First look: Nicholas Kirkwood for Men

Kirkwood for his gorgeous, colorful and attention-demanding heels. Now
Kirkwood — who was named accessories designer of the year at the British

line for dudes.
Launched during London’s Mens show on Tuesday, the new collection
consists of six styles — including oxfords, boots, slippers and sneakers — in 21 cool and playful variations such as colored zigzags, metallics and
studs. The line hits stores in July and ranges in price from $520 to
