Spring Preview: Nicholas Kirkwood

Nicholas Kirkwood’s spring ’13 lineup spotlights graphic footwear shapes in candy-colored pastels, acid brights and bold monochromes. The designer drew inspiration from Miami’s South Beach and wave motifs, which appear in Art Deco-style wedge heels that are shaped like waves and swirling designs on blue suede, high-heeled pumps. Kirkwood also has experimented with a broader range of heel heights for spring. “I’ve been trying to find a mid-height [heel] that doesn’t necessarily look ‘mumsy,’” said Kirkwood. He solved that dilemma by crafting a triangular-shaped, mid-height block heel, which he’s worked onto sleek patent pumps. The glam collection also comprises mid-height and high stiletto heels, flats and towering wedges. Nicholas Kirkwood is sold in such top-tier department stores as Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman, as well as on Net-a-porter.com.
