As much as I love weird shoes and crazy prints, I’ll never love anything as much as I love black. Even when I was a little kid, I asked my mom to get me the black Keds instead of the white ones everyone else in class had, and I’ve scarcely stopped buying black shoes since. Naturally, I was thrilled to see that Nicholas Kirkwood Fall 2013 contains plenty of dark-and-lovely options alongside the designer’s signature bright modernism.
The collection, which is available for pre-sale via Moda Operandi through February 27, contains plenty of shapes that will please longtime Kirkwood fans, but the best shoes are based on a wide, curved heel that’s new to the brand. Heel shapes have been moved in that direction lately, so it’s good to see Kirkwood respond with something that feels appropriate for his brand. (Plus, I love a curved heel. So sexy.) Check out our picks from the collection below or shop the full set via Moda Operandi.
