Sophia Webster Fall 2013 Collection

Sophia-WebsterEven though Sophia’s technically still a burgeoning designer (this is only her label’s second season), she’s made her mark and has shown to be much more than Nicholas Kirkwoods former protégé. Using life-size papier-mâché flamingos cast in vibrant colors Sophia-Webster-Unicorn-clutchand Pantone color charts to surround herself with a permanent sense of whimsy within her London apartment, the environment is perfect for creating crazy Technicolor designs. Sophia has a way of imbuing all of her shoes with a sense of peculiarity and quirk while maintaining a commercially successful edge – though, at first, they might seem a bit over-the-top, it’s an over-the-top that everyone wants.

Luckily for us, her Fall 2013 collection sums up our adoration for Sophia Webster perfectly.The twenty-eight year old had this to say about her British Fashion Council-sponsored collection: “Fall 2013 is a bit of Jackson Pollock meets Marie Antoinette, but I was also inspired by films like Edward Scissorhands and Clueless.

Another glance at her imaginative designs would also show inspiration stemming from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, as well as The Wizard of Oz. Narnia-inspired hearts mix with Cher Horowitz-inspired plaids; sparkle-infused heels go head-to-head with iridescent, unicorn-horn leather finishes; multicolored baubles topping platforms and acting as the heels of chicly scalloped booties; tortoise-shell leather blends seamlessly with dramatically folded fringes ranging from midnight black to fuchsia; it’s a veritable cornucopia of ideas and inspiration, leaving every pair to trail a path through their own story. With the average heel size of the collection standing at 100mm, they’re made for long days and maximum impact.

However, if her quirky booties are a little too extreme for you, there is a wide range of d’Orsay pumps and kooky takes on traditional heels that would make Barbie jealous in a millisecond. Believe us, her sun-kissed skin would turn green with envy with just one glimpse of them on your feet. Why? They’re holographic and embroidered with ornate scalloped edging; they’re metallic and heart-printed with a sweetheart neckline for extra, saucy toe-cleavage; they’re polka dotted with a glitter-infused heels; they are all practical without losing their sense of eccentricity. Try wearing them into a boardroom meeting and not be met with a barrage of compliments (hint: it’s impossible).
