SHOES GLORIOUS SHOES! What woman in their right mind doesn't love them a lil bit of foot candy? And lets face it footwear doesn't get more edible than the cute creations of Sophia Webster

Graduating with an MA in footwear from the renowned Royal College Of Art Sophia went on to work as design assistant for none other than Nicholas Kirkwood before launching her debut collection for SS13. Webster's penchant for playful designs have rapidly earned her some serious candy coloured stripes within the biz. We're talking crazy cut-outs, zig-zags, polka dots, flamingos and palm tree silhouettes that have the likes of Solange, Anna Dello Russo and Rihanna hot on Sophia's heels. Pun TOTES intended.

Last week the lovely Sophia invited me down to the launch of her very first pop-up store in the rather plush Burlington ArcadeWe sipped piƱa colada-filled pineapples and pirate punch courtesy of Mahiki whilst negotiating the two-floor store which houses an abundance of bold and beautiful shoes in a surrounding that literally screams Sophia. Neon signs, nineties pop paraphernalia, love hearts and of course flamingos on windows and walls. Sophia's pop-up will pop-down on 18th August so if I were you I'd quick march it over to Mayfair and treat your feet to something sweet.

Are YOU a fan of Sophia's fizzy fun footwear???


  1. Not really my cup of tea but they sure are fun, quirky and unique to look at.
