Spring Summer 2019 See Now, Buy Now Capsule Collection
September 2018 sees Nicholas Kirkwood presenting his spring summer 2019 collection in London – in an on-schedule fashion show slot for the first time – creating an immersive experience combining experiential fashion, high art and digital media. The Spring Summer 2019 See Now Buy Now capsule collection, available straight off the runway features three signature styles – the Casati pearl combat boot, Mira pearl pump and Beya loafer. Each silhouette features the new seasonal print – perfection. Perfection was inspired by the visual mania of TV screen digital interference.
The show concept is based around a tribe of activists protesting against a Tyrannical government who are cracking down on individuality and pushing a regime of fashion banality. For Kirkwood the aesthetics of all the technical hardware and the way the activists dress is an interesting world, one fashion hasn’t looked at yet. The feminine, stand-out, sculptural, artistic shoes that Nicholas Kirkwood is renowned for couldn’t be further from the world of hacking in principle. Engaging in this tension and creating a new dialogue and interpretation on this concept is an exciting challenge for Kirkwood.
As with all Kirkwood’s work the spring summer 2019 collection focuses on the harmony and disharmony of materials. A digital overlay was introduced and applied to Kirkwood’s ubiquitous design techniques and visual signatures.
