It's a new season and you can't be surprised that there is a new IT shoe designer. British footwear designer, Sophia Webster started as an assistant to Nicholas Kirkwood and debuted her first solo collection just a few seasons ago. The new designer already has huge distribution and can be found in Saks, Net-A-Porter and Nordstrom. As a matter of fact, she just debuted a capsule collection for J. Crew during fashion week. The J. Crew collection will launch spring 2014.
Webster's shoe designs are playful, unique and exude confidence. Her style closely resembles the kitsch of Charlotte Olympia with the sexiness of Alaia. This season we are especially loving the almost completely sold out Riko cutout patent-leather and suede sandals. They are both edgy but feminine. They also play well with the still-going-strong black and white fall trend. These shoes are dress-up ready but we also love how fashion blogger Annebelle Fleur paired them with jeans and a blazer.
