Behold! The perfect marriage of two British shoe specialists.
High-Street footwear retailer Dune has partnered up with designer Rupert Sanderson to bring you a collection of six versatile styles, from flats to stilettos, satin pumps to star studded, metallic lace-ups - this collection has it all.
The range draws inspiration from some of Sanderson’s most iconic styles, which have all been named after Spring daffodils. If this does not get you in the mood of SS17, then nothing will!
I took myself an afternoon to get up close and personal with the heels of the hyped collection, that had me realising that a) I need more red shoes and b) one should never underestimate the power of a delicate satin shoe. The rightfully named pointy pumps ‘Princess’, could solve a lot of your shoe dilemmas if you open your mind to how well they can compliment your collection of jeans. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that satin shoes are having a moment. And that ‘moment’ is finally about to live up to its right since we are officially moving into summer time TONIGHT.
But onto the metallic elephant in the room…. taking the shoe to the streets of Soho confirmed what I already knew: the Dream Girl lace-ups just made it to the sweet edit of my favourite Spring shoes. Undoubtedly the stars of the collection (puns intended!) the Dream Girl shoes that come in two colour combinations are inspired by no other than the late David Bowie. I received more compliments for my shoes in the few minutes of shooting that I usually get in the course of a year… I’m taking note.

The ‘Ella’ court is your shoe if you are looking for the most comfortable and wearable shoes of the collection. Perfectly crafted from Italian kid leather the essence of Rupert Sanderson’s mantra is clearly communicated: The woman wears the shoes; the shoes don’t wear her. With understated British elegance the ‘Ella’ court comes with the most innocent almond toe (something that I’ve admittedly missed) and might just be exactly the Spring update that I never knew I needed.
The ‘Dune loves Rupert Sanderson’ collection of shoes and clutches launches in stores and online April 1st! Sign up for the notifications by clicking on the shoes to be the first one to get your hands on the hyped collection.
