On the tenth day of Christmas Yuppee gave to me Ten Sophia Webster Shoes,(Nine Statement Necklaces, Eight Liv Warfield Clutch Bags, Seven Swansea Boutiques, Six Golden Goose Essentials, Five Bond Rings! Four Calling Birds, Three French Men, Two Turtle-necks and a Partridge in a Pear Tree).
Forget candy-canes and chocolate coins galore this Christmas because Sophia Webster’s shoes are the sweetest thing you’ll want under your tree. Webster’s creations are the closest shoes can get to confectionery – created in colourful poppy shades and candy stripes, with bows, ruffles and heels made from shiny baubles- these sweeties wouldn’t look out of place in Willy Wonker’s Chocolate Factory.
And so, although we here at Yuppee think you’re sweet enough, we offer you Ten Sophia Webster Shoes on this the tenth day of Christmas.
Sophia Webster: fashion’s answer to the Christmas fable’s shoe-maker. She is the shoe world’s new rising star. Her name has been circulating round the fashion world for the past few months and she has already begun to garner a celebrity following, but her eponymous footwear label is set to attract widespread popularity now it’s been given the seal of approval from three of fashion’s key retailers – Dover Street Market, Harvey Nichols and net-a-porter.com.
Mentored and nurtured by Nicholas Kirkwood, Sophia Webster became Kirkwood’s protege; allowing the London-born designer, production facilities at her disposal for her debut, spring/summer 2013 collection that we present to you today. Her whimsical shoe and accessories line, which the designer says is inspired by “anything and everything,” launched this fall during London Fashion Week and features graphic prints, unexpected cut-outs and eye-popping color combos that are fit for Rainbow Brite.
We have chosen 10 foot-huggers from her Rio-inspired shoe collection, Ooh pretty shoes, that bring a new twang to the realm of pastels.
Oh, those pretty shoes. Shoe-maker eat your heart out!
