Bonne Maison, home sweet home for your heels and toes!

Monday, September 16th, 2013

Ped fans, it has been quite a while since I’ve gotten swept away by a new line! But off my heart went when I discovered Bonne Maison at the Paris Accessories show last March! Truly, love at first sight!

French for “good home,” Bonne Maison offers socks that give your toes a beautiful place to live! Using the finest Egyptian cotton, spun and dyed in Italy, Bonne Maison creates the loveliest patterns to liven up your legs, all produced in a small family-owned factory in France. Here are a couple photos to give you an idea of their headquarters:

Ready to see the textile wizardry worked by these machines? Get ready to ooh and aah!

The way to get any day off to a good start is to put on Bonne Maison’s Colorful Bird socks. Talk about an instant pick-me-up!

Perhaps you’re more inclined toward geometric rather than representative patterns? Check out these sweet Peas socks:

Bold and fun, these dot-a-rific socks are easy to wear with almost anything!

“Flowers, give me flowers,” you say? Done and in the prettiest way:

The pattern and colors of these Autumn Flower Knee Highs are soooooo luscious! (Don’t be surprised when you find yourself building outfits around your socks!)

Ped fans, you know how much we love a good stripe! Bonne Maison clearly has our number:

Bonne Maison calls these Calm Stripe socks, and although they’re understated and soothing, they still have just the right zest! We adore the contrasting toe, heel, and top band!

We’ve saved our favorite pattern for last. Who can resist the charm of Bonne Maison’s Rabbit Knee High?

Every time we look at the tiny bunnies hopping amid the flowers, we go weak in the knees! Sweet for your feet, indeed!

Such soulful homes for your deserving soles! You may find yourself living in beautiful Bonne Maison.

(Yes, we DO have the fantastic Diamond Socks pictured above—now you just need some lemons to accessorize…)

(As long as we’re making parenthetical statements, you still have a couple days left to snag this week’s Sweet Treat, the chic and edgy Coclico Tecla! Just click “be sweet to your feet” at the bottom of the box on the left of most Ped pages to land at the Tecla with the discount code that will bring 20% off at checkout!)

Sock it to me!

Have you noticed? For the past few years, designers have been showing sandals with socks on the runway. We admit, at first, we thought it was a little weird, but the look has grown on us. The spirit is retro, fun, and funky! However, it all comes down to pairing the right sock with the right sandal.

A great place to start is with Antipast’s picnic of summer socks, which we just unpacked at the Ped warehouse! Whether you wear these Japanese treats with closed-toe shoes or walk the cutting edge by synching them with heeled sandals, Antipast’s socks are guaranteed to bring smiles wherever you go!

An argyle sock defines “classic,” but, of course, Antipast’s Emiko and Junko give it a unique spin, mixing up the colors by adding a contrasting border at the top:

Feeling bold? Why not take the Antipast Cross Diamond Sock in blue in a decidedly un-classic direction by wearing it with the Vialis Arabelle? Dynamite!

Want to wear a flirty skirt with a taller sock? We’re crazy about Antipast’s Monet Knee High!

If you really want to make an impression (sorry, we couldn’t resist), imagine pairing the blue version with Fiorentini + Baker’s Floss slingback peep toe:

Antipast has so much fun playing with whimsical patterns, and this season, one of the juiciest jazzes up the  Citrus Socks:

Combine this sweet sock in black with Accessoire’s Tamba, though, and it takes a turn towards vintage chic:

As every Ped fan knows we have a thing for striped socks! So of course, we’re over the moon for Antipast’s Railroad Over The Knee:

Want to make sure everyone remembers you (and leave people with their jaws on the ground)? Then consider taking the sexy-schoolgirl look to the extreme by pairing the Railroad in red with the Argila Allie.

Like the idea but prefer to scale it back a notch? Go for the Railroad in trouser length.

We realize these looks aren’t for everyone, but if you have the arty verve to put them into action, they’re sure to turn heads! And let’s face it, just thinking about the possibilities makes getting dressed much more fun! There are plenty more Antipast styles to spark your imagination over at the main Ped site! So get psyched about socks!

(By the way, the Sweet treat this week is really, really, really sweet: Fiorentini + Baker’s Emma Boot! Click “be sweet to your feet” in the upper right corner of any Ped page to land at the Emma with the code that will bring a sugary 20% off at checkout! Mmmmmm, now that’s tasty!)

Increase your socks appeal with Antipast!

Although most of Ped’s shoes are comfortable worn barefoot, it’s fun to spice things up (or warm things up) with a great pair of socks! And for our money, the cutest and most comfortable socks in the world(!) are designed by a Japanese mother and daughter team, Emiko and Junko, the geniuses behind Antipast. What a sense of whimsy they bring to their work! The latest craze on the catwalk is the sock-with-sandal look, so it’s the perfect time to add a little ‘zazz to your summer footwear with Antipast’s dazzling designs. We just got in our latest shipment, and here are a few of the new treats from our wonderful friends in Japan:

Everybody at Ped HQ bursts into a smile whenever we send out a pair of these Mod Flower socks. They are like a sunny day for your feet! I especially like how the profusion of flowers on the foot moves into stripes heading up your ankle to a little ruffle at the top. (If you like a longer sock, we also have these in an over-the-knee version—super sweet with a short skirt!)

These soft charmers are simply too cute! Beneath a flower-filled sky, a be-ribboned cat chases a little fish up sparkly stairs that rise as they go around your foot. Want to start a conversation with someone who’s caught your eye? Just flash these Cat Street socks, and he or she will be putty in your palm!

Nothing goes with summer more than a seaside vacation! Why not send your feet on one in these ocean-inspired Mermaid Knee-His? Swimming with starfish, undersea plants, and other creatures, they are endlessly entertaining and softer than sand. Prefer an ankle sock? Lucky you–Ped has these  Mermaids in trouser-length, too.

So, pull on a pair of Antipast and go knock their socks off!
