Inspired by shoe forms and intricate details found in Baily's impressive archive, an elegant new toe shape and fine leather cut work are the graceful hallmarks of this modern collection for Spring/Summer 2013.
This season, the archive spotlight falls on a new blunt toe shape from 1961 that forms the basis of the sophisticated Butterfly shoe collection, offering flats to pumps in a variety of heel heights. Beautifully detailed uppers from the 1930s, characterised by the fine ribbon detail of cut leather work, have been devotedly embraced throughout the collection.
Merging these concepts, the result is a highly stylised collection of contrasting positive and negative layers, straight lines and curves, colour blocking, layering and sublime material mixes.
