Since then, this Parisian-based artist has been known in fashion circles as 'The Architect', and its clear why, as he is fervently influenced by strong architectural shapes and towering constructions, which he transfigures into fashionable footwear. His structural Summer 2014 collection is a shoe lover's treasure chest of elegant and sophisticated pairs that make a statement with every step.
Burak's design aesthetic represents all that is glamourous about high heels, without overstepping the line of the outré and unwearable. Strappy slingbacks and caged sandals dominate in vivid tones of cobalt blue, aquamarine and tangerine, with a hint of yellow and subdued pastel hues that are sure to ignite any outfit. Burak experiments with contrasting colours and textures: leather with suede, prints and plains, accented by buckles and studs. Abstract ethnic and animal prints are etched across a refreshing set of flats and ankle-strap pairs.
Colour-blocked cut-out pairs are engineered to precision in sky scraping heights, the curvature a marvel in it's own right. Glossy metallic sandals add pizazz to your evening attire and chic black & white pairs are given a modern interpretation with interesting geometric forms and sharp angles.
There isn't a pair that I wouldn't want in this outstanding range. Burak Uyan is a designer to watch, I can already envision many of his creations making their way down runways and red carpets.
Flat Out Fabulous
