A new collection from Rose Rankin

Regular readers of this blog will be familiar with Rose Rankin but if you’re new to En Brogue, have a read here about this fab brand, started by a girl who just wanted some smart sneakers she could wear to work (we’ve all been there, right?!).

Rose Rankin Coney

As you can see from the fantastic pair of shoes on my feet, this season Rose has taken things up a notch with her colour palette, and the results are brilliant. I love the mix of pale pink and claret with a dash of mustard on the heel, and the gum sole is a fab addition. This style is the Coney low top, which I also have in white with black Dalmatian print, and plain white leather from previous collections. They are unbelievably comfortable and have worn really well with time. This season, they are also available in blue velvet with a lip motif on the heel which looks great.

If a slip-on is more your thing, check out the Crump sneaker, which comes in three block colour options. Or for a pair of party kicks, try Spike, with its rose gold toe cap and pompom feature. And Rose’s classic Colt runner has been updated in velvet and in fluorescent leopard print. What’s not to love about that, I ask you?!

When stationery and sneakers collide

From next week, you’ll be able to pick up a pair of plimsolls that are the result of American brand Keds teaming up with stationery label Rifle Paper Co. The five piece collection will be available exclusively in the UK from Anthropologie (I’ll add in the links for you when it’s live) and features whimsical floral prints fans of Rifle Paper Co. will love. Prices will range from Β£49 – Β£75.

Carnival kicks for the bank holiday

While I spend EVERY August bank holiday at the Isle of Wight scooter rally dancing to Northern Soul and ska, I know lots of you will be heading to Notting Hill for Carnival (or THE carnival as we call it here on the Isle of Wight; my home town of Ryde’s carnival is the oldest in the country, so we should know. I’ll just leave that there). So how cool that Nike has introduced a special Air Force 1 pack in celebration?! Originally released in 2003, the colours are based on Rio Carnivale. They’re a limited edition, so catch them while you can…
