Suede luxe to Fall

Pedro Garcia Xaide suede boots.

One of my favourite items to autumn is a beautiful pair of suede leather boots. With current trends, suede boots are found in all sorts of variations. A soft brushed leather that comes usually from the underside of lambskin, though these days, other types of skins are used such as goat, pig, calf and deer, the open pores of this leather means that it isn’t much waterproof or stain-proof. Still, the plush feel of suede boots is attractive and its suppleness allows for a relaxed though luxurious feel for the autumn.

Above are my current favourite suede boots from Pedro Garcia. I like the ruching details, platform front and sleek stiletto heels. The lighter colour is also a relief from the darker shades to be encountered in autumn / winter seasons.

Chloé Wraparound suede boots.

Chloé has a series of wraparound boots for their pre-Fall 2008 collection, where Paulo Melim Andersson (designer for Chloé pre-Fall 08) looked to Saint-Germain-des-Prés bohemian 70s for inspiration. The boots in the pre-Fall are slouchy, mostly suede with stacked-heels. Some are designed with an open toe. The dark brown suede pair above though has more structure, with closed rounded toe and tracked soles, which works better with the Swedish autumn and winter.

Betsey Johnson Willa II suede ankle boots.

Although from 2007, this Betsey Johnson Willa II suede still makes my style book for autumn this year because of its ties at the sides and decoratively printed soles!

And a staple in my own wardrobe is this pair of Biscay boots in purple berry, from DUO (UK). The colour is delicious and the fit is awesome!
