SOAK SHOUT OUT! Slip Into These Sleek Slides & Flip-Off Those Flip-Flops Forever!







GOSSIP GIRL BFF & NY handbag designer MICHELLE VALE is launching the shoe every woman is pining for this summer. SOAK was founded in 2014 with former Fashion Editor ELENA CORSANO to create a stylish alternative for what-to-slip-on when the stilettos slide off!

SOAKs are perfectly practical. They’ll get you to yoga and out for brunch in comfort and style while chic enough to work in, paired with a pencil skirt, a blouse and blazer. They’re sleek and innovative slides, created with custom technology, actual arch support for work/play footwear featuring eco-friendly comfort, and non-ironic vegan style! Designed here in New York City and crafted in Kennebunk, Maine, SOAK sandals are leading the way for SOAK rain boots, flats, eyewear and more — for the best of both worlds.

GIVE SOAK A KICK! Get a pair of SOAK sandals from the very first production run and receive them — in the color selection of your choice — along with a durable carry pouch! The SOAK KICKSTART CAMPAIGN is in the home stretch so you’ll have to be quick! With a week to go they’ve gathered $20,000 and parted with 300 pairs already — just to show you how much the ladies are loving them!

I told Cosmo China “Fashion should be original, both a fun and very enjoyable thing.”

eric-daman-cosmo-china-june-2014 To find your own signature style is to embrace fashion in the best way. Fashion is meant to be fun and enjoyed. Its ok to take risks and be inventive along the way. It’s the key to finding your own true style. Shop for your shape. Respect who you are, how you are built, and work with your best assets. Learn to accept them, maximize them, and minimize the rest.”

I told New Zealand’s @coupdemain Magazine “Working on ‘Sex And The City’ was like earning a PHD in costume design…”

Costume designer Eric Daman in the fitting room of 'The Carrie Diaries' in New York City.“Patricia Field pushed the boundaries of style on television with a certain level of embellishment that brought to life a portrayal of character that can only happen through clothing, while Sarah Jessica Parker was a stickler for proper fit, without which a petite actor can be easily gobbled up by her garments.”
