Throughout my endless web wanderings, I found an interesting and promising shoe brand which I've been dying to share with you. They're called Dune and I've found a great selection at Very.co.uk, an online store which sells everything from clothes to electronics.
Dune is a shoe brand launched in 1992 by Daniel Rubin who comes from a family with a strong tradition in the shoe business: "his father owned a ladies fashion shoe factory , his grandfather arrived in London from Lithuania at the end of the 19th century and opened a small shoe factory and his great grandfather was a cobbler in the back streets of Vilnius". Talk about family traditions!
Their products can be bought in the UK stores, through their website and through online stores like Very.co.uk.
The Dune shoes selection that Very.co.uk carries is very wide. They have them in different styles - wedges, stilettos, flats, platforms or kitten heels. Therefore, there's something in there for all of us. Also, they have various shoe styles suitable for different occasions, different seasons, so everybody can find what they're looking for.
Here's my favourite picks:
Jerica Platform Shoe Boots in brown featuring a lace-up style. They're not only very feminine, but also versatile and practical thanks to the laces. The colour is also a big plus since they're not as basic/plain as black, but not too daring either. They would be perfect for work or for more official meetings.
Jiant Chandelier Heel pumps are more on the creative side and feature a stiletto heel with a chandelier like base. They come in black and light brown patent leather and would suit for a night out, for a festive evening, for a celebration and, why not, a fancy event.
The Jag real suede bow back sandals are an urban take on lady-like shoes. The net piece is very fresh and brings attitude to the shoe. All in all, a great combination for a modern young lady who cherishes both femininity and a strong message.
The Peep Toe pumps come in two different colours: gold and fuchsia. The colour is great, they can bring a dash of colour and optmism to any plain outfit. Also, the fact that they're not that tall makes them suitable for every day use, without hurting your feet.
The Sullivan Over-the-knee boots are a classic take on the style, with clean simple lines, a back zipper and a staple to complete the look. Useless to say that they are literally meant for every day use.
Unfortunately, Very.co.uk ships only within the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man. However, if you have friends there you might be able to arrange something. Or, in some more fortunate situations, I hope you'll find the store while travelling in the UK.
What do you think about this brand? Which ones are your favourites?
