Nicholas Kirkwood unveiled his fall collection, Arcs of Orbit, at Level Shoe District last night. The Brit designer was on hand to introduce his largest pop-up atelier yet at the Dubai super-store.
Here, Kirkwood gives shoe advice, names his least favorite trend and picks the top shoe in his closet.
What is your favorite style from the spring ’15 collection?
NK: The 105-millimeter color Kaleidoscope style. It really sums up the essence of the collection with the use of the collaged Japanese poster motifs and bright colors.
Any shoe trends you wish would fade?
NK: Socks and pool sliders. They are an oxymoron.
What advice would you give to female shoppers?
NK: That a shoe that fits is always preferable. But if not, make sure that they at least look cool.
What is your favorite pair of shoes in your closet?
NK: My Nike Huarache high-tops. They make me think I can slam dunk.
