Styling Tips from Cath Tyldesley and Stylist Martine Alexander

The A-Mag team headed to Hervia to get some style inspiration from former Coronation Street star Cath Tyldesley and celebrity stylist Martine Alexander at the launch of the Ipanema with Starck footwear collection.

Top Manchester bloggers and fashion-conscious Mancs came to Hervia to get a glimpse of the fabulous new footwear collection.

Guests were treated to delicious cocktails and canapes courtesy of Leoko Cre8tive as they soaked up Martine’s top styling tips. Martine said the collaboration has “taken what we wear in summer and flipped it on its head.” She encouraged us to let these laidback flip flops work as a sleek accessory and let our outfits do all the talking.

This collab sees the flip flop undergo a total overhaul: Ipanema footwear is famous for combining laidback style with a touch of glamour, so it’s no surprise that comfort and style go hand-in-hand here with a range of sleek, minimalist designs that you’ll actually want to wear (rather than just slip on when you’re poolside).

Unlike the other items on our summer wardrobe shopping list, we don’t usually think too much about finding the perfect flip flop. Thankfully, Ipanema and French designer and architect Philippe Starck have done all the thinking for us. Not only good-looking, Ipanema’s eco-conscious approach means these flip flops are made from 100% recyclable materials, as well as being super soft and lightweight.

We’re all for footwear that makes it easier to go from beach to bar, and thanks to Cath and Martine we’ve got some serious summer styling inspo to work with.

Head to Hervia (40 Spring Gardens, M2 1EN) to grab yourself a pair (or two)!
