1453

Autumn/Winter 2015 Accessories Collection

This season focuses on new silhouettes. Shape and texture is heavily influenced by the Seventies era, whilst deep midnight tones make for an opulent day to evening collection.

Modern Icon

Utilising clean shapes and muted colours, a modern, sophisticated collection is introduced. A palette of winter blush, dove grey and ice blue makes for a clean, understated transition into Autumn. Hardware is minimal, where hidden popper fastenings replace noticeable zips and twist locks. Key profiles include foldover top-handle totes, framed shoulder bags and structured cross-body styles. Trapeze and hobo styles feature multicolour leather panelling for added impact.

The 70’s Edit

This growing trend continues into AW15 with a contemporary, uptown feel. Rounded saddle bags in rich chestnut and berry croc perfectly encapsulate the spirit of the Seventies. Shoulder bags in framed slouch and satchel styles are a key silhouette for the season. Saffiano leather and brushed nubuck textures elevate classic tote profiles to reflect the era. Bespoke details include quilted accents, circular clasps and braided shoulder handles for added luxe.

Midnight Renaissance

Luxurious textures in deep midnight shades add a sense of drama to day to night dressing. Ladylike frame bags in cherry red and midnight blues are finished in polished patents for added allure. Dark, tonal envelope clutches bring an opulent feel to the collection. Rounded cross-body silhouettes are adorned with jewellery-inspired hardware and intricate beading, whilst metallic box clutches are updated with perspex clasps. Drawing inspiration from 1920’s glamour, metallic reptile and feather prints as well as brooch embellishments are also introduced.

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.

Modern Icon

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.

Midnight Renaissance

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.

Autumn/Winter 2015 Mens’ Collection

 This season draws focus to the contemporary. An eclectic mix of styles combine to create a classic collection elevated by modern details such as texture combinations, hi-shine and colour contrasts.

Boot styles have an outdoor, rugged feel for this season, with herringbone fabric panels combined with worn-look leathers and chunky cleated soles which add texture and weight to casual boots.

The Alpine Explorer trend is highlighted through rich, dark tones, quilted collars and fabric combinations.

The classic Chelsea boot is re-worked with bold details, a defined round toe last, colour pop gusset, and cleated sole combine to create attitude.

 

Glossy, hi-shine leather finishes on formal styles add a dressier feel to sharp, almond toe brogue profiles. Deep tones of midnight blue, Bordeaux and chocolate brown emphasise the luxurious feel. The multi-colour panels are refined, adding a high fashion interest.

 

The English Gentleman trend elevates Dune Men’s everyday formal range; subtle changes on quintessential Oxford brogues are developed with mix textures. The monk strap is a key style for AW15, the profile takes on a formal silhouette, with vintage feel materials to give a more relaxed, artisan look.
