Since launching in 2014, Swedish brand Totême has built a faithful fan base with its pared-back collections of go-to uniforms. The womenswear label by blogger-turned-designer Elin Kling and her husband, Karl Lindman, is worn by the likes of actress Alicia Vikander and Glossier founder Emily Weiss, who admire its boxy-shaped separates and luxurious knitwear, all in a neutral palette.
The Totême offering also includes footwear and the duo created one of summer’s most in-demand shoes: an elegant flip-flop with a low, slender heel. For autumn/winter, the Stockholm-based house looks set to strike again with another covetable design.
The Wide Shaft boot, which lands online on October 31 and already has its own mailing list, is knee-high – a style that swept the season’s runways in a prevailing 1970s mood. But it’s the practical low heel, elongated toe and wider-than-average leg that makes these boots stand out. Available in plain black (€760) or mock-croc leather (€810), the shape is ideal for tucking trousers into or pairing with mid-length skirts and dresses.
