Nicholas Kirkwood

 

Nicholas Kirkwood is touted as the next Christian Louboutin in the shoe game. I think his designs are a little radical for your basic-pump-and-peep-toe crowd, but the excess is so satisfying.

 

His designs invoke thoughts of sculpture, Cubism, and flying insects. I’m in love with the signature chipped-block platform. Joining the adoring chorus, I love Kirkwood shoes.

Nod to Ms. Miller’s article :)

It takes brains, a sense of humor and a lot of guts to wear Kirkwoods. J’adore.

Western metal buckles, S&M (bless this trend),straps to heaven n’ pleasure, beautiful linear design,and color as black as my soul. 

These are the one-ups from the Givenchy basketweave wedges that everyone loves:

I love where shoe design is going…hopefully higher and stranger. Give me more lattice!
