VIDEO: Nicholas Kirkwood x Keith Haring The Shoe Designer Launches His New Boutique With a Collection Dedicated To The Pop Artist

Nicholas Kirkwood details the making of his new thigh-high leopard print and Swarovski crystal–encrusted roller skates in today’s film. The dazzling boots are the highlight of the British shoe designer’s one-off couture line of Keith Haring–inspired art shoes. “I’ve grown up with Keith Haring’s work around me. It’s so ubiquitous, you saw it before you even knew it was art,” Kirkwood says of the 80s pop artist. “The bold colors, defined shapes and edges––that aspect of it, to me, made it perfect for a shoe.” Having previewed the line at his first exclusive retail space in Hong Kong’s JOYCE in September 2010, the designer is exhibiting the collection in its entirety at his new London boutique until July 1. The architectural offerings, which also include heels emblazoned with the artist’s “Radiant Baby” and “Safe Sex” renderings, mark the latest in a string of collaborations for the fashion world darling, who has joined forces with the likes of Erdem and Rodarte outside of his own namesake line.

BIG Thankyou to everyone at NOWNESS for letting us show the film.
