Shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood has released a special, limited-edition collection inspired by his childhood of toys, TV and arcade games.
Kirkwood grew up in the ‘80s and translated memories of “Star Wars,” “Back to the Future” and Pac-Man into such fun, creative details as square crystals, laser-cut pajettes and glow-in-the-dark shoelaces to decorate the shoes that are based on his trademark styles from the past 10 years and feature his signature platform.
WWD notes that “Kirkwood and his Italian factories pushed the envelope by using micro-marquetry and fine embroidery techniques, cut a material traditionally used for Exit signs into glowing wave patterns, and crafted heels from Plexiglas and mirrors.”
Kirkwood has only made a limited number of shoes in the “10” collection that are priced between $2,700 and $6,900, and will be available for pre-order at the Kirkwood pop-up at Selfridges Saturday during London Fashion Week, then traveling to trunk shows around the world.
If the shoes are a bit out of your price range, Kirkwood will also have iPhone cases and totes as part of the collection.
