Luxury shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood is joining his flagship women’s store with a three-month stint on Mayfair’s Mount Street. The pop-up space, intended to run until mid-January, will be the first store to house the designer’s debut men’s collection in its entirety.
Kirkwood, who unveiled the line in January as part of London Collections: MEN, has enlisted architectural designer Mehrnoosh Khadivi to design the shop’s interior. Evolving from an installation used to launch the collection, the approach is aimed to contrast with the women’s all-white gallery look further down the retail estate.
The shoes are 100 per cent hand-crafted in Italy, using innovative techniques to develop custom-made leathers and fabrics. Each style displays carefully considered attention to line, proportion and intricate detailing.
As well as being available in store, the brand has also delivered on plans to launch an e-commerce site. The full range, which starts at £456, is available online at NicholasKirkwood.com or 109 Mount Street, London.
