Rupert Sanderson trained at Cordwainers College. During his studies a motorbike
tour to Italy confirmed his ambitions- to design and make beautiful women’s
shoes. Much of the time he was meant to be spending at school, he was actually
in Italy designing for Sergio Rossi who subsequently offered him a permanent
design position. Flattered, he chose another offer from venerable Bolognese
shoe company, Bruno Magli. Rupert Sanderson formed his own company in August
2001. His passion for the craft rather than solely the fashion of shoes
means a continuous search for new leathers, treatments, techniques and material.
This combined with a love of form and line ensures a surfeit of ideas and
surprises every season.
