It’s always a treat to go to a Nicholas K show. The designer makes it hard to call the game as an umpire especially when the feeling is it’s going to be a good show. K’s collection this season first brought to mind a post apocalyptic wasteland filled with highly fashionable models and accessories to boot. Think more along the lines of Book of Eli set off somewhere in the desert. His strong urban inspired themes came through with a hooded eggshell colored sleveless pieces that draped in many folds on the female model. This set off the collection because I knew personally I wouldn’t see anything like it again for the remainder of fashion week (this includes Milan, Paris and London). He followed up with a fur lined neck and patterned shawl/throw that is a luxuriously indulgent must have. His skinny leather pants with fur lined hooded coat won’t make any friends at PETA but again was another winner. K went with the much darker hues that we’ve been seeing for the season. It’s as if the New York uniformed color of black is being sung from the mountaintops at fashion week. We’re not letting it go.
A very worthy effort from Nicholas K.
