrille. A must-have for the summer!
Once summer is over, Bégum decides to brighten up our autumn with the vibrant colours of Georgina, an adorable square-toed buckle shoe, adorned with a small heel. Otherwise, it will be the new Pimlico ankle boot, named after the famous London neighbourhood, impossible to miss with its colourful elastic band on the side.
Finally, the most girly Parisian women will favour the Cambridge, a model that takes the famous Oxford shoe of the brand and adds a 6.5 cm heel and covered with blue glitter. Autumn will be glamour or it won’t be!
