Nicholas Kirkwood

Nicholas Kirkwood who recently was -next to his own amazing collection- also responsible for the shoes of Belstaff and Jean Pierre Braganza... describes his aesthetic for V-Magazine,
I think some of it is taken from architecture in a way that is not decorative in the classic sense, but lots of the shapes I've developed are based on how the shoe looks as a silhouette. Different layers within a shoe. Like one shoe clamped over the top of another one. Repeating a pattern like something slipped out.
