I love Rupert Sanderson shoes, and I love Florence + The Machine. Rupert Sanderson has some pretty awesome shoes. I hope to own a pair some day. Florence + The Machine makes some amazing music. The ruby red haired singer is pretty big in the UK, but they sell her cd on the US iTunes store. I am glad I bought it because the songs are really amazing. Pop music is really changing in Europe. I hope it starts to change in the US as well. Here is a picture Rupert Sanderson’s PR sent me of Florence in these powder blue platform shoes called the Plato. Those shoes are so heavenly. Le swoon. Le sigh.

RUPERT SANDERSON FOR KARL LAGERFELD SPRING / SUMMER 2010 Rupert Sanderson is proud to announce his collaboration for the second season running with fashion maestro, Karl Lagerfeld. After the massive success Rupert had with the Autumn/Winter 2009 collection for Mr. Lagerfeld, Rupert welcomed the chance to work with Karl again. This season, Rupert completely re-interpreted two of his best selling styles Asteroid and Finesse. To give the shoe the futuristic update that Lagerfeld wanted for his collection, Rupert decided to design the shoe with his fashion-forward geometric heel, inspired by the Italian architect Gio Ponti. The ankle straps have also been altered so that they loop around under the sole and are bolted in place, giving the shoe a highly dominatrix feel. This also allows each top part of the shoe to be interchanged. Created in a range of colours and materials from soft ice-white suede, to metallic mirror silver leather, the shoes completed Lagerfeld’s ‘futuristic rock goddess’ collection perfectly, especially with Mondino’s classic shot of skinny Karl as guitar hero cleverly spray-stenciled on the front of the shoes. Please contact Alexandra Kotsias in the Rupert Sanderson press office for further information and samples. All made to order. www.rupertsanderson.co.uk/about/KarlLagerfeld.html

Fashion week is still rolling on and everyone is patiently waiting for the big Marc show tonight. While you wait, check out my reviews of these collections.
Victoria Beckham’s collection was a little bit of the same from last time with a few changes. I think she is becoming more confident with her collection and herself. For those of you who don’t know, the reason she doesn’t smile is because she is really shy and trying to avoid people. According to a few tweets, she actually came out and explained her collection to people, so I think that is a great move for her. You are going to see the same 50’s housewife, Dior’s New Look, sharp geometric shapes, but you are also going to see a pattern splashed in there and some lacey cut out mesh fabric. Do I think the last two elements should have been added to the collection…NO, but she was trying to break up her collection. I can see some potential in the future. Overall it was good and I can see people buying it.
Diane von Furstenburg’s collection was more summer oriented than spring, but I loved it. I thought it was awesome how she mixed neutrals with neon colors. the whole collection was very tropical. The prints and fabrics really made you feel like you were on the beach. The model’s wavy hair and bright makeup make me miss summer already. I also applaud DVF for being one of the few designers to use ethnic women in her show. As president of the CFDA, she has to take stands on what she believes in. Hopefully other designer will follow suit. I doubt it though.
Erin Fetherston gets a big round of applause from me. I usually like all of her collections because they are youthful and unique, but there is only so much of the Minnie Mouse and Alice in Wonderland look, that she presents year in and year out, one can take. Well I think Erin got the memo. Her collection, while maintaining its youthful charm, is very much grown up. There are no Lolita’s here. The collection was inspired by her childhood in Japan, and I can totally see that in the floral prints, cut of the garments, and flowing gowns. This collection was one of her best because she actually took the time to mature.

I know brogues have been in style for a few seasons now, but I am finally getting into the trend. I always thought they were cute, but probably wouldn’t look right on me. Here is a picture of Sienna Miller wearing the Rupert Sanderson “Joyce” brogues with jeans and a long cardi. The shoes cost £345.00 which is about $563.69. Photos from Rupert Sanderson
I saw these two dresses on the Urban Outfitters’ website, and thought they would be perfect for these shoes. Everybody wants to wear heels with dresses, which is ok, but I think you can slide in some flatwear every now and then. Photos from Urban Outfitters.
I hope you all like the changes. I am working hard the make my blog as aesthetically pleasing as possible, so expect more changes.
I mean they really are on point. Usually you see a celebrity in some kind of apparel or accessory and you have to try and figure out who or what they are wearing. Well… today I got an email from Rupert Sanderson’s pr team telling me that Cheryl Cole, who is famous in the UK, was wearing their shoes. It think they must have been reading my blog, or someone told them about my shoe obsession. Either way I have been wasting my morning perusing their website. Thanks.
I actually had no idea who Rupert Sanderson was, and what he was selling. I thought it was a spam email at first, but I like learning about different brands so I looked at the email and went on the website. I really like the shoes. They are so amazing. They are a little too expensive for my recessionista taste, but they are gorg. They also had some cute saddle oxfords too. My friends laugh at my saddle oxfords, but I have been wearing saddle oxfords since the 2nd grade. I don’t know why I can’t part with them. LOL! Photos from the Rupert Sanderson website.
So note to all PR teams that read my blog, send me more emails. I love learning about new and old brands that I may be unfamiliar with, and I might just rant or rave about them. Please remember that I like to keep it really real. I will talk about your product on my own. Don’t beg me to write a review, and DO NOT think that sending me an email requires me to talk about you. It doesn’t. Have a nice day!
