Nicolas Kirkwood named creative director at Pollini

The God of Fierce Shoes Nicolas Kirkwood – famous for creating all the footwear for Rodarte and counting fans among celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker, Kylie Minogue and Jessica Alba – has been appointed as the creative director of Italian label Pollini. The ready-to-wear line, which was formerly under Jonathan Saunder’s charge, will be shut down to give way to focus on accessories.
The next Pollini collection will be unveiled at Milan Fashion Week at the end of the month.
