known for his fashion-forward women's shoes, nicholas kirkwood has now dipped his toe in the pool of men's footwear. and to showcase his first men's collection, the british designer has launched a dedicated pop-up store in the leafy mayfair area. the temporary retail space boasts a stylish setting by designer mehmoosh khadivi and is more or less an extrapolation of kirkwood's london collections: men's installation that was presented last summer. using the existing fabric of the space that includes wooden panelling adorned by graphics in various shades of grey, a series of black monolithic plinths have been introduced. the addition of two motorlight wall lights [a variable angle uplighter that allows the user to adjust the beam angle between 10 and 120 degrees] in the windows create a modern and interactive setting. the nicholas kirkwood pop-up store carries the brand's entire men's a/w 2013 collection, and will be operational through mid-january of next year. mind you, it's to be followed by a men's dedicated website and online store next month. location: 109 mount street [mayfair].
