KIRKWOOD ON THE RUNWAY: Footwear designer Nicholas Kirkwood will add a collection with London-based label Peter Pilotto to his portfolio come fall. The designer has partnered with the label’s designers, Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, who are known for their prints, to design two shoe styles. They will make their debuts at the Peter Pilotto spring runway show at London Fashion Week in September, and will then wholesale from October. Kirkwood has been designing the label’s runway shoes for two seasons, but spring marks the first time the collection will go into production. “Nicholas has a commitment to quality and accuracy, coupled with sensitivity for what is needed to help bring a vision to reality,” said Pilotto and De Vos. It’s not Kirkwood’s first fashion collaboration — he’s designed footwear for Rodarte for five seasons and Erdem for two seasons. Those collections are sold at stores including Dover Street Market and Harvey Nichols in London and Opening Ceremony in New York.
