Sophia Webster - SS17


“Spring/summer 2017 came about because I was watching Dreamgirls and then randomly I watched Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, and I thought it would be good to create a world where they join,” she smiled as she gave us a preview of her newest collection, “So for my pre and main collections I was looking at birds of paradise, mixed with some Sixties chunky heels and detailing. That's why I called the show The Dolly Birds Of Paradise.” - Sophia Webster

Sophia Webster SS17 - collection inspiration

Sophia Webster SS17 - My favourite styles

In true Webster style the collection is made up of brand classics (like the Chiara), updated in new fabrications and colours alongside some gorgeous new silhouettes. Bright colours, monochromes and lashings of metallics (gold & rose gold) mixed with exquisite prints - peacock, birds of paradise and tropical leaves. A broad collection, of heart shaped perspex heels, muled slides, mid heights and chunky curved platforms, all on display in gilded cages.

The standout styles for me are the black/white humbug striped heels, with the rose gold hardware and monochrome tassels along with the Effie platform, which has the most amazing tri-print silk upper (lead image on this post). I also love that on some of the collections key looks a lower alternative is offered, so everyone can join the conga line and strut their stuff in the most amazing shoes.

Sophia Webster SS17 - the sneakers

Interspursed with the glitz and glamour are some great sneaker styles - still incorporating the flair of Webster design through prints and the embellished butterflies but offer something for the less girly girls out there. How cute would these tropical sneakers be on tube for your daily commute!

No detail has been spared in this presentation, from the gilded cages showcasing the shoes and models, to the braided ropes and tropical plants. This kind of attention to detail really brings the collection to life along with the soulful Motown music playing in the background and the flamboyant models, dressed in bold feathers like tropical birds or chilling out in gold cages dressed like go-go girls from the 60's.

Sophia Webster SS17 - the fashion weekend tote

And if all this wasn't enough excitement for one week, Sophia has also designed the London Fashion Week tote bag featuring the beautiful peacock print from the collection. - wish i was going just to get one of these!
