Accessories Report: Sophia Webster SS16

Sophia Webster, a former assistant to celebrated cordwainer Nicholas Kirkwood, is turning fashionable heads with her fabulous shoe and handbag collection.

We were convinced that there would be another bellicose color attack at her spring presentation this week in London.  And we were right.

This season, the lurid designer turned to the vibrancy of ocean life and marine motifs for inspiration.  Her spring collection takes inspiration from deep-sea corrals, seashells, and other salient flora to bring to life a glorious world of mermaids.  That is the first thing the show attendees saw – mermaids lounging in larger-than-life pearl shells.  Not a complete surprise though – this is a designer who has recently collaborated on a show collection with Barbie, and said yes to bridal.

Our favourite piece without a doubt was the thigh high sandal with multi colored netting up the leg and thigh.  That ought to catch some attention – pun intended.
