Dune London Autumn/Winter 2015 Ladies’ Collection
This season draws focus to reinvention. Influences are taken from the present-day modern icon, whilst textures and colours are revitalised, developing through the season from fresh and neutral to rich and luxurious.
Shape and texture is still heavily influenced by the Seventies era, whilst deep midnight tones make for a dramatic day-to-evening collection.
A contemporary collection is introduced through clean, soft lines and minimal profiles. An understated palette of grey, foundation and winter blush bring a sense of newness. Soft leathers streamline previous loafer and ankle boot profiles, with thick cross-toe straps being a key styling element. Hardware features are kept simple and versatile; buckles and trims add interest and reflect a contemporary movement. Modern lines and muted tones make for a clean transition into autumn.
The 70’s Edit
An uptown feel is referenced through this collection, with silhouettes and colour palettes reflecting the 70’s era. A rich, autumn palette provides endless versatility; warm honey, chocolate brown and fox red elevate classic silhouettes. Playful styling elements of fringing and tassels elevate profiles to reflect the western trend.
Drama is created through deep, luxurious tones; midnight blue, Bordeaux red, dusted metallic and shimmering lurex evoke subtle glamour. Intricate embroidery is enhanced with detailed stitching; weaving metallic threads, gem stones and beads together on high shine satin.
Statement embellishments feature on block heels, and straps for added opulence.
Mesh is reinvented this season adding sheerness to delicate fabrications, while lace and brocade play into the Victoriana trend. In contrast, glossy patent and croc effect leathers adds a boldness to day-to-night dressing.
