  • Christina Martini’s Joy List

    Born in Corfu, Christina Martini was working for Louis Vuitton before she answered our summer-box siren call for beautiful, simple handmade leather sandals. Today, Ancient Greek Sandals are a staple for women across the globe. Here, the savvy designer shares her style, home and beauty treasures.
