Nicholas Kirkwood - our obsession continues

default

Check this out for a résumé...you create shoes that every fashionista would die for, your designs fly off the shelves faster than you can say ‘pass me a size 37', you've been awarded Emerging Accessories Designer of the year at the British Fashion Awards and now you're accessories designer for old-brand-turned-good Pollini. You are Nicholas Kirkwood and you are our Friday obsession du jour!  But to be more specific, as much as we adore the man himself, today our love extends to a particular mini trend within his first and very ladylike collection for Pollini SS09 - the navy, black and white polka dots. You'd have thought we were polka-dotted out after the Comme des Garcons/H&M collaboration, but no, these futuristic court shoes with architectural heels, tasselled pom pom front and go faster stripes have made us go all dotty again! Choosing between the peeptoe shoots or boyish brogues is tough, but we could always console ourselves with a matchy matchy handbag too...
