Repost: Rupert Sanderson's Sandals, Slaves in the Details

Repost from Operachic... this was too good...

London-based shoe designer Rupert Sanderson had apprenticeships in Bologna before starting his own private label, first working with Italian greats like Sergio Rossi and Bruno Magli. And maybe it was in Italy where he had inspiration for theatrics, something like what we witnessed in the gold wedge sandals designed for David McVicar's Verdi Aida, now going onto its last performance at London's Royal Opera House.

Worn by Marianne Cornetti's Amneris, we've been told that the sandals (for whatever reason) were shelved after the first performance and have been replaced by normal footwear.

The sandals shared the spotlight with Micaela Carosi's Aida, Marcelo Alvarez's Radames, and Nicola Luisotti on the podium.

the design was very artistic and the details was amazing...
