Kirkwood for Wonderland? Now this is dreamy! Nicholas Kirkwood was recently asked by Printemps department store to create a special shoe for a window display to be revealed at the same time as Tim Burton-directed “Alice in Wonderland,” which opens March 5.
Kirkwood is the only accessories designer invited to participate. Printemps also invited Haider Ackermann, Charles Anastase, Manish Arora, Chloé, Ann Demeulemeester, Christopher Kane, Alexander McQueen, Maison Martin Margiela and Bernhard Willhelm to interpret Alice’s dress. I will be in Milan in March and am now tempted to stop in Paris just to see the window displays at Printemps!
