Jane Sews

Instagram can be quite a wonderful thing; for example, stumbling across some of the most beautifully-crafted sandals I have ever seen in my life. Jane Sews is a Durban-based label in South Africa that focuses on embracing everything artisan. From just a quick glimpse lingering gaze, I could see that Amy from Jane Sews really focuses on the finest of construction to ensure good quality that you can play and frolic in for years to come. And thanks to the wonderful timelessness of Jane Sew’s items, you can be sure to be right on trend for a long while yet.

I love the way Jane Sews has a vintage, eclectic feel, but at the same time keeps it simple and feminine. The online shop adds to this flowing femininity that each of the Jane Sew’s items epitomises.

Seeing as it’s turning into Spring in South Africa, Jane Sews has recently released their Spring/Summer collection for 2013. Here are a few peeks at their latest look book…

Do you see what I mean?! Such whimsically classic pieces, with a clean, simplistic feel- perfect for picnicing amongst the freshly-bloomed flowers of Spring. Or, if you’re up in the Northern Hemisphere- don’t fret- you too, can also purchase these gorgeous pieces through their international shipping. You might have to wait until Spring 2014 to wear one of these lovelies, but at least that’ll give you something to look forward to during those long, winter days. Personally though, I’d just throw on a pair of thick, wooly tights and team one of these dresses with a long knitted cardigan and…Voilá!

I do believe even these sandals could be teamed with thick tights and still look amazing…

This is the Mila sandal and isn’t she just beautiful? They’re handmade from leather, and even lined in leather! And that little buckle there, that’s an antique! You can even choose between the colour block style or the natural style; I want both! And at R699 (around 55pounds), they’re a great investment.


They also have the Margo sandal- hello peep toe! These are perfect for summer and they would go with anything. I love the rich-chocolate colour and I’m already imagining what colour nail polish they’d look pretty with.

Good, strong footwear is so important. I can’t be doing with buying a new pair of sandals every few months. I want something that will last and never dwindle to the bottom of the fashion pile. I think we all know that Jane Sew’s new sandal collection is going to be whipped off the shelves in no time. Be sure to go here and pre-order your pair today. They will start shipping from the 15th of September and I’m guessing they’ll be pretty busy!
