There’s something special about Nicholas Kirkwood collection for Pollini. He cooked a pretty impressive menu for the Spring Summer 2011 season through the Forward Designer initiative.
Bringing together Louise Gray, Manish Arora, Meadham Kirchoff, Michael Van Der Ham and Preen feels more like celebrating fashion and design more than trying to establish trends and moods. However, the designs look great and honor Kirkwood appointment as Pollini’s creative director. I wonder if he will continue the Forward Designer project for the upcoming seasons and also if people consider he diluted his edginess by bringing other designers on board. What would you say, judging by the look of the SS11 Pollini collection with Kirckwood as creative director? (via)
