Nicholas Kirkwood shoes
These are not for the faint of fashion. Kirkwood is genius.
An alumnus of prestigious design schools Central Saint Martin’s and Cordwainers, 27-year-old British designer Nicholas Kirkwood launched his eponymous collection in Spring 2005. The collection of architecturally inspired pieces with a blend of genres subverting the relationship between tradition and modernity instantly won the attention of Grace Jones, Daphne Guinness, the late Isabella Blow and Cecilia Dean of Visionaire as well as rave reviews from industry insiders…Kirkwood’s shoe making talent has meant he is much sought after by the design community. Recently French fashion house ChloÃ© employed him to consult on their AW 07 collection. Kirkwood has collaborated with an array of established and emerging designers including Gareth Pugh, Zac Posen, Phillip Lim, Doo Ri, Boudicca, Belstaff, Basso & Brooke and Louise Goldin.(source)
