River Island gets exciting new collaboration


Share This Article:

After successful collaborations with big names such as Rihanna, River Island now has partnered up with the super stylish Sandra Hagelstam, from the blog 5 Inch and up, who is heading up an exclusive footwear collaboration for AW14.

Finnish-born Sandra launched her blog 5 Inch and Up in 2010 whilst studying at the London College of Fashion. Inspired by her love of shoes (the higher the better, of course), her blog showcases her style and has generated thousands of fans all around the world. 

Sandra’s six-piece capsule collection draws inspiration from fetish and feminine Victoriana. The range features over-the-knee boots, ankle boots, court shoes with mock lacing and suede, black ponyskin mules and snake and mock croc ankle books.

Sandra says: "I am so excited and honoured to be working with River Island on this fantastic collaboration, I can’t wait to see it launch in store and online.

"I've aimed to design a powerful and seductive collection for strong women who understand the importance of a simplified statement shoe and I’m eager to see how women will be styling the range.

"It's been a fantastic experience working with the great team of buyers and designers at River Island in creating this collection and I hope it will be as fun to wear as it has been to design the shoes."

From just looking at the initial sketches its clear that this collection is going to be a hit. We’ll see you in the queue!

The 5 Inch and Up collection will be available in select River Island stores and online at, with prices ranging from £85 - £185.
