Once upon a time I had a lovely little friend called Imogen, who as the London born product of an Australian father and British mum eventually left school for far sunnier climes and a new life in Sydney. Her parents had their own shoe company: Senso, at the time based in London but since then making waves Down Under and now in the States too. Now that school and University are behind us, she and her too gorgeous sisters Alicia and Skye have joined forces with the family business. Though Imi is and will always be my friend, I would not be blogging this if their shoes weren't triple awesome. Please see below some teasers to get your tootsies lusting for a new home.
Their sassy shoes always pack a punch and are not designed for the shy and retiring wallflower but rather will liven up any outfit. Senso shoes are available on American shoe website Solestruck and the perennially cool Ozzie site Nasty Gal. The really good news for us Brits is, that if like me you have a phobia of trans-global shoe purchases and not being able to try on for size and fit. Senso is coming to town in the form of Willa Keswick's new Westbourne Grove boutique. The Ledbury Road store is called The Village Bicycle and opens next month. It will sit pretty amongst its largely French neighbours Sandro, Zadig and Voltaire and Joseph. In addition to Senso it will stock vintage gems, Mark Fast and Bodyamr. Could I be more excited?
