New shoe designers are setting the tone for the spring 2013 season and it seems that they mean business as designer Sophia Webster demonstrates through her latest shoe collection. The designer that graduated from the Royal College of Art and Cordwainers in 2010 evolved under the wing of Nicholas Kirkwood and it seems that her time spent as design assistant for the renowned shoe designer served her well as her spring 2013 shoe collection is absolutely stunning.
Apparently, Sophia Webster’s signature soft, single sole designs were infused with pretty pastel pigments which give the entire collection a fresh and feminine allure that feels so different from everything we’ve seen so far this season. Although the shoes are crafted following soft line patterns, the interesting colors used give a bold, edgy chicness to the designs, making them a perfect option for the honeys that love to own shoes that pack a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ that makes them stand out of the crowd.
The classic shapes with a modern twist were inspired by the dresses of the Asian ethnic group Hmong, by deconstructed Aztec prints that deliver a high visual kick and by the style that characterizes Yayoi Kusama, an 83 year old Japanese artist known for the dense patterns used in her creations. Sophia Webster fused all these interesting elements with a bit of tropical hotness, using palm tree patterns and sunrise to sunset pigments, thus giving the designs a sizzling, playful allure. Featuring varied designs including classic pumps, innovative heart shaped heel shoes, stiletto heels, wedges, peep toe sandals and flats, the collection aims to attract the attention of women who adopt different styles, so dare to browse through the fun yet feminine shoe collection signed Sophia Webster for spring 2013 and see if any of the designs match your personality perfectly!
