“It Began as a Love Affair…”

“Respoke began as a love affair. Nothing scandalous or naughty, just a simple love affair with a shoe which, like so many things Spanish, seemed a perfect marriage of style and function, the espadrille,“ explained founder and best-selling author Michael Tonello.

Respoke, newly opened at 41 Straight Wharf, is a shopping experience offering iconic designer silk repurposed into a curated collection of one-of-a-kind products featuring hand-crafted Spanish made espadrilles. Tonello’s memoir, Bringing Home the Birkin, recounts the highlights of his years as a reseller of all things Hermès. His love affair with espadrilles began shortly after he settled in Barcelona and it didn’t take long for him to reimagine his favorite new footwear crafted with luxurious silk rather than utilitarian cotton twill.
