Hot Picks

We’ve picked out a few of our favourite Bourne designs including Marcy, a beautiful peep toe platform in taupe patent snakeskin with a covered stone detail corsage. This is shoe for day or night, it will glamourise a day time outfit and will also look great in a more formal setting. We also love Alice, a casual pointed flat pump in luxurious snake skin with a glass and crystal trim. This shoe has been recognised by Marie Clare who featured it in their magazine. Our final pick is Carrie, a high fashion suede ankle boot with platform and woven chain detail. Nothing gets more glamorous than Carrie! They incorporate a classic shoe boot style with a chic twist. Carrie is available in super soft suede in Black and Smoke and has a sophisticated silver chain trim. The style of the boot is timeless and looks great with tapered trousers and a fur gilet to instantly update your look.
