Dune London AW15

Dune previews are always highly anticipated for me, I don’t know whether that’s just the London girl in me but I think its because they always have really nice collections that are always conceptual and completely different to the last. This season had an apparent seventies influence with rounded saddle bags in rich chestnut and berry croc. The different shapes and textures were also reminiscent of the seventies. The deep auburn, navy and brown tones were suggestive of autumn and the beautiful nude hues played with the idea of bareness in an opulent season.

The collection has something for everyone, whether your a modern girl who loves colour blocking and in your face prints or a classic girl looking for a brushed saffiano leather tote. The beautiful velvet clutches embellished with brooches and feathers may speak to the flapper girl within, its a must see collection and you are likely to find a bag perfect for you.

The shoes very much mirror the bag trends, from casual ankle boots to embellished stilettos and mesh detailed pumps. A predominantly autumn palette however this collection spoke to the all-year-round open shoe wearing Dubai girl in me. There were wedges, platform stilettos and even clogs…I don’t think I could pull of the clogs but they would definitely look great on the right girl.

Plums and burgundies are my favourite autumn hues and I love my customised Zizzleblog croc bag, its small but has pockets for EVERYTHING and it comes in a variety of prints and textures, head to your nearest Dune store to find your perfect accessory!

Dune AW13 Collection

Zizzle went to the unveiling of Dune London’s Autumn/Winter 2013 collection and it was everything we imagined and more. We expected a boy meets girl collection as Autumn/Winter is all about that sharp androgynous look however we loved how Dune managed to incorporate femininity which kept the collection sexy. From the furry leopard prints to the tri-tone brogues and kitten heels, the contrasting colour panelling added boldness to the range. The muted autumn hues gave a gothic nod to the punk-influenced collection and we dug the retro low block heels with ankle straps.

The handbags were absolutely stunning, again a lot of  Tans, Browns and Blacks but the collection was Blingjected (Zizzle Dictionary Definition: Injected with a splash of sparkle) with embellished bags and flashes of vibrant colour. It was love at first sight with this leather and suede tassled beauty and we thought it would be rude not to invite her home with us.  
WARNING: She will be spotted about town possible teamed with our gorgeous Dune sunglasses.
Take a trip to your nearest Dune store to shop the new collection 🙂
