here is a little excerpt from thenewyorktimes.com
http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/200...6-pulse_6.html

he honestly is my new shoe hero!
THE British cobbler Nicholas Kirkwood admits that he could just as easily have gone into car design. Or furniture. It was while working for the milliner Philip Treacy that he decided on footwear. “He had all these ladies coming in with their girly kitten heels, and I saw the opportunity to do something different — something more aggressive,” Mr. Kirkwood said.
Good decision. In the three years since he started his line of amped-up, architectural, sky-high shoes, Mr. Kirkwood has collaborated with Chloé, Phillip Lim, Gareth Pugh and Rodarte; landed a job designing footwear for the newly revived Italian label Pollini; and garnered the adoration of influential fashion players like Anna Dello Russo of Japanese Vogue, Cecilia Dean of Visionaire, and Sarah
Rutson, the fashion director of Lane Crawford. At this fall’s Paris Fashion Week, his cantilevered platforms were so prevalent, the blogworld promptly anointed him the new Christian Louboutin.
“That’s very flattering,” he said. “But I’d rather be the first Nicholas Kirkwood.”

I just ordered these NK black satin platforms (i hope they run true to size, not running large? leyla do you know?)



(above photos from brownsfashion.com)

Am wondering if I should also get these but in PURPLE satin.....i love that they're so unique and fashion-forward but would they look really weird at the foot? is there a modeling photo of this shoe anywhere?

so here they are. didnt manage to take proper pics of the shoes/heels




the heel is amazing.


(and they're sooo comfortable)

i was undecided between these and the mary janes version of http://www.brownsfashion.com/public/...rd/94326_1.jpg
these but the mjs looked strange on my feet. and i dont like that flat part in the toebox.

labella,
those are the BEST. are you sure those are in suede though. i know it looks like it but the only ones i saw in suede were the croc ones. they made them look like suede.
i am guessing these are sarah rutsons feet. maybe she stocks them in her store?
