Cross Roads



d.cosandalsSmart design marked by precocious simplicity—it's a signature aesthetic that was (and is) like a vision of the future circa 1971. While this could describe most facets of Scandinavian design, it particularly suits d. co Copenhagen, a 10-year-old label that recently made a quiet U.S. debut with the ultra-modern and ultra-comfy T-Bar sandal.

Founded by Søren D. Petersen, a designer who's been a powerful figure in the Copenhagen fashion and retail scene since the 1980s, the homegrown label keeps its aim simple and its styles edgy. Petersen's T-Bar sandal personifies the mission, with its supple leather strapping and solid rubber soles—a practical design combo that earns extra-credit with an ever-expanding range of color options. Available stateside in metallic silver, black, and white, the label will also be introducing extreme neons in seasons to come—something to keep in mind for the future and beyond.

The T-Bar Sandal, $140, is available in New York City at No. 6, 6 Centre Market Place; 212-226-5759. For more information, go to www.dicocopenhagen.dk.
