Nicholas Kirkwood's eponymous brand has just turned 10 and to celebrate the designer has launched his latest collection exclusively in the Middle East at Level Shoe District. "I wanted to celebrate 10 years of the brand with a collection that sums up many things for me and what I stand for," confirmed Kirkwood.
"To go back to the essence of why I started designing shoes; to challenge convention and subvert people's ideas of what footwear should look like and in this case, for '10', I wanted to experiment with graphicism in a, quite literally, playful way. '10' explores the concept of being ten-years-old again and the excitement of discovering something for the first time."
The 10-strong collection of heels is a nod to pac-man, punk and pop culture. "Many big defining moments in pop culture have a strong influence on me, but growing up in the 80s, the culture of arcades, toys and films was the first I actively participated in, and it's this energy I wanted to recreate!"
