Nicholas Kirkwood's Dude Shoes Bring Razzle-Dazzle To The Men's Department

For the peacocking woman, Nicholas Kirkwood is basically the plumes of choice, creating beautifully designed, leg-flattering shapes in colors, patterns, detailing, and textures you were more likely to see in a bazaar than in a shoe department. Not one to leave our male counterparts empty-handed, Nicholas Kirkwood finally revealed his very first menswear collection in London today, and the shoes have no less of that razzle-dazzle.

The relatively simple shapes — oxfords, desert boots, smoking slippers, sporty lace-ups — are festooned with the same stripes, studs, and chevrons that have been hypnotizing women for years now. No official pics of the shoes are available yet, but we saw this amazing chevron gradient lace-up shoe from Frame Noir director Brian Phillips' Instagram (for pics of the studded lace-ups and loafers, check out this Instagram by @framenoir). The shoes will retail between $520 to $920 and will include six styles in multiple colorways. Guys — shop for them at Nicholas Kirwood boutiques in London and New York this July. Women — it's time for you to be jealous. (WWD)
