R · SANDERSON is a maker of precious, one-of-a-kind women shoes and objects of art. Its creations are synonymous with exceptional artistry and contemporary elegance, distinguished by the hand-gilded 24-carat gold leaf heels and gems that are instantly recognisable by their artistic expressiveness.
Bertrand Mak founded R. Sanderson in 2016 shortly after creating the first 24-carat gold leaf heel with specialist gilding know-how and reimagined lacquering techniques, challenging conventions. Invented and performed in-house, exclusively for R. Sanderson, Crystalline™ blends age-old craftsmanship and technology to achieve extraordinary finishes that continually astonish and captivate, laying the bedrock for growth.
Under the vision and creative direction of Bertrand Mak, in collaboration with British designer Rupert Joseph Sanderson and unsung artisans from all over the world, R. Sanderson creations are infused with emotions and passionately crafted by hand in Italy, Great Britain, France, Germany and Japan. Combining precious media with expertise handed down from generations, every piece is unique and a testament to superlative quality.
The spirit of audacious ingenuity is deeply embedded in the DNA of the brand, exemplified not only in the breakthrough of each collection but the relentless endeavours to nurture and inspire creativity and excellence. R. Sanderson creations are available only in directly operated boutiques to assure their rarity and prestige. With an ongoing expansion strategy, R. Sanderson continues to amplify its expressions and reach to bring forward objects of art that will become legends of tomorrow.
