NicholasK Look35 NYFW Review & Photos: Nicholas K Fall/Winter 2013

On Thursday, Friday 7, 2013 Nicholas K presented their Fall/Winter 2013 collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The duo sibling team, Nicholas Kunz and Christopher Kunz, pulled inspiration from the époque of the Arctic explorations in the late 19th to early 20th century.

Pulling from the cold sceneries and the warm wears of the adventurers and Inuits alike, this collection flaunts these tones in wools, cottons, and prints reminiscent of the shades, shapes, and colors existent only in this chilling realm. Fluttering fabrics evoke the essence of the harsh white blizzards to the deep hidden world of the Arctic Ocean. Adding their own aesthetic to the utilitarian polar basics of the many explorers and natives comes the unique use of knitted raccoon hair, rich wool blends, light flowing knits, chunky plush sweaters, glacier hued plaids, angular cuts, and utilitarian closures. The shifted drapery and asymmetrical tailoring allows for full-on layering of the soft fabrics while still emanating the exceptional palette of color in this collection drawn from the Arctic world.

With the mixture of furs, layers and draping, the collection screams chic Eskimo.  Beyond the look, the collection seems very comfortable, almost like lounge wear, but in a good way. The collections gets a thumbs up from us.

Check out the full menswear collection below:
