During the last seasons, quilted material has become a must have for fashionistas all over the world. For both collections of autumn-winter or spring-summer, we can see it in clothes, shoes, and bags and also mixed with other materials, leather jackets with quilted sleeves, suede bags with quilted straps… and also quilted ballet flats.
The first one to introduce this trendy material was Chanel, that used the fabric in some of the most iconic bags of the brand. Even if it’s origin name matelassé, is a reference to mattress, many voices say that the designer was inspired by the windows of the orphan house where she spend big part of her childhood.
The truth is that this material has been used for decades in sport clothing and cold climates But, for some years now, and with no apparent reason, this material has been spotted in not so cold cities, and has become trend.
Quilted flats: Latest trend
Like with clothes and bags, we can find two kinds of quilted leather flats in the market. If you haven’t worn this type of material yet and you want to try it slowly, the best idea is to find ballerinas in another material like suede or skin made, that have some quilted detail either on the toe or the heel. If you want to go for a more daring look, you can try quilted flats, fully in this material. There are plenty of models to choose from, depending on the kind of look and risk you want to take. You can find from the more discrete models, to other ones much more daring and with a striking and bold design.
One of the latest trends in quilted ballet flats is that they have some kind of detail like stones or studs that spark. This way, the ballerinas become a perfect shoe for the night or special occasions. Many brands have already added these details to their quilted flats, making that way a daily created shoe, ideal for the night.
In Balletinas you can find a large number of quilted leather ballet flats with exclusive designs and hand made in Alicante, that you can find in our online store.
