Nicholas Kirkwood celebrates the brand’s ten year anniversary for 2015. The designer is part of the video game age and it is with this playful approach to ‘heritage’ that the Nicholas Kirkwood numbered edition, made-to-order collection of ten styles is launched.
Challenging traditional notions of luxury footwear and subverting the concept of couture, the ‘10’ collection looks to the child-like excitement surrounding games, toys and films of the 1980s – a defining moment in pop culture for Kirkwood and an essential part of his bold, signature graphic language.
The collection revisits Kirkwood’s most iconic designs from the past ten years. In his characteristic style, high traditional craftsmanship mixes with contemporary technical innovations: natural and luxurious fabrications are found alongside new, experimental materials and a familiar, feminine architecture is contrasted with the designer’s technically audacious expression of form. ‘10’ results in a collection that is striking, daring, desirable, and truly collectible.
The ‘10’ collection is available to order for a limited time until December 1, 2015. For orders and enquiries please contact the Nicholas Kirkwood stores in London, Paris, New York, Las Vegas and Beijing. The anniversary collection is also available to order through selected department and specialty store partners including Selfridges, Bergdorf Goodman, Le Bon Marche, On Pedder, Lane Crawford, and Level Shoe District.
