Hello, how do you Dune?


Say goodbye to uncomfy shoes, and say hello to chic style and comfort this holiday season with Dune London’s Autumn-Winter 2016 collection.

Women have been known to sacrifice comfort, for the sake of fashion. Think high heels that leave you staggering and wobbling about, at day’s end, blister-causing pinchy shoes that bite into your skin, to name some common perils faced by the uber fashion-forward set.

With the holidays just around the corner, you can expect more feet to fall victim to those killer heels – what with a gamut of fancy parties, looming in the not-so-distant horizon. Save your feet from party woes with Dune’s latest collection of women’s footwear.

Block party

Renowned for its stylish yet sensible block heel, British brand Dune showcases sleek modernity and sassy style in its new collection. Block heeled shoes need not be boring or frumpy – Dune highlights these easy-to-wear shoes in a range of materials and colors to liven up your holiday outfit. Best of all, you can wear bock heeled shoes for hours, on end, without compromise to your feet. The party can go on, and your feet won’t mind one bit!

Kick up your boots

Boots are likewise big in this new collection, and are another attractive option for the season. Boot heights range from ankle to over-the-knee, and come in a variety of deep, rich colors, such as velvety berry hues and vibrant electric blues. Dramatic hardware, cleated tread soles and burnished metallics enhance classic brogue and ankle boot profiles.

That ‘heeling’ touch

Women who cannot seem to walk away from a pair of heels need not fret – Dune has options that will not only look pretty on your feet, but will also fit pretty well. Heel details are a focal point this season – from spikey kitten, to high block cylinder shapes coated in foil, and jewel-clad platform heels covered in metallic glitter – Dune offers that “heeling” touch you seek.

A flair for drama

Taking its inspirations from Autumn’s palette and natural dramatic flair, Dune brings forth a maximalist look this season. Bolder prints and textures, rich brocade fabrics, liquid metal finishing, and opulent velvets pull the collection into an era of dark, mysterious glamor. More intricate fabric details – such as gold tapestry, alluring winter florals, and glossy black patent leathers – heighten the drama later in the season. Satin is likewise a key texture, with elegant ribbon trims wrapped over pointed-toe shoes and ballerina ties adding interest to flats.

All in the bag

And what’s a great pair of shoes without a bag, to match? A muted palette of pewter, navy and warm grey is splashed across drawstring bucket bags, winged totes and saffiano shoppers for a fresh, understated autumn look. Day bags become more adaptable, where top-handle totes feature detachable front envelope clutches for additional multi-wear options. Key pieces include oversized shearling fur shoppers, pocket detail duffle bags, curved saddle styles and fold-over mixed material clutches in an assortment of khaki suede and forest green leathers. Patchwork
remains strong in the collection, as well.

For evening options, mini-bags are all the rage this Autumn-Winter 2016. Micro-mini pieces are adorned with statement jewels, studs, glitters and polished patent finishes. Cross-body, trapeze and bucket bag styles are reduced to miniature proportions in an array of berry red, navy and cosmetic pink tones.
