Opulent. If I have to describe the collection in one word, that would be it. From rich textures to revitalised colours, Dune London’s AW16 collection is nowhere near average. Handpicked and carefully crafted, Danni Slater, International Brand Manager at Dune London, took us through the entire selection at The Lounge, Fashion Avenue of The Dubai Mall. Read on to learn what you can expect from the new collection, which will hit stores in the region very soon!
Exclusive to the Middle East
I’m going to start with what you can find
everywhere only in the Middle East.. From brooch-detailed wedge sandals to pointed toe court shoes in rich shades of burgundy, navy and gold, heightened glamour is all the rage in the new season; simply perfect for a special occasion like Eid, which is right around the corner!
With comfortable short wedge-heeled slip-ons (NALINI, AED 499) offering a much-needed respite from killer heels, silk, velvet and shimmer fabrics promise to dazzle any outfit day or night. And for those looking to smarten things up at work, the pointed toe court shoes in black and silver are ideal.
Dune London AW16 Collection
From block heels to stilettos, satin to patchwork, Dune London’s AW16 collection is an instant attention grabber. Keeping up with winter khaki, navy and burgundy tones, each pair in the new collection is exclusively designed to meet the many needs of the modern woman without taking away from classic patterns. For example, the AZZRA Patchwork High Heel Court Shoe (AED 549) is an excellent choice for work while the MELODEE Jewelled Heel Peep Toe Sandal (AED 549) is just what you need to make a statement on the dance floor!
Whichever pair calls to you, don’t forget to put the spotlight on your heels – a key trend this season. Spikes kitten, high block cylinder coated in foil, platforms in metallic glitter and adorned with jewels – name it, Dune London have thought of it!
When it comes to the AW16 accessories collection, Dune London have not failed to experiment with colour and texture across its range of drawstring bucket bags, winged totes and saffiano shoppers. Switch from day to night effortlessly with top-handle totes featuring detachable front envelope clutches saving one the trouble of going home to grab a smaller clutch for after-work dinner and drinks. Matching patchwork clutches to the AZZRA court shoes are also available for those who are particular about coordination.
From the new collection, the mini and micro-mini pieces are what steal the show. The DETTIAN Tassel Trim Quilted Cross Body Bag and the SANDRINE Winged Top Handle Micro Bag are not only the more affordable bags at AED 299, but are also classics that won’t be going out of style anytime soon.
