Sophia Webster makes my heart flutter with her ‘stop and look at me’ butterfly shoes.
Butterflies featured in Sophia’s S/S14 collection and their back, bolder than ever, in neon brights for Autumn/Winter 2014. Sophia’s not the first person to take inspiration from nature; Sarah Burton featured bees and bugs at Alexander McQueen, Gucci have a long-held love affair with horses and all things equestrian and Charlotte Olympia’s kitty heels need no introduction.
It seems Sophia is becoming synonymous with beautiful, multicoloured butterflies. While most designers just including animals/insects in a subtle way, perhaps in a print or appliqué, Sophia puts the humble butterfly center stage. In this seasons collection the Chiara heels actually have wings!
