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.
