Dune Loves Rupert Sanderson
Dune London is pleased to announce a collaboration with London-based designer Rupert Sanderson.
Sanderson’s shoes have become synonymous with understated British elegance and style. Therefore a collaboration with footwear experts and high street staple Dune London was an inevitable, seamless and aspirational concept.
The collection, launching 1st April 2017 comprises six styles in a range of colourways, all named after spring daffodils.
Fortunes Beauty, Gracehill and Princess all in a beautiful luxe satin with scalloped edging and frayed edges epitomise Sanderson’s styling and attention to detail. With these styles, Rupert wanted to create both an open and closed shoe expression. On two different heel heights, these styles are romantic, classic and wearable.
The Ella court shoe with elegant block heel and almond toe shape on luxurious kid leather reflects Sanderson’s classic signature style with a twist. The contemporary block heel creates a modern, punchy effect.
Star Girl and Blazing are the ‘wow’ pieces of the collection. Bowie inspired, these styles are available in two colour treatments of vibrant metallic red and electric blue or a more subtle mix of gold and
silver in a sky high heel or a cool summer flat. The block triangle shapes, give the intricate effect of being placed around the foot whilst the ‘starburst’ tassel detailing give these styles a touch of glam rock, party fun.
Daniel Rubin, Dune London’s Executive Chairman says;
“I have always been a great admirer of Rupert’s ranges. His shoes are always beautifully crafted with great emphasis on shape and cut. Every aspect of his shoes is well balanced and just right. He doesn’t compromise. We have strived to achieve these standards, albeit a different level, at Dune. That’s why I was so excited to collaborate with him on this project. Working with Rupert and his team on this range has been a pleasure. His creative talent and passion for getting the detail right has meant that we have a stunning range that has way exceeded my expectations. I can’t wait for the launch in April.”
