Sophia Webster can always be relied upon to transform a space into something otherworldly. Taking us far away from last season's giant snow globes and frosty ice queens, Spring/Summer 2018 saw her transform Somerset House’s Portico Rooms into a botanical haven for her 'Away With The Fairies' collection. Inspired by the story of the Cottingley fairies and Cicely Mary Barker's The Flower Fairies, her designs were showcased in Renaissance painting-like structures complete with giant dandelions, white hyacinths and purple pansies.
The collection itself featured many a tongue-in-cheek slogan – a signature for the brand – with the likes of 'I'll Bring You Flowers' and 'Roses Are Red' appearing on a selection of clutch bags and top-handle bags. Shoes were eye-catching as ever – dazzling bejewelled details, pompoms, bright colours and metallic details were adorned on mules and towering stilettos, while floating rose petals and golden fairies were cleverly encased in clear Perspex elements of clogs and seventies-style platforms. You can always count on Webster to put the fun into footwear.
