Dune London AW’16 Men’s Collection

This AW16, Dune Men’s brings together a collection that mixes the traditional with the functional and sits classic staples alongside updated new shapes.

Urban Gent is this season’s take on the formal trend. Clean uppers, hi-shine and embossing create a sharp aesthetic. Detailing comes in the form of hardware such as buckles, metal snaffles and Saffiano texture. Tonal textures vary from black through to bordo, chocolate brown and midnight blue. Sleek formal boots are updated, with details such as zips and monk straps being a key feature.

The Stornaway trend shifts focus to a more rugged and casual feel for AW16. References come from the Scottish highlands, and battling the great outdoor elements. The hiker is a key profile within this collection, with more functional details such as ski-hooks, cleated soles and padded collars used to set the look. Brogue and Chelsea boots also feature, in warm Autumnal shades of burgundy, rust and brown whilst rich, pebbled leathers and contrasting fabric panels provide multiple textures.

Neptune Rising is a smaller capsule trend which brings updated elements on sportier styles. Sneakers are produced with hi-shine leathers in new shades of forest green and deep oxblood. Simplistic and easy to wear, whilst still adding a shot of attitude, these styles will complement the urban office wardrobe as well as a more traditional casual look.
