On Tuesday of this week I was lucky enough to be at an event to showcase Bertie's new season shoes along with lots of other bloggers. We were treated to drinks and a rather tasty buffet in the new flagship store on South Molton Street and a lovely new pair of shoes (more on those later...)
The AW ad campaign centres around 'The Love Affair', the story of the founder falling in love with shoes whilst working as an airport cleaner, leading him to start the company in 1974. Black and white images centre around the shoes and how they are worn by the models.
As for the shoes themselves, there were many to lust after at the event and I snapped some pictures of the best of the collection. The overall feel of the collection was wearable yet unique, the soft and hard leathers of the boots and shoes were accompanied by interesting details including studs, chunky rubber soles and velvet laces.
Here are my favourites from the collection:
Everyone needs a pair of brogues this season and this pair are more interesting than your average. Love the stud detail on these 'Gateux B', £70.
Continuing with the stud-love, these studded fold down boots are so comfy and the perfect accompaniment to a rainy day in the city. 'Nickson B', £135.
If you buy one new pair of boots this season, make sure you get yourself some heeled hiking boots like this lovely pair. Warm and on-trend! 'Reagan', £125.
If you fancy splashing out on some new evening shoes then these are the pair to buy. Black and mega-strapped, will look perfect with a pair of leather shorts and a crisp white shirt accompanied by some bold lipstick. 'S Superstar, £110'.
Last, but definitely not least are my favourite pair of shoes from the event:
As displayed here by my good friend Amy of 'These Girls Turn Heads', these furry clogs are attention seeking in all the right ways. Not currently available on the website, but keep checking bertie.com for your chance to own a pair of these beauties!
All in all the event was a perfect platform to display the new collection and the new flagship store and I had a great time. Thanks to the team at Bertie for putting on a great show!
