I was a little bit in heaven last Thursday. I got invited to the launch event for the Ted & Muffy A/W collection at the newly renovated and refitted store on Milsom St in Bath.
The evening began with some nibbles, Prosecco and a browse around the store, before we were given an introduction to the shoes and the story behind Ted & Muffy. The brand has come from what used to be DUO, but it’s been given a serious makeover in terms of their offering and the general look and feel.
The shop was lovely too, with lots of exposed brickwork and a clean white finish that, with the lighting, set off the shoes and and boots beautifully.
And can we just take a moment to appreciate the branding. I love it! The drawings are just lovely and fit brilliantly with the whimsical, yet classic, style of the store and the boots themselves.
The brogues were beautiful too. A girl can never have too many brogues… (pretty sure that’s a well known saying somewhere).
We were invited to try on any pair we liked, and although I was totally torn between over-the-knee boots and a pair of lace-up ankle boots, in the end the over-the-knee style won me over. I am totally indecisive most of the time, and the amazing choice didn’t make it any easier!
The leather is so soft, and they fit like a glove. The expert fitters were on hand in the store to make sure I got the perfect fitting pair – they not only make sure you’re wearing the correct shoe size but check your calf width as well, to make sure that the boots look and feel great. This pair are the Quest boots. And when I wear them I certainly feel like I can go anywhere and do anything!!
Having not been exposed to the Ted & Muffy brand much before I am a complete convert now. The shoes are expensive, but they appear to be very well made, and so I’ll be checking out how they fare over the rainy Bristolian winter. If they survive that, they’ll survive anything! Add to that the amazing sounding plans for the next season, it looks like Ted & Muffy are on to a winner.
An outfit post with these boots will be on here very soon!!
