Nicholas Kirkwood’s Oz Inspired Shoe Designs at Selfridge’s Shoe Carnival

03/5/2013

 

 

 

Earlier this year we posted about Stuart  Weitzman designing for Broadway’s Cinderella. Well now,  Nicholas Kirkwood has joined the fantasy world and has with Disney to create a four-piece collection of heels fit for any real-life heroine. The capsule collection is inspired by Disney’s latest offering, Oz The Great and Powerful, with each pair drawing inspiration from a lead character: the Wizard, Glinda, Evanora, and Theodora.

These unique shoes range from crystal-encrusted heels to black-and-ruby-sequined boots, and — a first for Kirkwood — a men’s brogue. The shoes are currently on display as part of Selfridge’s Shoe Carnival. And the costumes worn by James Franco, Michelle Williams, and the rest of the cast feature in the department store’s window display as well!

If you are fortunate enough to get a chance to see it in person, we are totally jealous! But if not, here’s a glimpse!
