Nicholas Kirkwood is already occupying much of my Fall wish list (thanks to this shoe and that shoe), and now he’s already begun his assault on my Spring accessories budget too. This vibrant printed pump from the London-based footwear designer’s Spring 2012 collection has stolen my heart. Inspired by his recent Bali vacation, the shoe features a stunning tropical flora print in a joyful colour palette of orange, lime green and sky blue.
“Bali was my first holiday since starting the business seven years ago,” Kirkwood said. “And I came back wanting to do something more colorful and a little softer than before.” If all he needs is a bit of downtime in order to design such stunning shoes, then I’m happy to contribute to his vacation fund with a purchase here or there. Me, a shoe addict? Oh no, I’m just doing my part to keep the creative juices flowing in the industry. Yup.
