High street footwear brand Dune has teamed up with luxury designer clothing label Kit Neale to produce a line of footwear and accessories for autumn winter 2017.
The Kit Neale x Dune London collection includes 10 styles of footwear in a range of colours. Shoe styles include derby style, hi-shine leather boots, slip-ons, and trainers. There is also a selection of travel-inspired accessories including a holdall bag, rucksack, wash bags, and passport holders.
The collection has a seafood theme and all the accessories are named after fish. Neale was inspired by graphics on seafood packaging in London’s oriental supermarkets.
Neale said about the collection: “No matter whether you’re in a classic British Fish and Chip shop, a supermarket in China Town, Billingsgate Fish Market, or the Afro-Caribbean food section of a convenience store – the graphics on seafood products are strangely often highly graphic, colourful, illustrated designs. I took these graphics and created a print and range that was reflective of some kind of uniform that you might find in a kaleidoscopic fishmongers or modish Sushi bar. Think if Kit Neale had a fishmongers or Sushi restaurant chain… what would the workers wear?”
The collection is set to launch from 9 October in selected Dune stores and online.
