Nicholas K spring/summer 2017 collection catwalk show for NYFW
On day one, fashion darlings and NYFW veterans Nicholas K started New York Fashion Week with a bang.
Held at Skylight Moynihan Station, the morning show was inspired by THEEB, a 2014 dramatic film about two Bedouin brothers fighting for survival in the desert. The emotional movie was translated to the catwalk with colours of the desert, minimalistic themes and structured emphasis on clean lines and minimalistic sophistication.
The New York based sibling duo has always reached for inspiration from exotic destinations mixed with urban flair, and this year is no exception to the rule. The models floated down the runway in flowing, soft materials, flowy pants and loose outfits. The shimmering sand colours reflected pure elegance and effortlessness, as comfort met sensibility in ultra-neutral palettes under oversized floppy hats. Outfits were showcased as a rainbow of taupe, beige, browns, gray and black; each look was more elaborate than the last.
This collection’s bottom line is versatility; working it’s way from season to season. In line with the brand’s minimalist values, the pieces not only are well crafted and comfortable, but also are aesthetically pleasing.
Nicolas K have been featured in media over the years including The New York Times, Vogue, Esquire and Elle, as well as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
