The defining wedge look of the season has been honed to perfection by Spanish footwear label Paloma Barceló, whose delightful, gently-sloping wedge sandals have just gone on sale for high summer over at Net-a-Porter:

Available in a small run of stylish, neutral colours, the shoes are made from real soft suede with a woven raffia section underneath. What I like best about these shoes is the curved straps which echo the season's strappy evening shoes perfectly, re-working them for a summer daytime look that will be simply indispensable whether you're planning on spending summer in the city or elsewhere in sunnier climes.

My favourite shoe from this small but perfectly-formed collection has to be the pale tan, as it fits in so neatly with the season's barely-there obsession (as well as almost everything in my wardrobe!) But there are also some gorgeous colourful editions available at the same price in tangerine orange and monochrome zebra print.
