Seemingly, it’s rather difficult to come up with something new when it comes to versatile, but very simple beige pumps. But the French fashion house Balmain surprised us this season, reinterpreting classics in a different way. The trick is that the brand’s creative director Olivier Rousteing decided to combine design of the traditional pumps with loafers, and see what would happen. The result is a very subtle and unusual pair of shoes, completed with a massive gold buckle. And more importantly, that this pair will become to taste both lovers of vintage looks and trend hunters. You just need to decide how to style them – with cropped flared jeans, “granny’s” cardigans or slip dresses.
