As every true fashion lover knows, an outfit is made or broken by the final touches – those little last add ons that complete a look, or in the case of Nicholas Kirkwood‘s impeccable spring shoe collection – elevate an entire ensemble to stunning new heights. Kirkwoods are the creme de la creme of the current luxury heel moment, eclipsing names like Manolo and Louboutin in terms of relevance and it-factor. On the runways for haute labels like Rodarte and Suno, Kirkwood provides the limited edition heels du jour that make editors go mad. For his own collection he went for the wow factor with a series of embellished stilettos and platforms that defy gravity and push boundaries. Take in the well-heeled fantasy of Kirkwood’s epically elegant vision for spring.
