    Nicholas Kirkwood has made his mark on the fashion world with heels that are not just statement-making but downright heart-stopping. And while we can't say this is the first time we've constructed an entire outfit around a single pair of shoes, the newest range of designs for the pre-fall collection may just be worth revamping our entire closets.

    The 56 designs for the Nicholas Kirkwood collection start at chunky flatform sandals and flat booties, building to single-soled, super-spikey, lace-lined heels and climaxing with the label's famously sky-high platforms (perhaps some of the only pairs we would willingly teeter-totter in). Plus, in addition to the new styles, Kirkwood has also teamed with the London-based master of feminine florals, Erdem Moralioğlu, for an unexpected use of delicate prints on powerful, hefty heels.

    Don't worry, we're sure you can find an outfit that does justice to these statement-making steppers. But closet space to store them all? Well, now that's a different story.
