Did you know? Fashion icon Jackie Kennedy Onassis didn’t simply wear what designers made — she also inspired them, too. During a trip to Capri, Italy, in 1960, the then-Jackie Kennedy came across a flat leather sandal that she couldn’t leave the island without. When she returned to the U.S., she took the sandals to her local cobbler in Palm Beach, Florida, where the Kennedy family had a home. The cobbler mimicked the whip-stitched sandals with a rondelle design that Kennedy loved — and this was the start of the Jack Rogers brand. The company continues to make this classic sandal in a range of colors. Jackie favored the sandals in white and was photographed wearing them during subsequent trips to Italy.
