Nicholas Kirkwood is famous for his asymmetric platform which he improves with new features every season. He adds pearls, wood, cork, leather ...he used every material for his plateau and this season he also showed a more "soft" version of it that make the shoes quite new. The feathers and the mongolian fur creates a nice effect that was never obtains on shoes (mongolian fur is more often used for coats). He also created exaggerate wedges and triangular heels, as well as "crooked" ones so the shoes get a new identity, The shoes that he created for the f/w 2011 of Rodarte are influenced by the Mulleavy's collection which took inspiration from Amish communities and Kansas. So we can see classic shoes with new pattern, for Erdem he just uses the print of the brand and put it on the shoes. In the end we can see a lcd shoes which is characteristic for the heel that reminds the "prickle heel" of Roger Vivier he just "moved" the prickle.
