Rupert Sanderson



I love the London-based shoe designer Rupert Sanderson and his design philosophy less is more. Not to mention that he excels at designing high heels that are not only beautiful, but comfortable—an extraordinary (but not inexpensive) find.

After studying footwear design at the world-renowned Cordwainers College, Sanderson honed his skills working with Sergio Rossi and Bruno Magli in Bologna and formed his own company in August 2001. The 41-year-old designer describes his clientele as 'women of substance who don't define themselves by what they wear'.

Every Rupert Sanderson shoe is named after a variety of Daffodil and my current favorite is Espada (pictured above).
