Burberry Prorsum Painted Textured-Leather Ankle Boots: In Full Bloomsbury

Burberry Prorsum Painted Textured-Leather Ankle Boots

Seasons seem to meld together these days. Florals in fall? Why not? Burberry blooms in delicate shades of violet and blue along these off-white booties with the hand painting creating an almost watercolor effect. The style fits in seamlessly with the autumn collection’s inspiration – the Bloomsbury Group, a set of writers and artists who lived in London’s very own Bloomsbury. According to Christopher Bailey, “walls, furniture, fabric, anything that moved, they painted it!”

I love how the whimsicality of the flowers turns into a perfect storm of loveliness when paired with a peep toe and slouchy fit. They possess the subtlest hint of childishness that tickles the senses, yet the wooden sole provides grounding for all the fun, bringing up the sophistication to just the right level. Why walk around in basic black booties come fall when you could wear art like this instead? Burberry Prorsum ankle boots on NET-A-PORTERicon for $1,695.
