Nicholas-Kirkwood-Logo-2016Known for shoes with sculptural forms and Italian sensibility, Nicholas Kirkwood launches an even more spectacular Spring/Summer collection this year. Aside from being equal parts practical and adventurous, the collection celebrates the 10th anniversary of the cult designer’s eponymous brand. More reason to snag a new pair of shoes, right?

Nicholas Kirkwood expertly pushes the boundaries of shoe design with its artistic craftsmanship along with its no holds barred approach to experimenting with cuts, silhouettes, colors and prints. No matter how edgy Nicholas-Kirkwood-Spring-2016-shoesand whimsical, there is that inherent elegance and sophistication that continue to mature with every collection. This season we see more revamped signature styles that play with unique lines, forms and contours, as well as more refined shapes from narrowed block heels to a dipped heel that give the shoes a voluptuous finish, reminiscent of the curvy pumps in the 50’s.

Although there are a lot of blacks and other neutrals, the collection features a kaleidoscope of super fun colors that will surely brighten up your ensembles. An energetic palette of cobalt blue, orange, fuchsia and turquoise decorate the collection, while suede, patent leather, python, mesh and laser cut details add contrast and texture to the fancy footwear.

Nicholas-Kirkwood-colorblock-suede-pearl-sandalFor color, comfort and an extra lift, the Maya pearl platform sandal fits the bill. The catchy color contrast along with the wedge heel and concealed pearl create a fun and fabulous shoe design you can wear from day to night.

Another one of our favorites is the wave Ava sandal which emphasizes Kirkwood’s use of negative space, with a silhouette that highlights both the visible and the invisible. The graphic form of the shoe, plus its sneaker lace up detail, make it perfect for any woman who knows how to have fun with fashion.

Shop the collection at: Net-A-Porter, Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys, and Nicholas Kirkwood.

She thinks her 5’4″ height and her love for long walks make her deserving of all the stilettos, pumps, sandals and ballet flats in the world. If only the cupcakes she expertly bakes can be traded in for a new pair (or two, or hopefully, more).
