The Nicolas K Fall/Winter 2017 Runway Show beautifully fused together 90’s hip hop trends with modern style. Nevertheless, the inspiration behind the amazing collection has an even deeper meaning. Fashion’s rising duo is using their couture brand to start a revolution. One that they desire will give hope as well as power to the people.
Nicolas K Fall/Winter 2017 Runway Show
Nicholas and Christopher Kunz are the genius masterminds behind the Nicholas K label. The brother and sister couture designers have been deeply affected by the politics of America. From the recent ban and administration changes Nicholas and Christopher began to feel as though things in America were going backwards.
Enter their Nicolas K Fall/Winter 2017 collection. First of all, it was important to the designers to show inclusion and diversity. For their NYFW show they made sure to cast models of all shades and tones. Next, they let their clothes do the rest of the talking.
The garments are a throw back to the golden era of hip hop, the 90s. Oversized coats, slouchy pants and a bold color palette (black, gold, red) brought the decade before the 2000’s back to the catwalk.
Also, the strong accessories gave the collection a very activist and rebel vibe. Models hit the catwalk in berets, humongous septum rings as well as earrings. The resulting look immediately made us think black panther and underground grunge.
As you can see Nicolas K definitely left their mark on NYFW and we can’t wait to future designs from the growing brand. Nevertheless, there’s more to see so keep your fashionable eyes on 1966 as we bring you the hottest moments of fashion week!
