• Happy Birthday To Me!


    I celebrated 10 years of life in shoes last week firstly with a window on Oxford Street, generously given to us by Selfridges. We filmed the making of the window which you can see here.


    Following a late night installation it was on to lunch at Bellamy's, thrown for 25 of my closest friends and supporters.  Lily Allen and Daisy Lowe duked it out with Olivia Williams and Astrid Berges-Frisbey over the Dover Sole. It was great to say thank you to the people who have given encouragement and helped spread the good word over the last decade. 10 years!! Only feels like yesterday...














  • Please Welcome


    I'm pleased to introduce our new guest editor Virginia Damtsa, shoe fan and more importantly, joint owner of the remarkable Riflemaker gallery on Beak Street. It opened in 2004 in an old Soho rifle makers workshop, dating back to 1712 - making it the oldest public building in the west end. One of their most memorable shows was Alice Anderson's Rapunzel featuring huge tresses of red hair flowing out of the upper floor window down to street level - remember it? Well, the gallery's ambition knows no bounds and I urge you to hotfoot it down there to catch a candle lit one night only performance of The Tempest on December 5. In the meantime, check out Virginia's piece on our site here.




    In other news, we had our press days this week. Might have stumbled on the confluence of two perfect things - cake AND shoes. Cupcakes courtesy of new Primrose Hill bakery, Sweet Things, www.sweetthings.biz.



  • Smile


    Pleased to get the re-issue (final?) of the Beach Boys legendary Smile Sessions this week. A Bible of tosh has been written about it over the past 40 years. Just marvel at the acapella and dark strangeness of it.


    By the way, we are looking to hire a top flight Production Manager to help run the show. Get in touch - alex@rupertsanderson.com.
