Nicholas Kirkwood's New Shoes Pay Homage to Zaha Hadid
For Resort 2017, Nicholas Kirkwood sought inspiration from a source very close to his heart: the pioneering architect Zaha Hadid, who passed away in March. “I designed the collection before she died,” Kirkwood told Observer. “She’s been a huge inspiration to me and she was such a strong woman with such a bold vision. I felt like I had to honour her.”
Much like Hadid's designs, the newest Nicholas Kirkwood shoes are futuristic and innovative, utilising a range of materials, including cork, pearls, perspex, and metallic leather. Mark your calendars: the shoes will be available in October.
