At Dear Frances, we want you to wear your shoes all day, every day, season after season. Each pair is hand-made in Italy using age-old techniques that have been handed down through generations of highly skilled artisan shoemakers. We source the finest quality Italian leathers and European textiles to produce modern classics, designed to last.
Dear Frances was founded with the clear objective of offering luxury, designer classics to modern women. We focus on bringing the highest level of design and craftsmanship, while slowing the fashion cycle and leading the way for socially conscious businesses. We work closely with our team of artisan shoemakers in Italy, utilising sustainable materials and processes to develop a new kind of luxury - a luxury that seeks to slow the fashion cycle, a luxury that focuses on craftsmanship and a luxury that helps to increase the integrity of our fashion choices. Focusing on a timeless wardrobe, where modern minimalism takes centre stage with sleek textures, architectural silhouettes and refined details. Strong and elegant, we find empowerment in essential shapes and tonal hues that form the basis of a classic wardrobe. We are energised by designs we can invest in now and wear forever. And we are inspired by versatile shapes that we find ourselves reaching for time and again
“Timeless pieces to invest in now and wear forever. Let's slow fashion down.”
— Jane Frances
The new season celebrates form and function through a thoughtfully edited collection of powerful silhouettes, each with a specific focus on block colours, texture and refined prints. With pieces designed to carry you through day and night, the collection features snake effect Italian leathers, soft wool blends, artisanal techniques and grounding shapes to wear every day.
