I love Rupert Sanderson. Altho I haven't met him personally, I like everything about him, especially his shoes. And my visit to his recent press day was just so lovely in every way: sunny and light and pretty and his colleagues are just so nice. His design ethos is 'less is more' and yet what I saw in that sunshiney room was such a variety of styles, shapes, colours, textures: each a sculptural work of art.
When I first met Dolly Jones, editor of UK Vogue.com, what I met first were her favourite Sanderson sandals, the Estelle, in our mutual favourite, pale turquoise.
But really, at the moment what I'm loving is pink. Hot pink, with orange and a bit of black, or pale ballet pink with white, or black. And some green. And I loved the way that while it was technically next Autumn/Winter's collection, I could happily wear everything now, and into the summer.
Thank you to Alex for the invite, the perfect pistachio macaron, for the option to have a complimentary manicure or pedicure (which I stupidly declined), and for not minding me putting the shoes on the same table as the food.
