Nicholas K Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – New York Fashion Week

The arrival of September may signal different things to different people. For some people, it means new textbooks and lessons. For us, fashion lovers, it can mean one thing: the start of New York Fashion Week, the parade of the most widely anticipated fashion shows in the world. This year’s NYFW is here again with brand-new and exciting spring/summer 2015 fashion collections and we are more than happy to welcome it with open arms. First up is the Nicholas K spring/summer 2015 collection that has just not been unveiled.

Nicholas K Spring/Summer 2015 Collection - New York Fashion Week

Well, what did we expect from this new collection by siblings Nicholas and Christopher Kunz? We don’t know about your expectations, but the collection sure has exceeded ours, as it was utterly gorgeous and at the same time, very wearable! The outfits were wild and authentic and made us feel the tribal vibe the models were conveying (we weren’t the only ones whose mind kept wandering to the Dothraki tribe from The Game of Thrones, were we?).

The outfits had a touch of Middle Eastern culture and the whole Middle Eastern atmosphere was emphasized by the music to which the models were strolling down the runway.

The show started with models sporting dresses, jumpsuits with hoods and shorts made of loose fabric (mostly satin) in safari tones. We had always known Mrs. Kunz’s love for flowing earth tones, but this was something else. In general, the whole show was a play of contrasts between darker and lighter color shades.

At the beginning of the show, the unique combinations of black and military green and the impressive eye makeup gave the models the independent and natural look, which we are sure the designer was aiming for.

The accessories proved to be quite charming as well: leather waist bags and belts with long tassels (we’ll be honest with you: some of these belts seemed pretty complicated to tie, but we have heard that they come with instructions on how to tie them, so we think we’re safe), sunglasses that when combined with drape dresses and cargo shorts made the whole appearance of the models quite vintage in spite of being pretty sporty, and pointed toe heels with laces. But if we have to choose one piece of accessory that gave the collection its Middle Eastern charm, we will have to go with satin head wraps.

In the second part of the Nicholas K spring/summer 2015 collection show the colors took turn for lighter tones. We saw combinations of khaki coats and shorts with black leather belts, long sundresses with or without straps, skinny pants, beige knee length skirts and drape dresses. Then it was time for all-white party! Jumpsuits with side cuts, combinations of dresses with head wraps and scarves, high collar dresses did not make the collection any less tribal.

The color palette of the last part of the show featured dark bluish gray and a gorgeous combination of black and turquoise. The colors changed, but the whole spirit of the collection remained unchanging. It still conveyed the independence, the freedom every woman is craving for and showed that there’s something wild about each and every one of us.

What a wonderful way to open New York Fashion Week spring 15! We bow down to you Mrs. Nicholas!
