Fall is upon us—and so is the closing weekend of Nicholas Kirkwood’s summer pop-up at Bal Harbour Shops (9700 Collins Ave., Store 147, 305-861-1884), which means Miamians have until this Sunday, August 24 to pick up übertrendy women’s and men’s footwear from the British designer’s spring/summer 2014 collection. To bid farewell to the temporary shoe haven (and welcome fall fashion season), we asked Kirkwood to tell us how he transitions his fashion and beauty routine.

From his own Bal Harbour pop-up, Kirkwood picked out oxfords with metallic accents (pictured above). "These are perfect for going from summer into fall with their transient color way and sports mesh fabric,” he said.

Kiehl's Facial Fuel.

Kirkwood's go-to moisturizer is Kiehl's energizing facial treatment for men. "This product has been great for transitioning into colder seasons for me, when your skin is trying to adjust to a drier climate," he said.

For the busy fall fashion season, Kirkwood needs “something quite light and easy to travel with,” like this heather grey cashmere pullover for a chilly evening.

Kenzo Zig-Zag Socks.

Kenzo Zig-Zag Socks ($29).

When Kirkwood lands in a cooler climate, he has a pair of funky socks packed and ready. “Decent socks are essential and are key items for any wardrobe at any time of the year,” he told us. “I tend to have some fun with mine when it comes to color and prints.”

Hermès Arion Weekend Bag.

Kirkwood chose this durable leather holdall to “get me through the seasons and especially going into winter. In the summer it's good to have something a bit lighter, but I'm in favor of good leather accessories.”
