Introducing the Autumn Winter Collection
Posted on September 02 2019
With the launch of the new Autumn Winter collection today, I wanted to give you a little introduction to each of the new styles. Our main collection launches in the Spring, so Autumn Winter is always a small, capsule range where we try and bring something new to the Rachel Simpson family.
There are six new shoes in the collection- four brand new styles alongside a couple of exciting new colours- one of an existing favourite, and one of a definite new favourite! We focused heavily on our signature, vintage inspired style this season- not least with the imminent launch of the fabulous Downton Abbey movie! We're keeping it thirties with t-bars, closed toes and wearable heels.
First up is Rosita, possibly one of the most pretty closed toe shoes we've ever made. The design was based on the iconic triple petal shape you can find on our best selling Mimosa shoe. Gold leather forms the outline of the 'petals', cleverly looping through the teardrop shape in the centre. The teardrop then twists together to form a really pretty t-bar, fastening around the ankle with a delicate gold buckle. Being a two part shoe means that whatever your size, Rosita is really flattering fit. It's also a great transitional shoe for any season, as it has a closed toe but is fairly open overall. At our photoshoot our models couldn't get over just how comfy they were! Available in ivory and pink.

Nothing beats a classic t-bar court shoe- it's a timeless style with a gorgeous vintage vibe and can be worn with a wide range of looks. We based the design of Paloma on a classic 1930s look- the interlocking straps and diamond shaped cut outs are an iconic style of the period. The main shoe is made from soft ivory suede and combines a chic closed toe and heel with tapered straps in contrasting meallic gold leather. Paloma is a wonderfully versatile fit with a wearable heel, and looks even better on!

After the runaway success of our classic Isabelle shoe, you asked for a lower heel, we listened, and we're now excited to introduce our new Isadora! With the same art deco inspired detail on the front of the shoe, Isadora sits on a gorgeous low heel so it's effortless to wear whilst giving you all the elegance of a signature Rachel Simpson. The delicate ankle strap gives you added support too. The rose gold glitter is made up of slightly larger pieces than standard glitter, which really catch the light as you walk and give the shoes a wonderful, multi-faceted appearance. The glitter is encased with metallic gold leather.

Several years ago we had a shoe called Carmen in the collection. Carmen was an adorable art deco style t-bar on a subtle platform, which made it a truly comfortable option for those not used to wearing a heel. This season we're delighted to introduce our Louisa shoe- the new platform for 2019, based on our iconic classic Carmen. Made from soft ivory suede, each panel is subtly rouched into a central teardrop shape. Metallic gold leather straps with delicate rose gold detailing loop through the teardrop and form an elegant t-bar.

We introduced our gorgeous block heel Candyfloss earlier this year, and have given it a stunning Autumn Winter makeover for the new season. We've replaced the candy striped summer heel with a striking gold glitter which really catches the light as you walk. The front of the shoe is made up of two super soft tubular leather straps in metallic gold leather, which loop around each other in the centre to softly encase the foot. Candyfloss truly have to be tried on to see just how incredibly comfortable they are, but combined with the mid height block heel this is the perfect shoe to take you from day to night with ease.
