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.
