The Alba Mule

The Alba mule is a modern interpretation of a perennial style, the classic mule. With a sharp, elongated square toe and a unique stacked leather heel, the Alba is simple in nature, yet, anything but ordinary. Offering everyday refinement and ease, the Alba is a wardrobe necessity that will turn heads with every wear. This silhouette is for the woman who loves mules and is looking for a new shape to experiment with this season.

Day

When dressing for autumn days filled with golden hues and unpredictable temperatures throughout the day, layering is essential. From weekday to weekend, this elevated, relaxed look can take you from morning to night in style. For a grounded ensemble, pair neutral tones that contrast with the Alba mule in desert

For a casual on-the-go moment, the Alba pairs beautifully with voluminous and structured minimalist pieces. Emphasize their feminine and sleek nature by pairing them with full-length wide-leg jeans for a playful juxtaposition. To complete the effortless outfit, pair an ankle-length trench coat with a staple light sweater and blazer underneath.


Work

Heading back to the office and have a full day of meetings? For a professionally polished outfit that could also take you to dinner and drink after 9-5, go with the Alba mule in black. Impress all day with an undeniably chic and smart look by mixing textures when styling. 

The Alba shows off its angular side when paired with cropped black leather trousers. Soften the masculine details by pairing a bright-colored button-up and laidback knitted cardigan. Finish with a crisp, oversized wool coat to elude a mysteriously cool feeling.

Evening

For a night on the town with friends or date night, go for a laidback, flirty look that can handle a walk around the city, dinner out, and the wine bar afterward. For an unexpected touch of refined glimmer, style the Alba mule in copper with oversized feminine silhouettes for a playful feeling.

Balance out the geometry of the Alba mule with a flowy, tiered babydoll midi dress in a neutral tone. For a touch of warmth on chilly fall nights, add a cozy wool mid-calf coat in a complementing tone.

The Trini Loafer

The Trini loafer is an ironic take on a classic menswear shape. Featuring a square toe, chunky welted lug bottom, and an exaggerated oversized leather chain-link detail, the Trini loafer delivers an effortless, informal-cool feeling to any attire. This silhouette is for the woman who wants to push her wardrobe to the next level with the addition of something modern, yet classic.

Day

For cooler temperatures and days filled with errands around the city, choose a comfortable shoe like the Trini loafer. With a thick sole and closed back, these loafers can handle it all. For a masculine, elevated tom-boy look, contrast the sleek Trini loafer in black + patent or Trini loafer in black + croco with crisp white and camel-toned pieces.

Classic straight leg denim adds a relaxed feeling when paired with the Trini loafer, while a structured button-down and wool coat counter with an elevated effect. For the bold conversational dresser, layer a knitted tank top adorned with subtle detailing for an unexpected twist.

Work

Busy productive workdays back in the office call for form and functionality in dressing. Opt for closet staples that are comfortable, voluminous, and tailored to contrast the chunky sole of the Trini loafer

For a boyish undertone that feels put together, pair the Trini loafer in black + croco with wide-leg cropped trousers. Add a layer of sleekness and play up the monochrome effect by adding a black blouse with sleeve detail. To create an offbeat yet practical feel, add a contrasting knitted sweater vest on top.

Evening

If a dressy night on the town is on the calendar, go for understated simplicity. Perfect for dinner with family or co-workers, balance a classic feminine feeling with the masculine detailing of the Trini loafer in black + croco.

The croco adds an interesting dose of texture to an otherwise minimalist look. For a formal flair, wear a collared midi dress with subtle detailing like pleats, a tie waist, or oversized sleeves to keep the outfit anything but average.
