River Island are always pushing the boundaries of high street fashion. With their ongoing young designer collaborations and the mega-hyped Rihanna collections, it comes as no surprise that their next big collab is with hugely popular style blogger Sandra Hagelstam from 5 Inch and Up.
Inspired by her love of high heels, the Finnish fashionista started her blog back in 2010, quickly making her mark in the blogging world, being named as one to watch just a year later. Fast forward a few years and now the stiletto-loving stylista has landed herself a collection with high street giant River Island!
Having studied Design at London College of Fashion, this project is right up her street! The range is true to her signature style, with clean lines, a muted colour palette and the finest of detailing.
River Island’s capsule footwear collaboration for AW14 features six unique styles of shoe, from fetish to feminine, to suit all types of shoe lovers. We’re looking forward to the slick black ponyskin mules, snake and croc ankle boots and suede over the knee boots. How are we going to choose?!
Sandra said: “I am so excited and honored to be working with River Island on this fantastic collaboration. I’ve aimed to design a powerful and seductive collection for strong women who understand the importance of a simplified statement shoe and I’m eager to see how women will be styling the range.”
Can’t wait to see 5inchandup x River Island collection? Well it’s available to shop right now! Sandra invites you to join her at River Island Park House, Oxford Street from 7 – 9.30pm for a night filled with Q&A’s, styling tips and the chance to win a pair of shoes from the collection, yippee!
