Sophie Webster Shows Cartoon Fun Footwear and Whimsical Style at Her Circus Showcase
Fashion One invites you to join us as we visit the Sophia Webster presentation at London Fashion Week for autumn winter 2015. The London based luxury footwear designer has gained attention for her playful pop coloured shoes and accessories and her unique showcase continued to impress.
Enlisting the help of renowned set designer Shona Heath, the venue was transformed into a trippy Piccadilly Circus meets Cirque du Soleil space with a reinvented Eros statue and references to the classic London red phone boxes. Amongst the stunning displays there were also live contortionists and models wearing costumes based on the Bauhaus Triadic Ballet combined with the palette and eye-catching pom pom features of the bright and vibrant collection itself.
We speak to Sophia Webster herself who explains her inspiration for the new season’s look. Originally being influenced by the band No Doubt’s early 90s albums which featured a heavy ska influence, hence the black and white checkerboard prints, which then led her to think about harlequin prints and circus textiles. These themes were mixed with colorful pop styling and sassy attitude in a array of high heels, sandals and quirky flats.
Checkerboard, leopard print and snakeskin patterns mixed amongst neons and rich tones in a mishmash of whimsical styles. Speech bubble bags and clear compartments added further pop culture elements and brought cartoonish vibrancy bursting into the real world.
