raffia-sandals.pngStuart Weitzman's shoes are still a bit of a rarity in the UK but the styles we do have on this side of the pond are well-chosen and well worth getting excited about! Selfridges has a nice little collection in at the moment and the sun-worshippers among us are particuarly keen on this all-over raffia style, known as 'Alex'. Raffia is huge for next season, and you'll find similar styles at Chloe, Ferragamo and Burberry Prorsum.

This wedge-style shoe in natural raffia is wardrobe dynamite for summer 2012 as it will go with so much of the season's clothing offer. Unfortunately for those on a budget it's also £300, but this is what we'd expect from the footwear master who regularly designs celebrity shoes for the Oscars.

If you love the raffia/basket/woven look however, you'll be able to source this all over the high street: check out Kurt Geiger, Dorothy Perkins and Karen Millen for some equally lovely but more wallet-friendly alternatives if you're ready to get set for summer now!
