The Style Senders’ Fashion Week started out with the viewing of a neutral calming collection by design duo Nicholas K. on September, 5th 2013.
For Spring 2014, the designer siblings were inspired by Shamanism and an American Indian – Apache reservation in-which they grew up on. (A shaman is a person regarded as having access to, and influence in, the world of benevolent and malevolent spirits, who typically enters into a trance state during a ritual, and practices divination and healing.)
This clean, loosely draped and structured collection was a treat to the eye for sportswear! Splashes of easy yet sophisticated elements ran through each garment as they came down the runway! The color story was pure in the scheme of whites, grays, black & earth tones like the color titled “earth” which was a very warm brown resembling mud clay! Simple feather headdresses worn added a warrior feel to the free-spirited collection that consisted of thinly knit sweaters, long cargo shorts, and cropped leather jackets for the women and very much of the same just with a twist of more structured garments that complemented button downs and Henley shirts. . Most of the collection even for the men, was designed to be over-sized. Something different from the mainstay of most recent silhouettes shows by other designers.
Nicholas K.’s clothing for spring will be a hit. Lightweight, flowing, simple and chic for a hot day in the sun or getting sandy at the beach!
