Nicholas Kirkwood let loose a rainbow of color, pattern, and shine for his fourth men’s collection, which was presented in tandem with a film called "Walk" that was projected onto six large screens at Mercer Street Studios.
While the designer adhered to traditional shapes, he added contrast stitching and borders, materials such as rubberized leather or wet-looking spazzolato; and a gutsy color palette. There were lace-ups the color of mint macaroons; two-tone slip-ons in white and dusty pink; and brogues with toecaps made from a metallic, technical sports mesh. Other lace-ups had a coppery or electric blue shine — as if they were covered in candy foil — while evening loafers came in bold candy stripes.
