‘This season punk trends fuse classic traditions and a masculine accent for a new gritty glamour. More than ever each label defines their sub-cultures and the collection goes from extremes of prettiness to punk and all of the unexpected clashes in between.’
- Creative Director, Rebecca Farrar-Hockley
Black and white, rose and gold, oxblood, scarlet, fuchsia and electric blue, stilettos, Mary-Janes, wedges, super platforms, sneakers and motorcycle boots.
Silhouettes without compromise change from high-rise to flat, exploring details that often identify classic British design including the chelsea, brogue and military boot.
Also introducing unexpected British combinations- the chelsea and high-top wellingtons. And the slipper on a stiletto “Slipetto”!
With punk in mind, classic styles are customized and trimmed to various extremes with studding, buckles, straps and jewels. Flaunting with masculinity, chunky loafers, brothel creepers and brogues sit pretty with regal elegant styles, brocades, lace and laser-cut detailing. Restraining the season with classic minimalism is the knee-high boot, the cut-out court and the chunkier mini heeled Mary-Janes, which are newly proposed and perfectly untouched.

ACCESSORIES and Everything but the shoes
Kurt Geiger’s third handbag collection continues to stamp a design authority with further exploration of statement chains, exposed zips and edgier stud detailing. Carrying your life in your bag is left to the continuation of the classic totes, as the new proposals are more compact this Autumn Winter. The 'Humbug' collection adds a new squarer white Nappa leather clutch and other structured shapes are proposed with new styles like the ‘Sherbet Jazz’, ‘Liquorice’, ‘Rhubarb Rock’, ‘Lollidrop’ and ‘Gobstopper’. Bases of linear architectural inspirations are given depth through striking contrast colours, white leopard print calf hair leather and softly textured snake-cut leathers.
‘Mildred’, the Metal bulldog and chain is new and noteworthy in the jewellery offering. ‘Mildred’ comes as a statement wrist leash, on key rings or as a delicate menace on a gold chain bracelet and necklace. Other statement jewels stand out with combinations of faceted glass, pearls, Plexi and chains. Palettes play from iridescent tones to an assortment of one colour, highlighting textural combinations. The Candy collection continues a purse-friendly play with accessories including pouches, cardholders, wallets, trinkets, more structured technology accessories, bags and new padded nylon weekenders. Clean minimalist shapes and soft embossed snakes in red, nude, teal and black get wild with harsher textural surfaces, animal print and bold box chains.
The collection will be available across all stores.
