Can you believe it’s time for the Autumn/Winter collections already? I feel like it was just five minutes ago I was putting together the summer previews, but now the sales are in full swing, and the winter stock is starting to arrive. If you’re a long-time reader, you’ll know I’m no fan of winter fashion, and REALLY don’t want to think about it in the middle of the current heatwave, but I must admit to having already bookmarked a couple of coats for the coming season, so I figured I may as well see if I could find some shoes to join them.
The shoes shown are all part of the Dune Autumn/Winter collection, which will be available in store within the next few weeks. As you would expect from a winter footwear collection, Dune will also be releasing a wide selection of boots next season, but I’ll level with you: while there was absolutely nothing wrong with any of the ones I looked at in the preview, none of them exactly set my pulse racing either, so I’ll leave those for another day, and concentrate on the shoes for now.
As for the shoes, meanwhile, well, I’m picking up a bit of an 80s vibe from some of these, courtesy of the metallic uppers and pointed toes. Other shoes, meanwhile, stick to bright primary colours like red and blue, with the ones at the top of the page adding a little twist of gold to the mix, too.
If you’re in the UK, I’m sure winter shoes are the very last thing you want to think about wearing, given the current temperatures, but I’d love to hear what you think of these, anyway. Something to look forward to, do you think, or will you, like me, be clinging to your summery sandals for as long as humanly possible?
