Nicholas Kirkwood launches an exclusive Capsule Collection for Chinese New Year

To celebrate the Lunar New Year, Nicholas Kirkwood has launched an exclusive capsule collection, which re-imagines some of his most iconic styles: The Casati pearl loafer, Casati pearl ankle boot and Mira pearl pump.

According to traditional Chinese culture, red is the auspicious colour for Chinese New Year, a symbol of luck and prosperity.

As with all Kirkwood’s collections, he likes to manipulate traditions and add his own contemporary twist. The capsule collection features a deep burgundy colourway as an alternative to the conventional red, and the signature white pearl has been updated with a black pearl. The insole features a contrasting pink lining; an unexpected use of an irreverently feminine colour.

The Chinese New Year capsule collection launches on and exclusively with Lane Crawford in January 2019.
