Travel

There are many reasons to travel to Capri. But one of the ones you probably wouldn’t think of is footwear. So good are the strappy leather sandals you find at the family-run workshops on the island that stylist Anita Patrickson used to stock up on custom sandals every time she traveled there. With Amanu Studio, she brings her love of the made-to-measure slides, gladiators, and thongs to the States. To make sure that her West Hollywood studio re-creates the experience as closely as possible, she worked with an Italian master cobbler for months to train her team. There are ten core styles to choose from, and everything from the leather sole to the straps is totally customizable and cobbled together right on the spot. You can be in and out the door with a pair of bespoke sandals in hand (or on foot) in eight minutes. Amanu even keeps your measurements on file—smart, because you’ll be back. Advance appointments are encouraged.
