Legendary British footwear designer Nicholas Kirkwood has teamed up with Chambord to create a signature shoe inspired by the luxurious black raspberry liqueur. The shoe has not year been released, but judging by the images we've seen from the designer's sketch book, it's going to be pretty special.

Here's a sketch showing the design of the shoe, which is due to launch in Kirkwood's Mount Street store in London next month. The pink section represents printed velvet:

The shoe is based around a familiar Nicholas Kirkwood silhouette, including a gold hammered chrome heel shaped in his signature style. Kirkwood said of the shoe: '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.'

We look forward to getting to meet the shoe 'in the flesh' at the launch at Kirkwood's flagship London store in December!
