Every season there is a shoe designer who tops all the rest. This season, it’s Mr. Nicolas Kirkwood. His creations for Peter Pilotto (in particular) are perfection; most definitely the shoe of the summer by a country mile. I would even put them in the same league the Balenciaga beauties that appeared last season, just far more practical.
Besides the shoes he designed for Erdem, he has kept it feminine and flattering, avoiding the ‘chunky monkey’ trend that is currently everywhere. Check out his own collection and his work for Erdem, Peter Pilotto and Rodarte at his website.
