Nicholas Kirkwood at Harrods London, May 2018

To celebrate the launch of the autumn winter 2018 collection ‘Imperfect Tension’, a Nicholas Kirkwood pop-up will be taking residence in the Harrods Shoe Heaven for six weeks starting from 2nd May, the first installation of the season. The over-riding aesthetic of the collection and the inspiration behind the ephemeral installation, focus on creating an engaging tension between 90’s alternative rock styling and more natural materials and elements. 

The Kirkwood woman embodies a sharper and more glamorous version of her grunge heroine for this season with a distinct, unapologetic approach to her style. 

During the six week pop-up customers will be able to shop a kaleidoscope of colours and textures of the signature Beya loafers and Casati mules. 

New autumn winter 2018 silhouettes showcased include the Polly family, with its new bolt shaped gold metal heel which contrasts an industrial aesthetic with feminine uppers in plush fabrications. 

The new Suzi boot will also be available for customers to peruse which features hexagonal studs around the heels of the boot, adding metallic elements that offer an interesting tension and deliver just the right degree of polish.
