Soludos hit the ground running in 2010 with Opening Ceremony, J.Crew, and more collabs, but now the colorful espadrille brand is expanding into other beach essentials to classic totes and kikoy wraps.
In case you don't speak Swahili, the soft cotton kikoy is the traditional East African version of a sarong, and it can also function as towel for lying out and drying off after dips in the ocean. It's a solid beach hack if we've ever seen one. Those retail for $45 to 55 and beach totes are $55 to $75. Scope a selection of the first collection after the jump and shop them here.
