Nicholas Kirkwood's New Shoes Are Every Mod Girl's Dream

Nicholas Kirkwood has built his reputation on statement-making shoes. In the past, his arsenal of attention-getting details have included (but have by no means been limited to) pearls, chevron cutouts, and monster platforms. This time around, the British designer sets his gaze squarely on the past for inspiration. Or, more like a vision of the future, as imagined in the past.

The fall '15 collection explores a so-called "'60s futurism" via chunky heels, retro silhouettes, and playful petal details that appear everywhere from ankle straps to heels. It's a very grown-up youthquake look — Twiggy tested, 2010s approved. Click ahead to see our faves.
