~ Kirkwood makes a point ~

7 Oct

The different looks in Nicholas Kirkwood’s Spring collection had light-years in between them, or at least the length of a showroom. At one end were the madcap, slightly infantile flat-forms he made for Meadham Kirchhoff’s show with pompoms, beading, and metallic frills. On the other: a super-sleek pair of pointy black suede ankle-strap pumps, the kind of thing Carrie Bradshaw would have waxed poetic about in 1998.
Kirkwood’s next project is his New York store at 807 Washington Street, right across from the Whitney’s new building. Its opening has been delayed to March, but it will be a stiletto’s throw from Christian Louboutin’s Horatio Street boutique. Can we expect a Meatpacking District shoe-down?
