Rupert Sanderson AW11 press day

Sorry to be predictable but I fell in lust at the Rupert Sanderson press day. There was so much to covet from the classic, spindle thin courts, platforms and ankle boot shapes to asymmetric kitten heels, mesh details and soft squishy loafers.

These beautiful cornflower blue Victoriana shoe boots are such a statement shoe. On the surface, they have a lot going on with the high maintenance fabric, potentially dangerously thin heel, lace up and ruffles but there is just something about them, they’re just crying out to be worn and admired by strangers. 

Speaking of dangerous heels, how sexy are these? These sweet mary-janes with subtly sexy cut outs and a killer heel really caught my eye. The red python skin ones were my definite favourites. 

There were a few different incantations of the classic court shoe. What I love about Rupert Sanderson is that he has such a keen eye for detail. The gold and pink pair have a plaited platform to add a little texture and interest whereas the pair below are cut quite low on the side.  

In a bit of a shock twist in this post (a tad overdramatic?) I actually really liked a pair of flats. The loafers were just so soft, squishy and comfortable. Far from boring though, these statement flats come in leopard print or with metal bullet tassels. More shoes need bullet tassels…

I took a lot of detail shots! I liked the contrast and contradictions within the collection, details included sweet velvet bows and futuristic neon mesh, stacked platforms, clashing demi wedges and pleated suede contrasting with shiny patent.
