Last week I attended a really exciting event that I cannot wait to share with you all! Sophia Webster transformed their Chelsea store to showcase their newly upcoming SS19 collection and I went along to view it.
About Sophia Webster..
Sophia Webster is by far one of my favourite luxury shoe designers. Her collections are always so much fun, girlie and are always different to anything else you will find in the stores. Her shoes are bold, make a statement and really stand out from the crowd which I love! You will instantly recognise her signature styles such as the butterfly range and the sparkly candy heels. The brand has branched out over the last 6 years and now offer handbags, children’s footwear and bridal options in their collection. They also collaborated with sports brand Puma with a fabulous sneaker range in that classic Sophia Webster style.
A shoe addicts dream store..
There are 2 Sophia Webster boutiques in London. One in Mount Street and the other in Chelsea’s Sloane Avenue which is where I went to for the launch party. Both are absolutely beautiful and such a treat to shop in. I highly recommend visiting them if you are ever in London. As I walked into the store, I was surrounded by glossy white illuminated shelving, a pretty blush pink carpet, pink marble effect walls, velvet seating and of course a fabulous neon pink sign in the shape of a butterfly. For the event there was a little bar area where I sipped prosecco and had a little lemon macaron. So chic!
Towards the back of the store was another little seating area with a gorgeous flamingo chandelier hanging above. This was the start of a carpeted stairway which led down to the lower level. On the night, there were nail bars where you could have a complimentary manicure too! There was also more elegant seating downstairs with glass coffee table lined with fashion books as well as gold glass cabinets displaying more gorgeous heels.
I especially love the stiletto heel hangers on the walls which held some of their gorgeous clutch bags and leather accessories. This is such a fab idea.
The new SS19 collection..
The best part of the evening though, of course, was viewing the shoes. Rows and rows of stunning heels, boots and flats in an array of colours and textures. I love the attention to detail of every piece and how creative they all are. I am a huge fan of the butterfly range and this will continue into the new season but with brand new updated designs. Some of the butterflies were stitched with colourful threads and looked amazing.
Another gorgeous range featured Perspex straps that were decorated with chunky circular gems which I think is one of my favourite styles from the new collection. There were also styles which had pretty flat tied bows. These were on a sock boot, a stiletto and a pointed toe mule style.
There is a really fun, 70s inspired range which has rainbow coloured panels straps which will be great on a night out and for party season!
I also adore the crystal heel range. This has carried over from previous seasons but has been updated for SS19 with new colour options. The heel on this new design has an ombre effect with the shades of the crystals that cover it and it’s such a stunning look!
There were some amazing boots in the range as well as heels. I particularly liked a pair of black suede ankle boots which have a block heel, covered with silver and white chunky crystals and stones. The sparkle on these is incredible!
I had such a lovely evening meeting other shoe obsessed ladies such as myself and I could have walked out of the store with one of every design as I literally love them all. Sophia Webster has done it again! A fabulous collection and I cannot wait for these new styles to hit the stores.
