• SLENDER SILHOUETTES WITH BOLD DETAILS IN VAGABOND SHOEMAKERS’ NEW S/S 24 COLLECTION

    Written by Ulrika Lindqvist

    Vagabond Shoemakers unveils their latest Spring/Summer 2024 women's collection, seamlessly blending slender silhouettes with striking details. This collection pays homage to the feminine form while maintaining a contemporary and commanding presence through the infusion of bold elements and cutting-edge materials.

    As the Swedish footwear brand steps into a new season, it departs from platforms and hefty soles, embracing an elegant aesthetic. The focus shifts to refined silhouettes, featuring diverse toe shapes and heels across flats, sandals, and pumps. A distinctly feminine allure prevails with thinner outsoles, revisiting classic '90s styles like slingbacks, kitten heels, and wedges, each revitalized with unexpected details and thematic influences.

    The collection boasts a medley of elements, including buckles, mesh fabrics, Moto-inspired details, metallics, and athletic influences. Pointed toes, sharp heels, patent leather, and vintage materials further enrich the overall design. Maria Olander, the Creative Director at Vagabond Shoemakers, emphasizes the collection's intent: “The S/S 24 collection showcases pieces with a feminine profile – but toughened up with edgier features. Our aim was to create statement pieces, while keeping everyday wearability at the core.”

    Highlighted within the collection are key styles such as the Hermine slingback flats, characterized by a pointed-toe silhouette, buckle embellishments, and patent accents. Embracing the fusion of flats and sporty aesthetics, the Hillary style embodies a sleek amalgamation of flats and sneakers, featuring a refined outsole and mesh detailing. The Jonna strappy sandals add a dressy and sophisticated touch to the '90s-inspired kitten heel, while the Izzy flat sandals seamlessly blend a clean silhouette with meticulously crafted uppers.

    Scheduled for a January 2024 launch, the S/S 2024 collection by Vagabond Shoemakers will be available in selected stores worldwide and on vagabond.com.
