FANTASY FOREST, Sophia Webster

Sophia Webster (former assistant to Nicholas Kirkwood) unveiled her Fall/Winter 13 footwear and accessories collection during London Fashion Week in a Fantasy Forest described by WWD as “Edward Scissorhands meets rainbow Narnia meets ‘Clueless'”. One might also classify it as “Dr. Seuss Who-ville meets My Little Pony”. Regardless of hyper-real classification, the presentation and silhouettes are nothing short of fresh featuring hologram leathers, over-the-knee polka dots, kaleidoscope color-ways, and backless booties fastened with pop lacing. Webster delivers another season of cheeky femininity; creations for the modern bird with design queues reminiscent of eras past. –Savannah Todd
