Rounding off a memorable London Fashion Week, Burberry’s runway show garnered as much attention for its front-row guests, as it did for the items spotted on the runway. Amongst the A-list crowd were models Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jourdan Dunn and singer Kylie Minogue who all made a co-ordinated statement in an unusual shoe style from the British heritage brand.
Sporting high heels in purple and yellow shades, it wasn’t the colour, nor the height of the shoe that got us talking, rather the controversial fabric choice that cushioned the sole of the heel. Featuring designs embellished with coloured lamb shearling, Burberry’s latest shoe has a fuzzy sole that seeps outwards of the shoe, for an enlarged, cushioned effect. Building upon the fuzzy designs that were debuted last season, Daniel Lee’s second Burberry collection explores new embellishments, shapes and colours for the divisive fuzzy shoe.
