Nicholas Kirkwood has been synonymous with daring innovation since the founding of the Maison. Drawing inspiration from art, fashion and technology, the designer creates shoes that are objects of desire. For the Autumn Winter 2019 season the British designer has imagined a collection with retro accents inspired by Asian cinema. New shapes are joined by dazzling hues in updated designs, always showcasing the exquisite details that make Nicholas Kirkwood creations iconic.
Founded in 2005, Maison Nicholas Kirkwood joined the LVMH Group 2013. Nicholas Kirkwood’s architecturally inspired pieces combine high craft with cutting edge technology. For Autumn Winter 2019, the Nicholas Kirkwood woman pushes onwards through the dystopian world created in the campaign for the Spring Summer 2019 collection, constantly on the move, en route for the unknown.
For this season, the shoe designer found inspiration in Asian cinema, especially two films by director Wong Kar Wai, 2046 and Fallen Angels, which plunge viewers into the dark, wet ambiance of American motel rooms, illuminated by fluorescent neon lights.
Nicholas Kirkwood makes the room the leitmotiv of the Autumn Winter 2019 campaign. A place of calm from the noise of the outside world, a space where the Nicholas Kirkwood woman can pause to reflect before she continues on her mission.
The Autumn Winter 2019 collection is full of moody degradés in dawn and dusk hues. Dazzling sequins and liquid glitter leather reflect the changing states of the city. Bold leopard prints are inspired directly from a scene from the sci-fi film Liquid Sky by Slava Tsukerman shot in an 80’s New York club, joined by harmonious nude and noir tones.
The collection represents the multiple dimensions of the modern woman’s life. The many contrasting facets of her mood and personality empower her to seek her purpose while never compromising who she is or how she presents herself to the world.
