Sex thy name is Nicholas Kirkwood. It’s incredible to see the mastery this young Brit has–and the shoes he designed in collaboration with Prabal Gurung for the latter’s fall show were remarkable in their toughness and refined spirit. I love the buckle detail of the leather straps that wrap around the heel itself to come up and across the top of the foot. Talk about a bondage moment! The slightly disproportioned boots also made for a stylish talking point; smooth calf leather pieced together like layers and secured with corset detail and a singular buckle. These are undeniably a tough shoe for a no-holds-bar girl. Wallflowers need not apply.
