Nicholas K Fall 2011 Collection
We absolutely ADORED this collection when we saw it walk the runway, especially the menswear. What can we say? We’re biased. It’s kind of a shame that the pictures don’t really tell the whole story. In person, these clothes moved beautifully and the materials and construction were of the highest quality. The kind of clothes you look at when you see someone wearing them.
“I was inspired by the woods and rustic living; the survival instinct and going back to primitive ways. The fall colors of the forest are reflected in the palette and overall aesthetic and I used a lot of texture and incorporated Navajo inspired prints. Think log homes, gypsies, stone fireplaces, owls, camping and migration,” explains Nicholas.
Thankfully, the collection isn’t as literal to that inspiration as we first feared. There’s definitely a “cabin” feel to these clothes, but we’d never use the word “rustic” to describe them. On the contrary; even with its flannel-y plaids, cable-knit sweaters , boots and petticoat skirts, all rendered in rich, autumnal shades, this collection strikes us as urban to the core.
