About Rupert Sanderson:
Rupert Sanderson is a shoe designer. He was born in 1966 in Penang, Malaysia (coincidentally the same Malaysian island Jimmy Choo is from). The son of a British Army officer, Rupert Sanderson lived the typically peripatetic life of an army child. After graduating from Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, London University, he worked in advertising in London before enrolling on the shoe making course at the world-recognized Cordwainers College in East London, joining a long lineage of stellar shoemakers such as Jimmy Choo. During the summer holiday of the two-year course, he rode a motorbike to Italy to visit shoe factories, tanneries and last makers, meeting artisans and learning as much as possible about the trade.
Rupert Sanderson’s design ethos is simply ‘less is more’, focusing on perfecting the line, balance and symmetry of the shoe to flatter and lengthen the leg; rather than adding more and over-embellish, Sanderson likes to pair down the design and concentrates on the fit, length and shape of the last, and reportedly rendering even his five-inch heels relatively comfortable to wear.
