Nicholas K Spring / Summer 2015 is inspired by Swiss explorer Isabelle Eberhardt in the early 1900s. The collection is utilitarian and Sahara Desert chic with draped tops, scrunched-up cargo pants, tank dresses and jumpers in lightweight layers of silk, satin cotton and jersey knits fabrics. The palette includes olive, khaki, off white, cream, black and turquoise.
Leather accents can be seen on sweaters, leggings and pants. Nicholas K always has incredible leather pieces, with my favorite piece being the black leather jacket. There was also one dress that caught my eye, since it was made with Pilot Pens across the front. Accessories included one-shoulder bags, head wraps, horse hair jewelry by Victoria Simes, watches by Casio G-Shock, eyewear by Julbo, belts by Rilleau Leather and lace-up heels by Kiyoon Baek x Nicholas K.
Since Nicholas K is one of my favorite designers, I've never missed their fashion show since they've been showing at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. One thing that was missing from the runway were menswear looks, with the sole focus on their women's collection.
