Take a big name of international pop art – an artist that has turned few, simple shapes into a success that is still big today – and a very creative designer specialized injewel-like shoewear.
The combination of such not too distantworlds resulted in a playful and refined collection in which the shoes, thanks to a cascade of Swarovski crystals and deep colors, become a work of art themselves.
This is the Keith Haring by Nicholas Kirkwood collection: the models, undoubtedlyfashionable, are the expression of Eighties'New York street culture and of Kirkwood’s passion for complex architectures.
The shoe models are evidently inspired by the US artist and writer: sculpture-like heels that embellish a pair of suede pumps; bows, straps, Plexiglas heels and, moreover,vibrant shades such as yellow, red and electric blue.
Born in Germany in 1980, Kirkwood has worked with John Rocha, Erdem, Rodarte, Pollini and has been a finalist of the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund Award 2010.
