The Summer Set: PVC Done Right

Nicholas Kirkwood Laser-Cut Leather Pumps

Nicholas Kirkwood Laser-Cut Leather Pumps: The Art of Floral Arrangement

It looks like Alaïa might have some competition in the laser-cutting department! From a distance these Kirkwoods seem as if they might be constructed from sweetly scalloped lace or cork, but closer inspection reveals luxe, nude leather. The spiky metal heel and pointed toe make for a shoe that’s somewhat different from your usual, light spring fair, and I mean that in the best way.
