Kirkwood x Haring

After undergoing a few quarters in an art school, I quickly learned the line between art and fashion is a thin one that artist and designers alike are NOT afraid cross. Although the fusion between the two isn’t always easy to accomplish, this is a path that artist and designers choose to take. Without the right inspiration, vision, and ultimately the PERFECT final product, the mission will be incomplete.

Ok, ok… Enough with my rambling. Let me just get to the point. Nicholas Kirkwood, famed shoe and accessory designer had a brilliant idea.  His soon to be released shoe collection, debuting  february 2011, is inspired by Pop Art of the Late Keith Haring. This is a perfect example of Kirkwood’s art inspired asthetic, representing the apprecation he has for  his work and the work of Haring as well. Kirkwood’s spark for this collection came after he watched a documentary on Haring’s life and the brilliant Pop Art he was creating throughout the 80’s. The verdict resulted in a 12 piece assemblage of shoes, including a pair of rare Kirkwood flats!

For eight days and eight days only, Kirkwood will open an online pop up shop during London Fashion Week. Here you’ll be able to purchase RARE Kirkwood designs only seen on the runways! To take a further look into the life of Artist Keith haring, visit him here.
