British luxury brand Burberry is out of step with fashion trends. Footwearnews.com experts came to this conclusion after discovering that the latest Burberry spring-summer 2024 collection does not include the most current shoe style for next spring, that is, ballet flats.
The brand's collection was showcased on Monday at London Fashion Week. It is noted that creative director Daniel Lee, in the second season of work on the collection of the British luxury brand, continued to follow his own creative rhythm. He designed the collection based on the traditional aesthetic codes of Burberry, and found new original solutions. The collection, according to the show notes, was “an exploration of lightness, sensuality, beauty and elegance.”
The shoe line included classic loafers with a square toe, sandals with thin straps that wrapped around the shin in several rows, with floral motifs, as well as unusually shaped sandals with a toe strap and eye-catching fasteners on wide straps. The square shape of the nose also prevailed in men's shoe models.
Both Burberry's Lee and Proenza Schouler's Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are betting that shoe aficionados will want more of these weird, yet uniquely appealing shapes this spring.
