Dune was previously part of the Browning Group that pulled out of footwear supply a few weeks ago.

Browning Group's license division B-Brands supplied Fullcircle and Morgan footwear.
Parts of Mosaic—Karen Millen, Warehouse, Coast, Oasis and brand Anoushka G—have been bought by chairman Derek Lovelock and management, backed by Icelandic bank Kaupthing.
