Causally Anti-Fad. That's the ethos behind the Melbourne born women's footwear imprint, Department of Finery. With lofty standards delivered through manufacturing in Italy, Department of Finery (or D.O.F) has slowly but surely been sneaking into women's wardrobes since 2013. Their meteoric rise can be largely attributed to one thing; a carefully considered approach to the time-honoured tradition of shoemaking.

Against the tidal wave of fast-fashion trends, fads and short-attention spans, D.O.F set out to channel their passion for footwear through genuine and rewarding means of bringing classic shapes to her. In a profoundly premium manner, D.O.F partner with a range of small to medium sized Italian factories in the eastern region of Le Marche to produce their aspirational collections. From design to development, D.O.F ensures that the finest leathers sourced from the leading tanneries in Europe are met with exacting standards and discerning craftsmanship. The resulting shoes and footwear are not only premium in craftsmanship but classic in their aesthetic.

Attempting to provide long-lasting choices for women in their everyday pursuits, the D.O.F collection at Hype DC features models that are extensions of classic court-side footwear. The Dixie, Stella and Luna all express iconic lines, crafted in supple leathers and contrasting detailing and effects. Meanwhile, the Belmont and Willow reflect more modern aesthetics, with a platform midsole underscoring well-appointed uppers. Suitable for almost every wardrobe, the D.O.F collection at Hype DC will love your feet longer than any equivalent. Where will you wear yours?

The women's Department Of Finery footwear collection is now available online and at Hype DC stores.
