Checks and Balances: Reintroducing Brunate

Checks and Balances: Reintroducing Brunate

Aug 24th 2018

The Brunate footwear brand draws inspiration from the lakeside Italian city of Como, a fashionable retreat frequented by tourists, aristocrats, and the wealthy. Designers and technicians team up to bring together luxury and modern innovation through state-of-the-art construction made possible by computer-aided design software. For nearly a century, the brand has produced eye-catching shoes in classic cuts and dynamic prints using the highest quality materials on the market. The six-step manufacturing process includes highly detailed drawings, hand stitching, and visual inspection of each item to ensure symmetry and pristine condition before boxing. The result is a meticulously crafted shoe that echoes Italy’s prestige in the fashion industry. We’re keeping our eyes on Brunate for the fall season and beyond. The new collection runs the gamut from sophisticated pumps to ankle boots in coveted patterns. You’ll find everything that you need to get the ball rolling on a new personal style at Hanig’s.

The fall season is all about duality.

Our new Brunate shoe collection combines masculinity and femininity to create something entirely new and exciting. English sophistication and Italian craftsmanship are played up by tactile materials, clean lines, and heritage styling. Be the best-checked woman in the room with the black Jimor ankle bootie and pump. 78053, 58228, 50732, 51016, and 48033 feature aptly placed houndstooth plaid and gingham motifs. A gentlewoman’s dream, each shoe is cut and sewn from fine Italian leather. The cylindrical heels offer an exquisite lift, ideal for calf-grazing skirts and tailored suits. 70190 and 70200 in timeless black suede are the most comfortable pumps that you’ll wear all year. The two feature softly pointed toes and mid-height heel shafts. You’ll gush over the dinar print and vamp peak details on 70200 and the splendid minimalism of 70190. We’re dreaming of both paired up with belted, longline blazers and scarf print tunic blouses recalling the power dressing movement of the 1980’s. 11396 channels masculine energy in a combination of metallic coated, smooth, and suede leathers. A monochromatic plaid-printed kiltie and heel up the ante to this otherwise classic oxford. Brogue detailing and a monk strap grace the front to satisfy your closet’s need for a bit of British elegance. Look smashing in this style under pleated pants and a mohair sweater on top accessorized by faux pearl drop earrings.
