Nicholas Kirkwood Teams Up With Disney To Design 'Oz The Great and Powerful' Shoes: EXCLUSIVE SKETCHES

Back in London Fashion Week before a busy day of Topshop Unique and Viv Westwood, Grazia Daily had breakfast with Disney at Somerset House. But this wasn't a Disneyland stylee character breaky with Goofy and pals - this was strictly about fashion.

As we ate iced green cupcakes and sipped on emerald cocktails to see shoe wizard Nicholas Kirkwood's Oz inspired designs, and now we can exclusively share with you his sketches. This marks Kirkwood's first move into the world of film, as each design was inspired directly from Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz' characters in Oz The Great and Powerful. As you would expect from a Disney inspired shoe they are all magical - from an elaborate, witchy stiletto to a pink princess slipper.

You may remember that Mr Kirkwood launched his first men's collection back in January at London's Men's Collections with six designs, and so he also designed a zigzag brogue for James Franco's character Oz. He said of the design: 'The materials are inspired by the character as they are for all of them. It is embroidered silver on top of a suede mixed with alligator - Oz being great and powerful and alligator being the greatest and most powerful I thought it was a nice combination.'

Nicholas Kirkwood's four-piece collection will be available to buy in early March alongside the release of the film on March 8 from Selfridges. The department store is set to go Oz crazy as you will be able to follow ACTUAL yellow bricks from the film set around the store, which will lead you to original costumes and props and then of course to Nicholas's limited edition collection.
