Nicholas Kirkwood creates sophisticated and modern women footwear with futuristic details.
The brand offers true artworks which seem carved rather than made of leather uppers, laces and heels.
The shoe designer turns against the classical proposals, as the traditional and overexposed spool heel sabot created by several designers; after his work at Philip Treacy, he attends the Design School at Cordwainers College.
In 2005 he launched his own collection arousing celebrities curiosity and four years later he reaches a great success designing the Rodarte footwear collections.
Designs are characterized by geometric shapes, details, patchworks, multi-level wedges and thin stilettos, brass bolts or wax flows.
Over the knee bondage boots sensually wrap the thigh, leather suede or python sandals lean on high heels with the carved upper as a spider web.
Brand also proposes loafers, open toe and latex masterpieces; stilettos in printed silk or metallic leather are studded with Swarovski and embellished by geometries, buckles, straps, zippers and unusual plateau.
