Founded in London in 2001, Rupert Sanderson’s design philosophy is simply 'less is more'. Avoiding augmentation and over dressing the foot, emphasis is on perfecting the line, volume and material to flatter and lengthen the leg. The designs focus on the use of materials; the sensual curve and silhouettes of the lasts and heels, as well as the quality and finish of the best materials.
Every pair of Rupert Sanderson shoes is meticulously crafted by hand in Bologna, Italy, embodying traditional Italian craftsmanship with a distinctive avant-garde design. There are over 120 individual processes involved in designing and making a shoe, every step requires an intricate understanding and appreciation in order to bring to life the often highly conceptual designs.
In June 2012, Bertrand Mak, the brand’s partner in Asia, created an exclusive collection known as Rupert Sanderson “GOLD”. This exquisite collection comprises a wide array of designs cherry-picked from the repertoire of coveted signatures of the brand, all made with tailored Asian lasts for added comfort and united with a common trademark – 24K gold leaf heels and pebble buckles.
Rupert Sanderson shoes have graced the feet of Hollywood A-listers as well as royalties including The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and The Crown Princess of Denmark, Mary Elizabeth Donaldson.
