Think boho and immediately summer and freedom spring to mind.  But there’s a seasonal boho too that captures the warmth of open fires, fallen leaves and crisp mornings..

Poise, power and grace..the colours and textures inform the story: an inspired heritage of folk songs, earthy cowboys and fantasy indians all creatively mixed up with a little bit of Mexico and South America..

There’s a whispered joy in watching the leaves dance whilst being snuggled up and letting the world walk on by..

Vans.  Fail safe, classic and easy…but could there be room for change?

Sneakers with a heel and now sneakers with a point..who would’ve thought it.  But this actually feels like a rather nostalgic nod to the once must-wear pointed flats of the eighties..and it’s always nice to find a forward moving mash…
