All hail shoe supremos Russell & Bromley's new A/W 09 collection!
Not only are they offering of-the-minute footwear (no sooner had Frida Giannini sent those tasselled riding boots down the catwalk at Gucci had Russell & Bromley got a to-die-for copy flying off their shelves on to the feet of the rich and famous such as Cat Deeley and Elle Macpherson) they also produce timeless classics (think Alexa Chung's loafers) made to impeccable standards at attainable price points.
So, with all this in mind, we couldn't wait to set our eyes on the A/W 09 collection. The results? More classic styles funked up with grungy studding, punky buckles and sexy styles.
Our personal favourites are the deep cherry brogues - wear these with the new slouchy trouser shape, belted sack-like at the waist and sequined socks.
And, who could resist paying homage to Prada's A/W 09 practicality trends with these thigh-high waders? Perfect for adding a touch of high-fashion to all your winterwear looks.
