Be still my beating heart! That genius of shoe design, Rupert Sanderson, is now at my fave online shoe retailer, Spartoo, and I must admit that I am so excited. The man who combines the best of Italian craftsmanship with his own unique, and often avant-garde design is one of my favourite designers. And with awards such as the British Fashion Councils Accessory Designer of the year and Elle’s Style Award for best accessory designer, this is clearly a man who understands that an outfit often stands and falls on the ability to choose the right footwear.
Spartoo is currently playing host to a whole range of Rupert’s amazing shoes, heeled sandals and boots. There are some seriously sey skyscraper heels – the sort that induce vertigo, but these also sit alongside very cool and sophisticated wedge heeled boots. I just adore the drama of the Flamente sandal, which have a very Spanish edge to them, whilst the Glen boots have unusual quilted detail that makes them stand apart from other boots.
And, if you are looking for a total bargain, that you will find it hard to stop stroking. let alone wear, how about the Treen, which now have an amazing 70%, reduced from £504.99 to just £151.50 – the bargain of 2013 maybe.
