Sophia Webster AW15 … the show
If, like me, your shoe obsession wavers around the Imelda Marcos zone, and anything slightly pointy, vertiginously heeled or breathtakingly beautiful on the shoe front has you salivating, then you need to check out the Sophia Webster AW15 collection pronto. The designer is renowned for her quirky take on how a shoe should be at the best of times, but with her Freak Like Me collection she has delved into the rich and crazy world of circus arts and the uncanny. Think warped patterns and her usual splashes of fabulous fun and colour, throw it in a 90’s time machine, add a little Gwen Stefani mashed up with ska sounds for inspo and presto! You have her deliciously different shoes, in a nutshell.
The Sophia Webster AW15 presentation was one of the most fun shows I attended this London Fashion Week. The ingenious set was designed by Shona Heath and the styling put together by Victoria Young. With models bobbing around on trampettes to zany tunes and others working their inner marionette, fashionistas were spoilt for choice for their instagrammable moments.
Sophia Webster AW15 … the shoes
So what about the shoes? Well, the diminutive designer has surpassed herself once more. Not only were there shoes I would have snapped up right there and then – from heels to flats to sneakers. She also had me wishing I still had toddlers as there were some super cute teeny tiny shoes from her Evangeline range on show too.
I first fell in love with Sophia Websters designs a couple of years ago when I bought her Riko heels which are crazy comfy. Since then I’ve become quite besotted with her collections. When you see all these designs in one spot, it’s seriously like being a kid in a candy store.
I also loved her Coca-Cola inspired pieces… as my buddies will attest, I’m a bit of a fan of the fizzy stuff, so these heels had my name written all over them.
It’s not all about the heels for AW15 though, there are plenty of cute pointy flats, signature sneakers and super on trend over the knee boots too…
If you can’t wait till this collection hits the stores, take a peek below at some of my fave picks from the current Sophia Webster collection to be whetting your whistle on.
