These are socks like you’ve never seen before. No really. I’m sure you’ve heard it before (we did post about them earlier this year) but they’re just so special.
Founder of Cornaert Socks, Clara Cornaert, has previously worked for esteemed fashion houses such as Isabel Marant and Maison Martin Margiela, bringing that same magic to her creation of the world’s most perfect socks.
Cornaert’s new collection of socks is aptly titled Avant Garde, featuring grids, shapes and lines worthy of a gallery wall. These are the socks that go with everything, and simultaneously make every outfit stand out. Cornaert socks are produced in France, aiming to create sustainable and environmentally friendly fashion.
The Jeux De Plage set of socks is dedicated to women, with each model named after a travelling destination, including a postcard in the packaging. These are the socks you would wear when running away to a seaside town, or the sort of socks you would give as a gift to a physicist. Beautiful and intelligent, these socks make you want to point your toes and do ballet, keeping them perfect and pristine.
Cornaert subvert normal ideas about accessories, turning something disposable into a treasured possession.
