For Sophia’s 2016 Resort collection I see two dominant themes for the collection. The first is the tropics which you can obviously see on the final two heels on this article. Both styles have palm trees, mixture of bright colors and uses warm-weather friendly espadrille and slide silhouettes.
The second dominant theme is the 80s due to the metallic gold heel used for the black suede sandal and the pop-graphic art on the sneaker-inspired slide. Each style harkens back to that glamorous and adventurous time period. It is with styles like these from her 2016 Resort collection and others is the reason why she received a B.F.A nomination for Accessory Designer of the year.
