A SCREENPLAY: Run the show this season
Creating scenes of connection and drama, and further exploring the rich heritage and warmth of Merchant1948, we present our AW19 campaign - A Screenplay. Modern essentials have been updated with a subtle dash of drama with burgundy hues and pinhead stud detailing. Leopard print, snake effect leather, and buckles take centre-stage with our scene-stealers, while royal tones of deep emerald, navy and blush are this season's 'it' palette.
For a touch of swagger and romance, we're channeling the aesthetics of the West through ornate buckles, cognac leather and sturdy heels.
From the rich red of a velvet curtain to the deep emerald and navy hues of the costume wardrobe, our palette this season is inspired by the jewel tones of the theatre.
Symbolic of theatre's femme fatale and vixens, leopard print takes centre stage as a statement print this season. Adding a dash of drama to even the simplest outfit, it's a pattern that plays a key supporting role in your wardrobe.
One of our favourite autumnal hues, mustard is a key player in our collection this season - injecting a subtle touch of wearable colour to your look (and a little bit of extra flavour).
Looking for drama? Try feature buckles and statement snake effect leather. We've also played with cut-out detailing this season, so show a little skin.
A main player in the cast of your winter wardrobe, as always we've utilised quality craftmanship and timeless design to create our boot range this season.
Essential footwear with something extra? We've given some of our go-to-styles a modern spin this season, exploring the darker side of autumn. Discover our new burgundy leather, pinhead stud detailing and crisp monochromes now.
Your favourite sneakers (or they soon will be), Deuce combine contemporary style with innovative comfort - plus they're designed in New Zealand! This season sees a new hero material (corduroy!) in dusky rose and cool grey.
Proudly designed right here in New Zealand, DualCore footbed technology is the cornerstone of Deuce sneakers, sitting alongside materials like premium leather and classic cotton canvas. A $5 donation from every full priced pair of Deuce sneakers sold is made to our Young Hearts Project charity initiative.
Every good wardrobe needs a pair (or three) of elevated leather footwear for special events or simply upping your game. Whether you're an oxford man or prefer streamlined dress boots, the secret to the perfect pair is a sharp silhouette and the sleekest leather.
The key to Bull Boxer's style and wearability - Dutch design and Portuguese craftmanship. With quality leather, quirky details and functional soles, their range transcends occasion - going from desk to drinks with ease (so you can focus on more important things).
The Portuguese sure know footwear, and their craftsmanship is some of the best in the world! Our Arturo range champions wearability and uses quality, premium leather to elevate modern classics to something special.
Want shoes that really go the distance? Our Michel range is handcrafted in Spain using the traditional Goodyear Welt technique (invented way back in 1871) which means they can be resolved again and again. Not only do they have endurance, but these premium leather shoes embody timeless style too.
As handsome as they are hard-wearing, Rosso Fiorentino footwear boasts the famously sturdy Vibram soles. This range is the final word in premium Italian craftsmanship, and every pair is handmade by third generation shoemakers in the small town of Montecatini.
