There are few concepts that can be twisted and managed to speak the Nicholas K aesthetic; utilitarian is one of those. For Spring 2016, Nicholas and Christopher Kunz had been looking to the fluidity and beauty of parachutes and flight gear. Nearly every single look in their collection had an intriguing element of exploration and purpose.
Their future nomads came in long robes, mostly wrapped with wide belting or straps around the waist, or other times in slouchier maxi dresses with hooded necklines.Their play with deep-dyed ombré gave an interesting color combination, with light colors that faded to dark. Denim had its appearance too, and it offered the right balance to the complex layering of the collection. While their nylon capes, skirts and dresses with pulling-drawstring cords might satisfy the editorial crave from stylist and editors, those will be practical enough for the rainy days of September.
