PortsPURE FW19 Collection

100% PURE

This season, PortsPURE explores the topic of consumerism. Expanding on the concept of environmental protection and sustainability, the collection features sustainable yarns, eco-furs and tongue-in-chic graphics that poke satirtical fun at how we consume.

The concept starts with fabrication. The adage of “Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.” is “Revisted” and more important than ever. Recyclable wool features prominently, taking this age-old warmth-giver on to an even greater sustainability level. Our Eco-fur feels just as lush and warm as the real thing – nothing feels sexier than being cruelty-free.

In terms of silhuoettes, PortsPURE stays true to its roots, taking masculine and feminine archetypes and turning them inside out in a play of contrasts and contradictions. Soft blouson shapes top structured work trousers, poplin shirting sleeves unexpectedly show up on casual crewneck jumpers and utilitarian quilting, long used as lining is brought front and center in a stunning two piece coat.

This season’s palette is strong and graphic, playing off the idea of how we consume in today’s day and age – the colors draw your eye just like a billboard or banner ad. “Fresh Squeezed Ideas” and “100% Pure”, strong slogans plastered in print or intarsia knits advertise subversively while strings of “Best Before” stickers playfully edge trouers, skirts and also sweaters.

To be human is to consume, make no bones about it but maybe, just maybe, we could do it with thought and intention. Conscious decisions made today, is a step towards a sustainable future.

R – SANDERSON London

The First Athelegant Footwear
SANDERSON London
Spring/Summer 2019

 

Alluring, artistic always, and more audacious than ever before.

 

R · SANDERSON London proudly presents ALKE – a momentous collection of athletic-inspired, customisable, sleek and elegant point-toe flats and heels, each made by hand in the Apennine Mountains using traditional Italian shoemaking techniques and century-old know-how.

 

A new, unique interpretation of the ubiquitous fashion trainer, ALKE articulates its athletic design through a multitude of distinctive elements: a bold and fluid design line, white rubber inserts, cushioned in-soles, the synthesis of multiple materials from suede, patent, calf, nappa to plexi, perforation detailing, juxtaposed with the precious and instantly recognisable R. Sanderson London 24-carat gold leaf heel.

 

Inspired by the spirit and personification of courage and battle-strength, from Greek mythology, amplified by the slogans “Be Brave”, “Trust Yourself” and “Believe in Extraordinary”, ALKE is the consummation of fusing bravery, empowerment and individuality. Presented with a range of customisable accessories such as metal tags, detachable gaters with optional hand-painted initials, and interchangeable laces that can also be styled in limitless ways to reflect one’s unique flair and character.

 

From day to night, seven days a week, all activities of work and play, ALKE is a genuine alternative to the regular fashion trainer, providing style and comfort every step of the way. It harmoniously compliments any outfit, exuding the spirit of freedom and vivacious energy, and the unmistakable elegance of R. Sanderson London.

 

In the continual pursuit of challenging the conventions of luxury footwear, R. Sanderson London has pushed the limits of what was once considered impossible by its shoemakers in Bologna, Italy. Demanding more than a year of dedicated research and development, numerous failed attempts, nothing comparable has ever been put forward in the world of shoemaking; ALKE is a true “game changer”, pioneering and disruptive.

 

  1. Sanderson London ALKE is an extension of the brand’s aesthetic of grace and sophistication, whilst remaining true to its core DNA of audacious ingenuity, bringing a much-needed breath of fresh air to the industry with innovative form and function.

 

The ALKE collection is available exclusively at R. Sanderson London boutiques.

 

 

Malone Souliers

AUTUMN WINTER 2019


For Autumn Winter 2019, Malone Souliers Founder and Creative Director, Mary Alice Malone continues to explore themes of identity and belonging through the study of symmetry and a ratheranalytical attitude to proportion and structure – reinventing, reinterpreting and reinforcing key brand detailing, but reimagining in new and always evolving fabrications and colours.

A fusion of organic and earthy tones brings Malone Souliers’ Autumn Winter 2019 collection to life this season. New and classic silhouettes are encased in subdued shades
of garnet, heather, mocha brown, blush and dusty rose as well as khaki, teal, and a very rich mahogany to add depth and understated elegance. In these simpler, more understated fabrications, the signature Malone Souliers detailing appears tonal rather than contrasting for a very subtle overall
effect. Mary Alice once again explores elements of menswear patterns and tailoring and introduces incredibly striking houndstooth printed elaphe on bicolour panelled boots in addition to the signature styles, including Maureen, Marion and Constance for a bold day offering.

For Autumn Winter, Mary Alice experiments with shearling to create the perfect winter’s day shoe. Colours are soft and muted including off whites and dusty pinks, trimmed with tonal nappa and suede.

For evening, iconic and new silhouettes for the first time ever are adorned with crystals to create a more dramatic and theatrical yet always wearable collection. New designs meticulously embellished with crystals include a fold over bootie and mule, in timeless black and white, as well as jewel tone
garnet and teal. In addition, existing styles Terry and Tasha are presented under a new light, with tonal crystals and on block heels.

The new V Cut Vamp mule carries major impact with striking lines, eye-catching colour combinations and a distinctive circular crystal buckle detail. The Maite, is presented in a combination of classic or bright satin colours, such as Fuchsia Pink, Emerald Green, Yellow, or Nude and Silver, on both a 45 and a 70 mm heel.
The Autumn Winter 2019 Collection represent Malone Souliers’ timeless craft combined with a modern muse, skillfully presented in an array of exquisite materials and colours to create an offering destined for longevity.


The Malone Souliers AW19 Collection is available to purchase in store and online from May.
