Behind the Scenes at our Autumn/Winter Photo shoot
After months of researching catwalk trends and colour palettes set to lead AW19, our designer Jo has worked meticulously to create a perfectly balanced new collection of knee highs, over the knees and stand out ankle boots. You’ll find something to suit your practical woman, your stylish woman and your everyday woman. And who said you can only be one type? This collection has been designed to arm every woman with their perfectly fitted pair of boots, each crafted with the upmost care to empower their wearer to expect the unexpected. You may have seen a few sneak peeks of the AW19 collection across our social platforms, but if you missed them check it out on our highlight reel on Instagram.
What to expect from DuoBoots in Autumn/Winter 2019
We are particularly excited to share this collection with you for a number of reasons, but primarily to show you the all the different styles we have been working on, each with truly unique detailing that we think you’ll love. We have adopted some new artisanal techniques for the upcoming season, so keep your eye out for statement heels, luxurious fabrics, and metallic finishes...just to name a few. As you know we are believers in slow fashion, and defy the fast-fashion approach adopted by so many other retailers, we pride ourselves on creating carefully crafted boots with our three core values in mind, style, fit and quality.
Last Autumn/Winter we debuted ‘The Edit’ collection for our customers who dare to be that bit different. Following the remarkable response we have received over the last year; we have evolved the collection to include some outstanding pieces, refined by their exceptional design, manufacturing and craftsmanship.
All of this has been created in line with our British heritage, alongside the exceptional craftsmanship of our Portuguese partners.
The Perfect Location
Sara, our head of marketing, explored a number of potential venues before stumbling across the perfect location. Neighbouring our head office in Frome, Somerset is the quaint town of Bruton...known to be ‘a bit of a one off, even more so than every Somerset town’. We loved the unique feel of the location; it was miles from anywhere which affirmed it was the right place for us! Oozing character, the area is known to be a hotspot for urban dwellers enchanted by the town’s Chapel restaurant, independent boutiques, organic whole food café, bespoke artisanal coffee shops and picturesque river running through the centre. All a stone’s throw from the rolling hills of Somerset. Bruton is often referred to as ‘surprisingly cosmopolitan’, even known to be visited by the Queen herself. Bruton is rich in quintessentially British design, a foundation that our brand is built upon...which made the shoot location all the more fitting.
A special thanks goes to our amazing team who all worked tirelessly to bring each of the designs to life. We have worked with our photographer Geoff and his assistant Poppy, our lovely stylist Nini and fabulous make up artist Evie over a few collections. Each of them understands our brand values, which made impromptu elements of the shoot possible. New to DuoBoots this season was our beautiful model Tatiana, who was an absolute delight to work with.
Take a Sneak Peek
Our two day photo shoot gave us the opportunity to bring the boots to life with a choice of outfits for that extra hit of styling inspiration. For example the soon to be newest member of the Edison family was shot in three different outfits to show you how such a statement style can be dressed for a range of occasions.
So here is a sneak peek of our AW19 collection – set to land later this year;
