      It’s very urban, reminds me quite a bit of Kara Saun’s PR collection. That guy in the denim coveralls is missing his white oval patch with Larry in red on it. How will I know what his name is while he’s fixing my car without it?

    • Diego!

      *gasps* OMG… This is fashion forward… it has a futuristic look without being an astronaut suit. I love this collection! Bravo Nicholas K!

    • janeyq

      was the inspiration for this collection james bond villains circa golden eye?

      • jspark

        More like denim crotch curtains.

      This is on trend with what I see going on in downtown.

      • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

        I don’t know where your downtown is.. mine, I see plenty of butt crack, but zero naked hip as a surprise, or rope bracelets.. :)

        I think I prefer the naked hip to butt crack, however.. I suspect these pants would give more butt crack as a surprise without the long shirts hanging over the top, and I can’t guarantee my downtown peeps are going to go for the long tops, so I’m going to be wanting to post letters, put coins in the slot and park my bike all the live long day if this becomes the trend here.

        One might take to ones bed in a darkened room, should that occur. There is only so much butt crack one can take.. :)

        • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

          Did you see the episode of “Community” about the butt crack bandit?

          • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

            Sadly no, this show is still on my to-watch list. I will get to it one day.. :)

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

          I’m in downtown LA. There’s a mix of professionals and skid row and the natives have begun to adopt a look that combines both, which is what this collection looks like to me.

          • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

            As a NorCal native, this collection definitely had me thinking I know some folks who would wear this stuff.

    • Deac82

      I see that Catching Fire is a heavy influence–especially on some of the knitted pieces.

    • PastryGoddess

      Well, “it’s a look” as they say

    • Ginger

      Thoughts:
      1. Who knew that my crying-all-night makeup would find it’s way onto a runway?
      2. I wonder if models weep with joy when they see that a designer provides flat/somewhat comfortable shoes for them to wear in a show (hence the makeup, possibly?)
      3. I’m thoroughly digging the collection. It’s pretty awesome…even in it’s glumness.

    • Sunraya

      Some of the separates are OK, and a coat and jacket, but most of these look like clothes I find when I am rifling through bins at Goodwill. Actually, my son, daughter and their friends who live in NYC and Brooklyn dress like this, and that is actually where they get most of their clothes. Oh, and the Salvation Army.

    • CatherineRhodes

      Getting an 80s-era Girbaud vibe.

      • Imasewsure

        My 80’s wardrobe… ah yes… Girbaud! I forgot about them… :)

    • SewingSiren

      The bare hips, chests, and torsos are giving me a chill.

      • ralish

        Yes! I also wonder what weather conditions would prompt someone to bare their hip bones, and then decide to cover their entire head in fur.

      • FrigidDiva

        I was thinking the same thing. Perhaps where he experiences fall isn’t like where I experience fall. In ND fall is more like a preview of winter with snow starting in October.

      • Jackie4g

        Where do you wear this stuff?

      • joything

        Gahd, yes – speaking from the subzero Midwest, I cheer for the coats and the boots, and yell COVER YOUR BELLIES YOU SILLY GITS!

        • SierraDelta

          At this time of year in the subzero Midwest, exposed flesh freezes in less time than it takes to drink a cup of coffee.

    • Danielle

      If you need fur on your head, you don’t need side cut outs.

    • ralish

      This is so very not my style, but I do love some of the knit pieces. I really do not care for the “whoops, I wet myself” pants.

      • FrigidDiva

        I’m glad I’m not the only one that saw that!

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

      T.Lo tweeted that Nicholas K had exquisite taste in boy models and I concur. The clothes have an aesthetic that I admire but would never wear – sort of post-apocalyptic Judi Dench.

      • kimmeister

        I was pleased to see the diversity in the model selection.

        • demidaemon

          Yes, the boys are pretty, once you can suss them out underneath all that mess.

    • Anna

      Getting Lisbeth Salander from the hair and a few of the women’s leather pieces. Love the black funnel-neck coat.

      • Melanie

        same – i don’t know if the designer is scandinavian but it’s all very “girl with the dragon tattoo” à la david fincher.

        • Anna

          I think they’re American, but yeah it definitely has that look.

    • RussellH88

      It’s kinda like Lisbeth Salander by way of Angela Chase, right?

      • filmcricket

        Nailed it.

    • FrigidDiva

      That rope-as-bracelet deal makes me think the model escaped from a band of kidnappers who stashed them at a fish market while making a ransom demand, hence the reason for the rubber boots.

      • YoungSally

        They were being held by the Dolce and Gabbana advert fishmongers!!

        • Jacob Bowen

          They could hold me FOREVER!

      • penguinmom

        Thank you. Hate the dangling rope bracelets.

    • GinaGeo

      Communist Block Clubhouse Chic

    • MilaXX

      Lord help me I like this. It’s very urban and at times a bit cray cray, but I like it.

