Being back in the UK means that when I type in Vogue.com, I have to put in the extra "?us_site=y" to get you to the American site and this season with their new redesign gives me plenty of reason to do so.  Style.com seem to cherry pick the shows that get detail shots whereas the US Vogue site has them ready to nab in blogger-friendly sizes for the shows they're reviewing (though in turn, they're also being selective with shows).  For LFW though, most of my faves have been covered with some devillishly big images and in particular, it has documented all of Nicholas Kirkwood shoe collabs as well as the ones he has done for Pollini.  He's really been pumping this out this season under his own label as well as his new creative directorship for Pollini which has now decided to concentrate purely on accessories. 

Alright, so you see a few more leg/feet boo-boos than you nromally would but then again, it's all about the shoe and I'm not going to be all disparaging on models who have to undergo so much feet strain in one month.  These are the Pollini for Michael Van Der Ham shoes all velvet-y and wonderfully chunky…

I've got plenty of words to say on Meadham Kirchhoff's latest collection but I'll start with the feet and work my way up perhaps.  These perhaps don't scream Pollini but under the guidance of Nicholas Kirkwood, they are totally apt for this collection and I love how the shoes will be decorated in a way that means there'll be slight differentiation with each pair.  I guess they sort of run in a similar tract to the holographic shoes I got from Beacon's Closet for ¬£20 which I wear a lot… except there's a whole lot more glitter, a lot more embellishment and in general, MORE MORE MORE.  I guess you'll be seeing the triple M's a lot this week.

I also love the preview features that Vogue.com did with the designers including a sketch/prototype of these magical shoes…

Pretty, pretty Erdem made me clasp my hands together in delight on Bedford Square like the sad child that I am.  More on that later but here the shoes take precedence as these sandals made in collaboration with Nicholas Kirkwood (not for Pollini but for his own label…) in addition to the ones he worked on with Peter Pilotto are on pre-sale NOW for another four days and seven hours or so.  I had a bit of a disaster getting to Peter Pilotto's show so thank god for the detail shots where you grasp the full structural beauty of these decidedly more polished heels that matched the equally slick collection.

  20. The Meadham Kirchhoff shoes are gorgeous, though I worry for the models’s feet after seeing the makes on one of the feet! It must get painful, and hardly makes the shoes look good (though I imagine they’d look worse without them!)

  21. Tina says:

    I don’t like them. Their forms just don’t work at all, for me.

  22. Alex says:

    I was surprized of the feet and realized that the models are human, we are human, why we seek perfection?do we have to be perfect?

    awesome-ness!!!
    amazing shoes!
