Australia Luxe previews AW11 collection at the Mayfair Hotel, London

Australia Luxe Collective’s Swarovski Crystal studded, raccoon fur trimmed, vintage leather sheepskin boots aren’t for popping to the shops in – unless, perhaps, you live on the King’s Road.

Like wellie brand Hunters, Australia Luxe wants to give comfort shoes high-fashion credibility.

This week the brand showcased its autumn/ winter collection at a fashion event at London’s Mayfair Hotel. The collection is varied. Boots come in colours including tan, black and aubergine, a variety of leg lengths and feature a range of luxury materials in designs.

At the event I chatted to husband and wife founders Nicole Durand and Stuart Rush, who started the brand in Melbourne, Australia, five years ago.  

Co-founder Nicole, a fan of glamour and high-heels, has also introduced wedge-heeled sheepskin boots to the collection, which are fun and look great. In addition, the brand has launched a range of accessories and coats.

Nicole told FahionBite she is keen to create more animal fur free styles to give consumers more choice. “I would like to introduce more sheep-hair and wool into designs in the future, instead of animal fur,” she said. This is great news for me because, although I do love the look of Luxe Australia’s fur-trimmed styles, I don’t wear animal fur.

Luckily for me there are already lots of boots in the range that don’t feature fur.  For example, Nicole’s favourite boot in the collection is ‘Slouch Tall’, a striking over-the-knee style, which combines sheepskin and leather. I must admit I am a fan of the style too.
