As a special thank you, all guests received a beautiful goody bag to take home – filled with delicious macarons from Frederics, handmade biscuits from Canary and Cuckoo (all designed to fit with our seasonal theme!), plus sweet gifts from a few of our lovely brands. Our favourite of course, has to be the purses designed specifically for the evening and handmade in Spain. Available in vibrant shades of red, blue and yellow, they’re the perfect size for everything you’d need for a night out and we hope you love them as much as we do!

Toni Pons Espadrilles…the PERFECT summer shoe

This time of year is when the Toni Pons page in our online store goes totally mad! These beautifully made espadrilles are ideal from this time of year through to September. With open and closed toe options, they’re versatile and comfortable. We tend to stock core styles, such as Ter and Nuria in a few colour ways, as customers keep coming back for more! Check out the brand new designs for this year…

Estel-OR is a sweet take on a traditional espadrille with its embroidered denim upper and a very similar design to Etna which was one of our best sellers last summer.

 

Screenshot (118)Terra-OR is a best seller for us so far. The little wedge heel makes it ideal for dinner out on holiday, or that weekend family BBQ.

Find your favourite  Toni Pons online or visit us in store and see for yourself why they are our best sellers by far every summer.

Vegan friendly Dr Martens

There’s been a huge increase in customer desire for vegan friendly products – particularly Dr Martens. So added to our collection for this season are a lace up shoe, boot, buckle shoe and an extra-chunky sandal.

This lace-up shoe is a classic 1461, with a croc-friendly, metallic twist. They’re as hardy and durable as you would expect from any Doc, but they’re 100% vegan.

We know it’s nearly summer, but these cherry red beauties are never out of place! Set on the iconic AirWair sole unit with that contrast yellow stitching, this vegan alternative is a Doc through and through – just with a high shine synthetic upper and no leather.

 

Screenshot (112)

We thought it was never going to happen – summer we mean – but it’s finally on the way and it’s time to think about sandals! This super chunky moc-croc metallic style is great with jeans or shorts. They’re made from the same synthetic material as the 1461 shoe.

 

Screenshot (111)

 

This little t-bar is packed full of Doc attitude and is Goodyear welted – meaning it’s super durable and hard-wearing. The upper is a cherry-red synthetic Cambridge Brush material, the same as the boot. So you’ve guessed it – the entire shoe is vegan!

From weddings to wet winter walks

This little pair of Primigi boots are living proof of what footwear can go through, and still come out the other side! They’ve been on forest walks, been dunked into puddles, worn at nursery and were still smart enough for Mum and Dad’s wedding day.

Check them out in action on the video – https://youtu.be/SQfsUg1A1xs

Fresh Attire

Since we started stocking men’s clothing, it has been swept off the hangers within days of  a new season beginning. This spring and summer is no different.

A favourite so far has been this Barbour utility jacket – sturdy zips and button pockets make it ideal for chilly walking weather.

RM Williams offer us another collection of their classic plaid, button down shirts – ideal with jeans or chinos for spring.
