For his Fall/Winter 2017-18 collection, Rupert Sanderson chose to focus on two main elements: classic cuts and the star icon. For girls in search of timeless pieces, sandals, boots, sling-backs and pumps were edited in classic designs. For those who want to shine under all circumstances, stars appear either shooting on sandals or applied to pumps. Discover Rupert Sanderson shoes.
In 2001, Rupert Sanderson presented his first luxury shoe collection and launched his eponymous brand. He is both famous for his love of sleek lines and for his original designs. Stars, straps, cutouts, ornaments…something for everyone. In 2012, the designer imagined a capsule collection for the Asian market, called Rupert Sanderson Gold. The golden heel and a pebble-shaped ornament line was so successful that it soon became a sister brand and was renamed R. Sanderson.
When he was younger, Rupert Sanderson first worked in advertisement. But he quickly realized his disinterest for the matter and signed up at Cordwainers College in London to learn shoemaking basics. Between his two years of classes, he took a road trip across Italy to visit potential factories. After graduating, the young shoe designer worked at Sergio Rossi and at Bruni Magli before returning to England where he founded his label in 2001. Seven years later, he won the British Fashion Award for Accessory Designer of the Year.
