“I probably watched ‘Frozen’ way too many times because of my little girl,” designer Sophia Webster said with a laugh about the inspiration behind the ice queen-inspired collection she showed Monday at London Fashion Week.
Highlights were sandals with jagged crystal shards for ankle straps, princess-y velvet numbers with built-in tiaras and thigh-high, crystal festooned gladiator boots with Perspex heels.
“I’m known for color,” observed Webster of the opalescent palette, “but this time, I wanted to really strip it back into something that felt a bit cleaner.”
A Sophia Webster presentation is, however, often as much about the staging as it is the shoes, and the designer transformed a subterranean space behind a record store into a prismatic ice village.
Piece de resistance? A giant snow globe in which models cavorted wearing lace-up platform snowboots complete with shearling linings and maribou trims.
