Brother and sister team, Nicholas and Christopher Kunz, brought the quintessential Nicolas K look to the tents opening Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with the first designer show of the season. We expected “moody cool” and we got it. The trademark muted stormy seas palette of blues, purples, grays and tans were present in the clothing, but also traveled to the makeup, a charcoal smoky eye, and nails, a charcoal grey and slate blue French manicure. Hair was right on trend slicked back with wavy cascades down the back.



For a while now, we have been seeing drape jackets with little to no detailing - it’s all about the undulating folds and eye catching fabric combinations. Nicolas K puts their own stamp on this trend with jackets that seem less likely to end up in your “Oh So Pretty” Pin Board, but maybe in “To Cool for School.” Leather detailing on jackets, sweaters, closures and belts were eye catching in a sea of flowing layers.


A grown up comfort was also evident in the snazzy sweats presented for both men and women in various colors and silhouettes. Sweater sleeves designed to stretch past your wrist - complete with thumb hole for texting and other secondary pursuits, like eating – were paired with hooded sweatshirts and structured sweatpants.
A bit of a post-apocalyptic vibe permeated throughout the collection, most likely informed by the designers inspiration intrepid Arctic explorations during the late 19th century, topped off by the jewelry, which in most cases was a weather worn stone hanging from a chain – could double as a weapon just in case.
