DUO Boots*

A few weeks back I attended Duo’s flagship store opening at Covent Garden. It was an intimate bloggers event, where we had a chance to meet the Head of Design at DUO Jem McNulty and Laura Puddy a stylist and columnist at Cosmopolitian who talked about their career in the fashion industry and what it takes into designing the perfect boots (shoes). Also prior to the evening/event,  DUO was running a competition in which a lucky blogger will have the chance to style their Christmas display window and all we had to do was to put together/style a party outfit featuring a DUO’s boot/shoes. Unfortunately I didn’t enter the competition (don’t ask, work loads) but the lucky winner Aimee from Clones N Clowns did a great job with her piece, and so did the rest of the 23 entries. She got to work with DUO’s creative visual merchandising team who will help bring her vision for their Christmas window to life.

A little about DUO…
DUO is a British footwear brand that tailors the fit of its elegantly designed shoes and boots collections. Their Mission is to be every women favourite footwear brand. DUO stands out from the rest with their impeccable quality, and their in-house designers collaborate with European factories to creat a distinctive made-to-measure boots from 30cm calf sizes to 50cm calf sizes. DUO is described to be for “women who loves great design and expressing their individuality through footwear, who want to reference trends but not slavishly follow them”, which I totally agree with as their boots/shoes are so stylish and trendy. As I had the pleasure to own one myself, I was given the chance to choose my choice of boots, and I went for LEIGHTON (A flat over-the-knee suede/leather boots). It’s amazing how well it fit perfectly! To get the perfect fit it’s advice to measure your calf and go a cm down from the actual measurement as leather do stretch upon wear.
