On Wednesday night I was lucky enough to be invited to an exclusive event above the Dune store on South Molton Street. If you haven’t already heard in every magazine/newspaper/blog around – highstreet footwear emporium, Dune, have team up with London-based designer Olivia Rubin for a limited edition collection for Spring 2011.
Famed for her unique colourful designs, Olivia has chosen three of her favourite signature prints to be worked across twelve shoe designs and three handbags. The shoes and bags were all obviously on display, from the totes to Mary-Jane pumps and 70s high-rise raffia wedges – all in iconic bold prints.
On hand at the event to chat about the collection both for Dune and Fashion Week, was Olivia herself. She was a great hostess and modelled her own shoes very well. Speaking about the collaboration she said “It has been an incredible experience working with Dune on this collaboration and bringing a selection of my signature prints onto a range of both classic and contemporary shoes and accessories.”
Prices stat from £65 for a multi-coloured pump to £110 for the statement sandals.
A huge thank you to the ladies at Dune and of course Olivia.
P.S. the cupcakes rocked my world.
