Step into Summer with Bourgeois Boheme’s SS15 Collection

Amanda Cappucino Model (15)


Shoes have always been one of the number-one reasons why we hit our overdraft limit – and Bourgeois Boheme sure isn’t making things easier for our purse strings. The UK brand’s new collection is everything we’d want from a SS range: playful, comfortable, colourful and easy to match.

Crafted from animal-free materials (not even animal glue – no trace of cruelty at all), Bourgeois Boheme shoes are PVC-free, so kind to the planet. For SS15, the brand has introduced a woven texture of cotton and paper – this pattern, dubbed the ‘Florentine’, adds a unique charm with a sustainable edge. And hey, Bourgeois Boheme styles are water-resistant, so perfect if you live in a chilly, rainy climate.

All Bourgeois Boheme shoes (or BoBos, as the brand calls them) are designed exclusively, always incorporating the label’s distinctive element – the lotus flower. The brand makes sure to regularly visit their factories in Portugal, meeting the teams of craftsmen and women to oversee manufacturing processes. Skilled artisans make every pair using traditional techniques, thus maintaining craftsmanship and quality that blends with creative design to form the distinctive style of Bourgeois Boheme.

Our favourite SS15 styles are wearable and vibrant, like the above Amanda and Matilda ranges. But the collection also features after-dark heels, like the below Courtney sandals – just add a LBD and you’re good to go!

But the collection isn’t limited to women only. The vegan man has never been this spoiled for choice: Bourgeois Boheme has created a varied range (ie not just black!) to cater to the needs of compassionate gentlemen.

But what really caught our eye was the story behind the Eloise flats. Featuring a vintage-inspired hand-drawn print, Eloise is a special shoe: Bourgeois Boheme has paired up with Team Badger to protest against UK’s badger cull – a part of the proceeds from Eloise will go to this worthwhile cause. So you may actually be shopping to save animals! Find out more here.

If this isn’t the perfect reason to go shoe shopping, we don’t know what is! See more of the collection here.
