Shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood launches his new London boutique (located on Mount Street) with a footwear collection dedicated to Pop artist, Keith Haring.  Inspired by bold colors, defined shapes and edges- Kirkwood incorporated Haring’s iconic “Radiant Baby and Safe Sex” renderings on a series of architectural pump, sandal and hybrid boot silhouettes.  The thigh-high Paris stretch roller skate boot was encrusted in over 100,000 Swarovski crystals, which according to Kirkwood, “sums up the era of 80s excess and street culture…”  The exhibition ends on July 1, 2011.
