Following a career in advertising, Rupert Sanderson decided to pursue his passion in shoemaking. After studying at the acclaimed Cordwainers College in London, he completed a training stint in Italy under the guidance of Sergio Rossi. In 2001, he then launched his eponymous, London based label. Sanderson’s design philosophy centers around the idea of ‘less is more’. His sought-after pieces are a masterclass in understated elegance and high comfort.
