Since the announcement that River Island was teaming up with super blogger Sandra Hagelstam of 5 Inch and Up, we’ve been eagerly awaiting the launch of the collaboration. She’s got a great sense of style, so we knew that we’d be in for a treat with her own designs. We loved the sneak peek sketches they teased on social media, but nothing beats that first look at the real thing.
The six-piece capsule collection features ankle boots, mules, court shoes and a stunning pair of thigh high boots. Most pieces range from £80 to £120, but the boots will set you back a hefty £185.
It’s finally here! We’ve joined forces with blogger @5inchandup for an exclusive limited edition footwear collection, available in selected stores & online NOW! In London tonight? Come party with us & Sandra herself to celebrate the launch at our Park House store from 7pm! #5inchandpxRI #riverisland
If you need any inspiration on how to incorporate the shoes into your new winter wardrobe, rest assured that Sandra will be styling them up on her own blog. River Island is marketing the lovely court shoe as Sandra’s favourite, and we’ve already been treated to a whimsical winter image of the blogger wearing the nude version with a pastel pink coat.
To celebrate the launch, fans were invited to view the collection with the blogger herself at River Island’s Oxford Street store as they sipped complimentary bubbles and enjoyed a live DJ set. The collection is available to buy at selected stores and online now.
