Never was the song “I’ll Bring You Flowers” more appropriate than at Sophia Webster‘s SS14 presentation. Through the sprawling pathways of Regent’s Park’s Inner Circle, Webster set up camp at the Secret Garden and Katy B stepped in to serenade fashion’s movers and shakers with the Garage classic. Yes, the rain came down heavier than ever but that didn’t stop the hardened fashion fans from supporting their favourite footwear star of the moment. The stunning, multi-coloured flora and fauna overtook the entire garden and was housed under a rainproof canopy but to see the shoes themselves, you had to look a little closer. Along the path they were placed in hanging baskets or on top of flower bed, but when you get into the space the flowers crept up around day beds and hanging swings that the cutest models lolled around on.
As for the shoes themselves they clearly had inspiration from the outdoors with ladybird flecked heels and perspex mule heels in pastels dotted with clouds taking pride of place,and knee-high heels in sky blue that made us squeal. Some of Sophia’s most exciting pieces were her speech bubble-like bags declaring “YOU BUGGIN.” The models themselves had been made over in the cutest way with striking hair dos that pretended to be antennas and kept with the whole presentation’s vibe bursting with girlish fun.
Now, the only questions remains, when on earth are they coming our way?
