Dubai, UAE, August 25, 2016: Autumn presents a veritable palette combining bolder prints and textures. This season sees maximalist take over; brocade fabrics, liquid metal finishing and opulent velvets pull the collection into an era of dark glamour.
Winter khaki tones and utility inspired styles are introduced pre-fall, harnessing the season’s rebellious spirit. Dramatic hardware, cleated tread soles and burnished metallics enhance classic brogue and ankle boot profiles.
Rich, decadent fabrics evoke a notion of moody romance; electric blue and deep berry velvets cover ‘over the knee’ boots whilst brocade and lace textures feature on ankle boot and heeled silhouettes. Further fabric details emerge later in the season; gold tapestry, poetic winter florals and glossy black patent leathers add auxiliary allure.
Satin proves to be a key texture within eveningwear, with elegant ribbon trims wrapped over pointed profiles and ballerina tie fascinating’s adding interest.
Heel details are key this season; varying from spikey kitten, to high block cylinder shapes coated in foil. Platform heels are covered in metallic glitter and adorned with jewels playing into the maximalist trend.