      • Jessica Freeman

        Miley will, and she will let you down so hard.

        • MilaXX

          Ugh! Anybody but her. I’d rather Roonry Mara or better yet, let Lupita give it her special brand of elegance

    • Jessica Freeman

      This is all just crazy in a way I will never understand.

    • Alyssa_T_Robot

      i can’t believe everyone doesn’t loooove this like i do?!

      • Imasewsure

        It looks like cool, “real people” clothes which I like but I just can’t get excited about an entire collection of it I guess… definitely looks a lot of these pieces are worth investing in though (and most of the stuff we see is definitely just show)

    • Sabin

      I would’ve loved some of these in the late 80s. When I was young enoug to wear them. Minus the droopy drawers and uncomfortable bare areas.

      • conniemd

        The baggy pants and dropped crotches just kill it for me.

    • susan6

      Costuming for a movie set in a post-apocalyptic Russian prison?

      • kimmeister

        I was thinking the movie was about hipster Germans who go on a trek through the Himalayas.

    • oklund

      I like a lot of this, but not the pants that look like the models peed themselves.

      • Clash D

        Amen! Here I thought I was the only one who saw that. I’m not crazy after all.

    • another_laura

      I like so much of this, the palette, the urban style, but I am completely turned off by the use of fur, and it doesn’t look like faux. Have to express it.

    • @Biting Panda

      Katniss Everdeen realness.

      • mjude

        or Divergent…..

    • TheOtherChristina

      This is not my favorite Nicholas K collection, but there’s a lot to like here. Hate me if you must, but the floor-length white shirting dress is totally doing it for me, and my cats would enjoy the necklace for sure. Not loving the pee pants and crotch pockets.

    • Imasewsure

      Even though this collection shows the range of my own color palette, I just can’t get excited about it. Probably more interesting in person…

    • somebody blonde

      Not sure if I like the clothes, but kudos for the models of color.

    • Suzanne Moore

      inspired by Road Warrior!

    • Lower L

      Photo 1: Sorry, but if you have the model wearing a shirt-tail apron to disguise the fact that the waistband of her pants is hovering at clitoris level, you should either embrace it and make your designs way more cracktastic and weird, or you need to dial it back to something actual people could wear. This middle ground is strange.

      • kimmeister

        The garment that is cinching in the shirt-tail apron is bizarre too. What is that? A cardigan just for the waist?

    • Kate4queen

      Not my thing. Not pretty enough LOL

    • Lilithcat

      I need that furry hood right now.

      Lilithcat, sick of snow and cold.

    • boweryboy

      Well. It’s not boring. I’ll give him that.

    • Gatto Nero

      Shades of Rick Owens, Alexander Wang, Ann D.
      Nice — kind of up my alley — but nothing new.

    • amf0001

      okay, I know what I am wearing to the zombie apocolypse

    • BEE DAYY

      Very project runway finale collectionish

    • filmcricket

      The 90s are back in a big way, aren’t they?

    • MzzPants

      My daughter, Emo Girl, would rock these looks. She doesn’t belly baring under 80 degrees, though.

    • uprightcitizen

      Some of the men’s pieces are super cool and would look good on a lot of guys. The fur-trapper hood/scarves are ugly on the men and the women. They’re so incongruous with the urban lines of the rest of it. Dr. Zhivago meets Bladerunner? Exposed hip bones on a day when you need a a fur helmet on your head is pretty silly, though.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      A little too post-apocalyptic for my taste, but very edgy and urban. My favorite color – black.

    • lalahartma

      I like these, but of course I would just look like a slob. Yay, 90s!!

    • AmeliaEve

      Weird castaway quality to these. Too bad Tilda Swinton already nabbed Gilligan’s shoes.

    • SierraDelta

      Why, yes, this is perfect for Minnesota winters. *snort*

    • rebeemoon

      This sort of reminds me of Michelle’s PR collection, no?

    • Trickytrisha

      I’m surprised he didn’t make the male models wear those ratty black wigs too. Plus nothing says high fashion like wrapping a hunk of rabbit skin around your face or head.

    • quiltrx

      My head is freezing, but my abs need some air.
      This seems too much weird-for-weirdness’-sake to me. Trying too hard.

    • israel8491

      This year’s theme: Sochi Hobo Chic

    • anotherkate

      These pieces are fabulous. We shall ignore the clodhoppers, however.

    • Clash D

      I’m torn. I like the collection as a whole but the crotch zipper (photo #16) and pants cut outs that look like pee stains are eww.

    • demidaemon

      So, the inspiration was obviously Bjork, right?

      I’m so confused, both on how this qualifies as Fall (so many bare midriffs!) and just in general really. I don’t get it.

    • bringbackbeatles

      Love, love, love this! No denim jumpsuits for men, though, please.
