Autumn/Winter 17 collection

This week we launched the Yull A/W 17 for wholesale. The collection takes inspiration from two key trends of the season - the ‚ÄėSweetened‚Äô trend and the ‚ÄėFuturistic‚Äô trend. With the sweetened trend pastels are making a come back into winter, think baby blues and pinks. These can be found in our Harris Tweed that we have incorporated into heels and boots. Our use of mixing fabrics with leather has carried over into this season and has become iconic with Yull and its British feel.

The futuristic trend inspires the metallic in the collection. Gold metallic brogues and the Buckingham shoe are key to this trend. Inspiration has been taken from astrology, high tech and and an into the night sky vibe. Westminster tube station has been a key inspiration for this feel. An already favourite for the season is the Westminster shoe with pops of baby blue and gold on the heel available in 9cms and 3cms heels.

How to Wear Brogues

Brogues are traditionally characterised by multiple-piece leather uppers with decorative perforations on the ridges of the material. Roots of this iconic shoe can be traced back to an early 19th century traditional, elemental shoe from Ireland and Scotland. The shoe was designed as outdoor, country footwear for farmers to use when crossing wet terrain- the perforations on the uppers allowing the water to drain out of the shoe.
Brogues have definitely experienced a huge transformation from their original use in the 19th century, where they were considered to be innapropriate for any other situations, business or social.  Now it is one of the most fashionable, versatile and timeless shoes, constantly being reinvented in new ways. Aside from their typical form of leather flats, brogues can now also be boots, high-heeled shoes for women, and even sneakers! Needless to say, they are appropriate for almost every occasion, suiting both casual and smart attire.

SHOE OF THE WEEK

Friday 9th September 2016

An evening of fun, style and fashion to raise money for the domestic abuse charity Women's Aid. Shocked by the statistic that 1 woman is killed by domestic violence every 3 days in England and Wales the orginiser of this event, Kerry O'Brine, felt strongly that she wanted to help raise money.

Do a bit of shopping, try out some new beauty products, watch a women's fashion catwalk show, listen to an inspirational speaker and hopefully win something in the raffle!

Your evening will start with a glass of bubbly, canapes and a range of fashion and style brands to browse.

Try the fabulous shoes from Yull. Made in the UK in a mixture of fun and classic styles and colours - a great mix of heel heights make them perfect for work and the weekend! Chrissie from Stella and Dot will be bringing along a beautiful selection of jewellery. Mingle with other ladies whilst trying out makeup and beauty products with Rachel Pym from My Showcase. Enjoy some stunning millinery from Judy Bentinck. Whether you’re looking for something for the races, a wedding or a special occasion, Judy will create the perfect hat for you. PLUS many more brands!

At 7.15pm we will take our seats for the fashion catwalk showcasing the Kerry O'Brine Women's Wear new collection.

Style consultant Joanna Gaudoin will take us through the importance of image and how some of the catwalk pieces will work for different body types and colouring.

We will then hear from Rachel Short who sits on the 30% Club steering committee and is instrumental in a lot of their research. She is also the Founder of Why Women Work: A unique social enterprise, founded to boost the number of women in corporate leadership roles.

This will be followed by the fantastic speaker Roz Thornton. Roz is a very successful trainer and motivational speaker with personal experience of domestic abuse in her childhood family home.

Money from the tickets, purchases made on the evening and the raffle tickets will be going to the charity.

P.S. Don't forget to get raffle tickets on the evening for a chance to win amazing prizes such as some (OMG - i've tried and tested!) delicious Rolo cupcakes from Emma Berry at Pause For Torte.
