The moment we have all been waiting for is around the corner and Sophia Webster’s collaboration with J.Crew is available to buy starting early May. Forget rent and food and all the unnecessary things in life and focus on the prints, the polka dots, the cut-outs, the gingham…oh the list is endless. Miss Webster really has brought every element of her design personality into this collection and it is still ridiculously wearable.
Since going it alone in September 2012, after assisting Nicholas Kirkwood, Sophia Webster has well and truly cemented her name into the world of British fashion. With an aesthetic that is both challenging, yet classic, it was no surprise when she won Emerging Accessories Award at last years British Fashion Awards.
We are not alone in our love, though, as J.Crew’s president and Creative Director Jenna Lyons is just as gushing about Ms Webster as we are: "Sophia Webster is one of the most exciting and talented British designers. Her shoes are like miniature sets — a beautiful world for your feet to spend the day in. Each shoe tells a unique story."
There is no argument there and there seems to be something for everyone. Although if you’re looking for a total bargain, you may have to give yourself a bit of a shake, as the starting prices are around £240 up to £540, but we can guarantee that these special collaboration pieces will sell out quickly, so we need to decide which ones we want to get now.
Sophia Webster for J.Crew will be launching in J.Crew stores and online at the beginning of May 2014.
