Cov­ered in mir­rored pan­elling and white spa­ces, Phillip K Smith III’s ‘Lu­cid Stead’ in­stal­la­tion in the Cal­i­for­nian High Desert be­came the launch pad for Ni­cholas Kirk­wood’s Spring/ Sum­mer ’16 col­lec­tion. “I was study­ing neg­a­tive spa­ces and their pos­i­tive ef­fects,” said the Bri­tish shoe­maker, whose re­cent col­lec­tion stud­ied these il­lu­sions. “I was par­tic­u­larly drawn to how the re­flec­tive, in­ter­rupted sur­face of the ‘shed’ cre­ated il­lu­sions of cam­ou­flage and in­vis­i­bil­ity, draw­ing your fo­cus to the sur­round­ing shapes and ab­stract pres­ence of the wood cabin.” Case in point: Kirk­wood’s cut-out heels and laceup glad­i­a­tors in Tech­ni­color brights that took colour­ing be­yond the lines, and to a whole new level.
