For this collection, siblings Nicholas and Christopher Kunz took their inspiration from 19th and early 20th Century Arctic explorers, offering up a heavily layered, highly styled series of looks to evoke both the region and the people who attempted to conquer it. Creamy whites and beiges give way to blacks and muted colors; ice, sky (both day and night), minimal vegetation and rocks – it’s all here. As always with a Nicholas K show, you have to mentally break down each look into its components in order to see what it is you’re looking at. Once you get past all the layering, you’re left with a range of garments, from highly wearable to highly unusual. Like always, it’s never a boring show.
