Gorgeous marriage of indulgent Chambord tones and the designer’s trademark craftsmanship


Designer of the moment, Nicholas Kirkwood, has partnered with Chambord black raspberry liqueur to create an exquisite limited edition shoe. The Chambord, which was inspired by the sumptuous detailing of the luxury liqueur, will be exclusively available in his flagship store on Mount Street from December.

Nicholas Kirkwood, who has created catwalk shoes for designers including Erdem, Suno, Peter Pilotto, Roksanda Ilincic and is currently Creative Director of Pollini, has been working with Chambord on the exclusive design. The rich Chambord purple is brought to life by the signature architectural quality of his design and the innovative use of material which he has become so famous for.

Printed velvet, inspired by the Chambord imagery and colouring, is applied to Kirkwood’s classic pump whilst the gold hammered chrome heel with his signature detailing finishes off the design.

Nicholas Kirkwood, Designer, comments: ‘I had previously worked with Chambord for my London store opening and was excited to be able to lend my hand to create an exclusive style inspired by the liqueur.  I looked to the luxurious look and feel of the drink as well as the way it is packaged – the use of the rich fabrications such as the velvet and gold chrome fabrications were key to conveying this in the design.’


Charlotte Ashburner, Senior Brand Manager at Chambord comments: ‘Chambord has always been a fashionable edition to any cocktail and it’s wonderful to see how Nicholas Kirkwood has captured this mood and style in such a beautiful shoe.’
