Darling, These Are Ruperts
While we love our Manolos, Choos, and Loubs, there is something nice about having a pair of shoes that isn’t frequently sported on the red carpet by questionable celebrities.
Rupert Sanderson is one of those footwear brands you’ve probably heard of, but you can’t put a shoe to the name. Think classic and interesting, modern yet elegant, unique but not loud. And they are quite exclusive, which is great, but not much so that we can’t get our hands on them; Libertine on South Granville is exclusively stocking some of his key shapes for fall.
So when someone compliments you on your shoes, tell them they are Ruperts, and enjoy their slightly confused, envious expressions. —Alexandra Suhner Isenberg
