Dopamine Dressing, Everyday Glam and the comeback of Grunge are among the most exciting fashion themes for A/W 22/23 and offer new perspectives for the shoe and accessories ranges. Comfort, cocooning and classy looks remain essential for the season.


Outdoor vibes all over: nylon and paddings not only define the silhouettes of puffers, waistcoats and trousers, but also the bags and shoe styles of the new season. Feather-light padding and quilting come in feel-good colours from pink to sky blue to purple next winter. Hybrid snowboots and sneakers made of nylon with a rough, dyed-through tread sole look casual.


A mesh-up of streetwear, outdoor and grunge. Sampling fabrics, patterns, styles makes winter styling look very individual and edgy. The accessories to go with it: Platform lace-up boots, mountaineering, western and farm boots with striking soles, moccasin boots and long-shaft boots in velour and contrasting shafts in rib-knit and fur. Fur bags and retro crossbody bags in handcrafted look are adorned with knitted details and patches.


Colour as a mood-lifter: statement boots in brightly coloured patent, snow boots and lace-up boots with contrasting soles and square-toed pumps with block heels go for colourful statements. Geometric colour blocking is very popular for shoppers, pochettes and tote bags alongside monochrome all-over looks. Miniature bags and wrist bags in signal colours add a fun factor!



Retro sports also influence the winter collections. Striking striped patterns, handcrafted finishes and sporty accents give Essentials an exciting appeal. Key products: Chelsea boots, loafers and high-top sneakers on smooth or ribbed platform soles, in material and colour blocking and with expressive black/white contrasts.


Black shows up with power in the coming autumn and winter. The shoe remains a combat boot in all black. Worker boots and chelseas with rustic soles and bold tread bottoms are joined by monochrome overknees on platforms. The focus of the details: matt/shine effects, chains and metal details as well as buckles, buckles, buckles.



Nightdressing as a source of inspiration for daily glam: glitter and sequins, patent and leather, silver and moonshine become suitable for the day. High gloss mixes up shoes and accessories. Metallics like silver and gold and jewellery details add highlights. Slim ankle boots and party pumps on spiked heels take the look to the extreme.
