Burberry and Tricker’s, two stalwarts of the British fashion and footwear industry, have recently joined forces to create a stunning range of footwear that seamlessly blends style, durability and a nod to the great outdoors.
With a rich heritage and a shared affinity for the outdoors, Burberry and Tricker’s have unveiled a collection that stands as a testament to British craftsmanship and design excellence. The range includes brogues, Chelsea boots and derby shoes in a palette ranging from classic black and wine to more contemporary aubergine and camel, crafted in both calf leather and suede.
The intricacy of the craftsmanship is evident in the leather welt construction, a feature that not only ensures a strong bond between the sole and upper, but also provides the option for future refurbishment and repair, a nod to the sustainability efforts that both brands have championed. In addition, the shoes are finished with a rubber sole, underscoring the versatility of the footwear, ready to be worn on any adventure.
The collaboration is a materialization of Daniel Lee’s vision for Burberry, particularly highlighted in his debut Fall/Winter 2023 show, which subtly hinted at an explorer’s wardrobe. Since Daniel Lee took the helm, Burberry has sharpened its focus on exceptional craftsmanship and embracing its British heritage, returning the brand to its core values and origins.
To commemorate the partnership, Burberry will transform the window display at Tricker’s Jermyn Street store, a move that not only celebrates the collection, but also underscores the strong bond between these two British institutions.
Tricker’s, a brand with a storied history dating back to 1892, and Burberry, with its equally rich heritage and royal warrant, share more than a commitment to quality; they share a story deeply rooted in British culture and craftsmanship. Tricker’s, with its Grade II listed factory in Northampton, stands as a monument to this commitment and was even used as a filming location for the 2005 movie “Kinky Boots“.
