Nicholas Kirkwood studied at Central Saint Martins and Cordwainers in England, his eponymous collection launched in spring 2005. This collection was comprised of architecturally inspired pieces with a blend of genres subverting the relationship between femininity and modernity. Craftsmanship plays an integral role in every collection. It is this perfection of craftsmanship itself that has a stylistic value highlighted by the use of geometric forms and strong clean lines, all inspired by structural shapes. The shoes are free of excessive decorative elements, the focus always being on innovation of form.
