We’re heralding the arrival of the new AW season, and now we feel ready for it, especially helped by nights and mornings drawing in and the change in the weather!
There really is some lovely footwear and accessories this season, and there are already items that are best-sellers or clear favourites at least. So much so we’re already trying to re-order!
We’ve got some of the key trends covered, from beautiful round bags from bell and fox (see the mini canteen bag!) Just glorious with gold and and black embroidery, you’ll be ready for the party season with these, to hi and low shine metallics (noted on our best-selling Apisi metallic blue boot), to beautiful slipper-loafers from Paul Smith & Hudson, in buttery soft patents. Subtle detailing sets styles apart like leopard print, flashes of colour in elastic or on tassels, and shapely cut-aways at ankles are seen. While embellishment on heels such as stone detailing, embroidery and burn-away techniques on scarves, & oriental charm is noted (wait and see Lucy Choi- when it arrives – simply stunning!)
Favourites & Best-sellers
Wearable, comfortable and beautiful are always key but practical and versatile are also what our customers seem to be looking for. Cross-over styles for footwear and even accessories are also best-selling for us and our new-shaped Hogl court with pointed toe and little block heel is proving a hit, while comfort mid-heel is given an update with on-trend fringing and block heel. Over-the-head ponchos are simple this season from us, but so wearable, while our scarves range from heavily patterned to simple pashminas in beautiful tones such as acid yellow and bright red which pop against deep colour outerwear! We’ve got our range of ‘pleather’ bags in for AW in berry, khaki, grey and navy tones which are proving popular (online soon).
Get ready too for new heavy winter footwear, we’ve the most incredible snow boot style from Hogl, soft fur trim, heavy but pretty sole, the leather is buttery soft; we’ve got two options grey suede and black leather – we couldn’t resist. UGG too is updated, we’ve gone classic this year, having completely sold out of the older ‘classic’ styles we’ve invested in the new ‘classic’ mark II. These have been given an update and are now water resistant (yes water resistant suede!), more durable and with updated treadsole.
All in all a great start to AW and I haven’t even mentioned our gorgeous new accessories, … I’ll update you on all new accessories in the next blog post which will follow next week …
