Sophia Webster pops up

In London’s Burlington Arcade

More places to buy Sophia Webster shoes can only possibly be a good thing as for as we’re concerned – which is why we are thrilled that the shoe designer, along with her footwear confections, has ‘popped up’ in London’s historic Burlington Arcade.

And, believe us, the juxtaposition of Webster’s super-fun, brightly-coloured, unashamedly girlie creations with the calm stateliness of their temporary home makes for quite the shopping experience.


The past 12 months have been a meteoric rise to footwear fame for Webster, who formerly assisted ELLE Accessory Designer of the Year Nicholas Kirkwood and only cut loose with her pre-SS13 collection – which is selling in the pop-up, alongside her SS13 mainline and exclusives from the new pre-fall collection. She already counts Rihanna and Chloe Moretz as fans.

Says ELLE accessories editor Donna Wallace, ‘The thing I love about Sophia’s designs is that they’re playful with a real sense of humour. They’re really sugary and girly, but it never tips into twee. They’re the shoe equivalent of a great cocktail!’

Cheers to that.
