Like fellow designers Alexander Wang and Nicolas Ghesquière, Nicholas Kirkwood is a reluctant toe-dipper into social media. He tells Footwear News that he has never visited his brand's own Facebook page. He is thinking about getting more involved in the digital world, but in his own good time.
There’s a way to do it, but not necessarily the obvious way. I don’t think I could live with myself if I started tweeting things like, ‘Look at these great shoes that just came in.’ I’ve always found that vile.
Also in the works for the designer, who sold a majority stake to LVMH last year: bags. He's also considering going into sunglasses, jewelry, and small leather goods. But first, a visit to that Facebook page.
