Rising New Zealand Footwear Brand Releases Trendy New Collection
With the prevailing sense of uncertainty lingering in the air, Bronwyn’s latest collection by New Zealand designer Sarah Street, is sure to bring some welcome respite this Spring.
Collection Five showcases a slick edit of footwear staples, equal parts coveted and considered; a curation of styles that are sleek interpretations of the needs of the wearer for every occasion. Nods to 90s minimalism are subtle yet ever present in Sarah Street’s design aesthetic, as is the precision-like focus on comfort and elevated detailing. “I know for me, as I get older and I redefine who I am as a woman and what I want my foundational wardrobe to be, comfort is a factor that is becoming increasingly more of a non-negotiable,” says Street.
The latest collection features Bronwyn’s new signature bubble flatform, a curvaceous flatform with gentle rocker and enhanced underfoot padding for ample comfort when walking. “The bubble flatform is something I’m really excited about” explains Street, “The idea of a really simple item like the flatform,reimagined in a new way that is both fun and suggestive of how the unit feels underfoot, was a really enjoyable design experience for me”.
Key foundational pieces Cas, Camille, Ava and Billie return with refined detailing and features, while a refreshing selection of new flat sandals, heeled sandals and flatforms create a well-rounded collection of wardrobe footwear for the discerning wearer.
Soft rosewater hues sit in gentle juxtaposition with hot pink; a warm melon-tinted pink hue, perfect for a multitude of wearers. An inviting palette grounded by Bronwyn’s staple tones of Shell, Camel and perennial Black.
A partnership with ethical manufacturers in Dongguan, China; a female-owned business by a long-time friend of Creative Director, Sarah Street, continues to grow the brand from an ethical perspective. Working alongside several LWG-accredited tanneries, Bronwyn’s manufacturing partners have signed a code of ethics agreement that aligns with the ETI (ethical trading initiative) standards and best practices.
