The Nicholas Kirkwood Fall/Winter 2014 collection gets straight to the point. A sleek pointed toe defines almost every shoe in the collection from snakeskin heels to flat boots. Metallic jacquard and platino chromed heels – short stacked for the sensible, yet vibrant set – and loafers will be all the rage at long holiday parties when stilettos are best left at home. Then again, with these lush blue and purple suede pumps, a little pain might be in order. The best of the collection are the blacks – an embroidered suede bootie, Mary Jane ankle strap pump, and bejeweled dot lace ballet flat, accented with his signature Hexagon Toe. Estimated delivery falls between July 1 and September 30, so it will definitely be a waiting game. Some things are worth waiting for, though! Pre-order from $590 to $1,595 on Moda Operandi.
