For someone with a shoe addiction the amount of fantastic shoe designers is pleasing me. Aside from the obvious Manolo, Choo and Louboutin obsession, I have been following designer Nicholas Kirkwood since he launched in 2005. Kirkwood is another Central St Martin alumnus, aka the future of fashion. His acclaimed collections consistently push boundaries of style. The 2010 A/W collection places emphasis on his signature curvilinear forms, however the shoe collection sparkles with unusual skins and techniques such as hand prinked lace suede, wax dripped suede, shimmery metallic suedes and degrade python. Beautiful. I stand excited for the highly anticipated shoe collection collaboration with Rodarte. Bright coloured lace-up shoe boots with twisted swaths of leather around the ankle. Yes please.
