Shoe Lust: Nicholas Kirkwood Pre-Spring 2013

What better way to start your week than with some shoes to drool over? Nicholas Kirkwood has just made his Pre-Spring 2013 collection available for pre-order and it is chock full of statement-making footwear. From mirror leather loafers to swirl-detailed colorblock pumps, there is something for everyone.

The swirl is a big focus in the collection, showing up everywhere on suede platform pumps in the classic color palette of black and white, sky-high slingback sandals boasting Kirkwood’s signature cone heels, flat lace-up sandals, and those aforementioned platform pumps in aqua, black, and lavender for a clever study in colorblocking. The detail lends both an old-world and whimsical feel to the offering.

Ankle-strap sandals are still going strong for next year and Kirkwood shows a few options continuing trends that are popular right now from bold prints to colorblocking.

A fun spin on animal print is shown in the form of eye-catching white and turquoise elaphe snake, giving the collection an ample dose of the exotic.

Need a shoe pick-me-up that’s office appropriate? Look no further than the Block Heel Pumps, boasting 4″ heels and a pointed toe silhouette.

Last, but not least are the shoes which will definitely be seen on the red carpet on Kirkwood’s fans including Jada Pinkett Smith, Kerry Washington, Zoe Saldana and more. What woman can resist a bow or crystal ball-embellished platform?

We all know that a pair of Kirkwoods cost a pretty penny, thus the collection retails for $710 – $1,995. Start saving those coins ladies! Pre-order the collection now at
