Stylish step in the right direction
DUNE. If i think of Dune store i think of late 90's early 00's. Then the giants Topshop, ASOS, New Look, Office and more ploughed into the market to offer fashionable and affordable (New Look being the big winner!) stylish shoes that had quality without the price tag. DUNE seemed to take a back seat...but my opinions and memories of this shoe store chain are changing. Last week i popped along to meet the lovely and very talented Olivia Rubin at the launch for her new hotly anticipated collaboration with Dune. Checking out the collection and in general the whole presentation of the evening (pink fizz and cocktails were yum) i was falling in love and seeing a new side to the store i had not frequented for a few years. Quality hiller heels, fun flats and bags were adorned with some signature prints courtesy of Olivia. Favourite had to be the Cream swirled wedges 'Matisse'- a 70's siren, with a touch of girly cheek = summer statement. For the pop colour trend and a bit more Bowie than delicate Bardot it had to be the 'Warhol'. Modelled by Olivia herself. Yes there were a few that didnt appeal, but then thats down to personal taste. If prints and patterns arn't nessecarily your thing then still check out the latest editions instore. Prices between £45 and £100, with most sitting around £70. A good price for a well drawn killer heel with trend and class. I hear there are many more things in store for Dune so watch this space....!
