AW17/18 Premium leather womens range
Working with the same premium leather supplier as on the mens AW17/18, we designed and developed an awesome ladies footwear and accessories range. We used the same design details in the bags and shoes and made the most of the luxurious leathers. In this post we will take a closer look at some of our favourites.
The Chelsea boot is still going strong, a staple in every fashion orientated young ladies wardrobe. This boot has a lightly grained toe cap and waxed suede counter and vamp, the heel unit is made of stacked leather and the welt is not functional but certainly looks great. The bag has a waxed cotton body and the same light grained leather with raw edges as used on the boot. Tying together the materials to show the diversity of the leather and how beautiful it is in both footwear and accessories (large and small) was a big part of the brief.
Tan is a really on trend colour, both in mens and ladies, fortunately we had worked closely with the tannery to create a lightly oiled gorgeous whiskey leather that worn over time gave it its own distressed look, adding character and making no 2 of the same style exactly the same.
Soft grained leather offset and contrasted with the suede, in chocolate tones accentuates the gold hardware. The last has a slight and rounded point with a 3 inch heel, similar to that seen across the catwalks recently.
This tote featured the same gorgeous leather. Where possible we really wanted to show off the quality of the materials, so for example on many of the shoes and especially the bags we left them unlined and raw edged, minimal to no stitching, favouring metal stud work and pins over extra work for the machinists.
This low cut slanted boot utilised a similar last to the boot above. In 2 pieces of tan suede with a gold zip it really is one of the favourites of the range. Hitting all the trend elements on the head this is sure to be a success.
