This past year, the real world has become the virtual world with endless Zoom meetings, social media binges and e-sports galore. Combining all these new features is sock brand Burlington with their new SS21 collection, Hacked Heritage. Dividing their collection into three subtopics – Office Hacker, Arcade Heroes and Hypernatual Reality – the brand allows you to embrace each area of the online world, whether it be through quirky digital filters or mind-blowing cyber games.
Using a special type of UV yarn, the white diamonds on the Burlington Argyle socks change colour when exposed to sunlight, adding a touch of finesse for those vibrant summer days. Keeping it feminine for the stripped version, the brand incorporates hints of traditional lace trim socks, but with a bold optical illusion twist. Like toy soldiers from an RPG video game, the Burlington Royal Guards sock plays on every video gamers fantasy, with bright neon finishes and intricate detailing.
Of course, we can’t venture into summer without some short socks to pair with our crisp fresh out the box Airforces. Coming back with a simple Ajour pattern, the new season Burlington Chelseas are a must-have for this summer, as the short sock allows you to easily slip on your favourite shoe without anyone noticing that you are wearing socks.
