NYFW the Shows: Nicholas K Spring 2017 Collection

Forget survival of the fittest, it was survival of the most fashionable at the Nicholas K Spring 2017 Show during NYFW the Shows. Inspired by the Middle East desert-based 2015 movie Theeb, the Nicholas K Spring 2017 Collection captivated its audience with a collection and color palette that perfectly captured the stunning cinematography of the adventurous film.

The collection, titled “Wadi Rum”, so named for the valley that cuts into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan and  the route of the movie’s characters, pays tribute to the untouched and steadfast location, also known as The Valley of the Moon.*Some of you may recognize this famed location in other movies such as Lawrence of Arabia, Red Planet, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Prometheus, and most recently, The Martian. The valley’s sustainability is the source of inspiration and design for the brother-sister design duo behind the chic women’s fashion label. The Nicholas K Spring 2017 Collection boasts artisan woven fabrics, organic cotton, vegetable-dyed leather, and alpaca construct layered pieces that shape and manipulate the proportions of varied silhouettes.

Varied shades of nudes, with a pop of silver here and there, permeated the Nicholas K Spring 2017 Collection. Everything from the dusty color palette to the oversized desert hats, and Military-inspired, tactical waist packs, added to the adventurous allure of the stunning collection. With the way the heat and humidity have been treating us, the looks from the Nicholas K Spring 2017 Collection would be worn quite comfortably in today’s scorching temperatures (hello see now, buy now fashionistas). We loved every single piece and it’s no question, the items will fly off store hangers as soon as they are placed on the racks. Bravo to brother and sister team, Nicholas and Christopher Kunz, the collection is gorgeous and we can’t help but wonder if somewhere, Kanye West is thinking “so that’s how you do fashion”.

NYFW the Shows: Nicholas K Fall 2016 Collection

The Nicholas K Fall 2016 Collection fashion show was our first (and only) early morning show during this season of NYFW the Shows, and with their mesmerizing looks, the brother and sister design duo certainly made this early bird happy. We’ve always enjoyed the lush, layered looks from Nicholas K, which was wonderfully in abundance at their Fall 2016 Collection show.

This season’s collection was inspired by architect Paolo Soleri’s concept of Arcology, a “vision of architectural design principles for very densely populated habitats”; the marriage of architecture and ecology. If you’re a gamer, have seen the Matrix movies, or season four of sci-fi show Andromeda, you’ve noticed these amazingly designed, self-contained, densely populated habitats. This inspiration perfectly embodies the Nicholas K Fall 2016 Collection, which has always branded itself as nomadic fashion, with looks that, much like its wearers, flow from season to season and could be integrated seamlessly into various aspects of  our lives. The brand continues to offer luxurious everyday sportswear with an urban edge.

The collection’s palette featured muted hues, and included such tones as aubergine, amethyst, mauve, black, iris, earth, smoke, dust, etc and boasted draping silhouettes of tunics, kaftans, ponchos, reversible silk and knitted dresses, convertible shirts, and our favorite….jumpers. The collection also highlighted a fabrication we’re excited for, velvet! Lots of looks were seen in decadent silk velvet (are we the only ones who likes to pet the luxe fabric?), which joined other luxurious fabrics like pony fur, stretch silk satin, merino wool, Australian wool, and lambskin.

What do you think of the Nicholas K Fall 2016 Collection? Are you ready to upgrade your wardrobe to a more nomadic way of style? Let us know in the comments.
