Ashley Tyson for Nicholas Kirkwood

Florals for spring?

In a ‘ground breaking’ move Nicholas Kirkwood is celebrating the arrival of spring by collaborating with Ashley Tyson, a burgeoning London based illustrator and tattoo artist who has created a series of exclusive floral motifs she painted on to Beya loafers and Pearlogy sneakers from the spring summer 2018 collection.

Ashley Tyson’s work uses a series of tiny dots to create larger images, referencing the pointillist style of painting. Her irreverently feminine and stand-out designs have earned her a devout following, this complementary artistic aesthetic putting her on the radar of Nicholas Kirkwood.  Tyson created a series of monochrome, intricate floral designs exclusively for Nicholas Kirkwood that are all bespoke, painted by hand in the distinct Pointillist dot style so each pair is completely unique.
