Nicholas Kirkwood x Keith Haring

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Nicholas Kirkwood can find inspiration anywhere. After watching The Universe of Keith Haring, Kirkwood couldn’t get the visionary artist out of his mind. Determined to incorporate Haring’s graphic designs into his footwear, Kirkwood approached The Keith Haring Foundation with a proposition, and now we have a highly anticipated new collaboration.


The collection features 12 styles including Kirkwood’s first ballerina flat. Exciting! The styles range from wearable to impossible. Perfect considering Haring’s ability to straddle the line between the eclectic and the mainstream. Our favorite is Kirkwood’s peep-toe bootie, which makes us reminiscence on Haring’s commemorative mural at the corner of Bowery and Houston in NYC. The full collection will be available February 2011, with a special pre-sale during London Fashion Week this month. If you haven’t made your way up to the MoMA yet to take in a Haring, don’t worry. Come next spring, all you’ll have to do is look down.
