Last month, Nicholas Kirkwood revealed a whopping 101 pairs of shoes for his pre-spring '13 collection. And, just when we thought, "how in the world do you top that?" the designer has wowed us once more with his spring '13 line. Seriously, does this dude ever kick back?
This latest collection, inspired by Miami's South Beach, according to WWD, features all the usual suspects: wave patterns, saturated hues, and Art Deco influences. And, in true Kirkwood form, it's all about the details — cap-toe flats get a kick in the pants with graphic updates, and strappy sandals are chock-full of fancy textures. Most exciting is Kirkwood's ability to take the mid-heel and make it less "mumsy" (his words, not ours!). The shoemaker's solution to the style conundrum? Just add a block heel and many neon shades. Seriously, calling the man a genius doesn't do him justice!
As expected, we're already filling our virtual shopping carts on Moda Operandi with the quirky creations. We suggest you swing by the site before September 17th, or your chance to pre-order these bad boys will be gone for good. We're thinking those scalloped and sculpted heels are going to be our LBD's new BFF come spring.
