Nicholas Kirkwood’s protegee, 27 year old Sophie Webster is gorgeous. She has sandy hair and cool confident Bette Davis eyes and a Mona Lisa smile. The extremely talented designer has an eye for chic, festive island inspired heels that are as dramatic as they are tropical and cheerful. Yes it is the era of the ‘manrepelling’ zany statement shoe with funky designers like Charlotte Olympia, Nicholas Kirkwood, Brian Atwood and Tabitha Simmons just to name a few of the crazy successful lineup of kooky shoe designers. And Webster’s heels are no exception they are as vibrant and fun as they are coveted with incredibly appealing in their candy colors and flirty designs. The shoes are akin to those birds of a paradise for your feet. An aesthetic of island life meets club life meets fifth avenue debutante. Webster’s footwear is available at net-a-porter, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Kirna Zabete and a few other select luxury boutiques. According to a recent interview the designer did with NY mag’s Thecut she revealed that she was a boogie-woogie-oogie-ing competitive disco dancer which maybe also had an influence on the wunderkind’s glitzy platform shoes. It’s time to Get Down With Webster.
