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?
*gasps* OMG… This is fashion forward… it has a futuristic look without being an astronaut suit. I love this collection! Bravo Nicholas K!
was the inspiration for this collection james bond villains circa golden eye?
More like denim crotch curtains.
This is on trend with what I see going on in downtown.
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..
Did you see the episode of “Community” about the butt crack bandit?
Sadly no, this show is still on my to-watch list. I will get to it one day..
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.
As a NorCal native, this collection definitely had me thinking I know some folks who would wear this stuff.
I see that Catching Fire is a heavy influence–especially on some of the knitted pieces.
Well, “it’s a look” as they say
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.
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.
Getting an 80s-era Girbaud vibe.
My 80′s wardrobe… ah yes… Girbaud! I forgot about them…
The bare hips, chests, and torsos are giving me a chill.
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.
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.
Where do you wear this stuff?
Gahd, yes – speaking from the subzero Midwest, I cheer for the coats and the boots, and yell COVER YOUR BELLIES YOU SILLY GITS!
At this time of year in the subzero Midwest, exposed flesh freezes in less time than it takes to drink a cup of coffee.
If you need fur on your head, you don’t need side cut outs.
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.
I’m glad I’m not the only one that saw that!
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.
I was pleased to see the diversity in the model selection.
Yes, the boys are pretty, once you can suss them out underneath all that mess.
Getting Lisbeth Salander from the hair and a few of the women’s leather pieces. Love the black funnel-neck coat.
same – i don’t know if the designer is scandinavian but it’s all very “girl with the dragon tattoo” à la david fincher.
I think they’re American, but yeah it definitely has that look.
It’s kinda like Lisbeth Salander by way of Angela Chase, right?
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.
They were being held by the Dolce and Gabbana advert fishmongers!!
They could hold me FOREVER!
Thank you. Hate the dangling rope bracelets.
Communist Block Clubhouse Chic
Lord help me I like this. It’s very urban and at times a bit cray cray, but I like it.
Miley will, and she will let you down so hard.
Ugh! Anybody but her. I’d rather Roonry Mara or better yet, let Lupita give it her special brand of elegance
This is all just crazy in a way I will never understand.
i can’t believe everyone doesn’t loooove this like i do?!
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)
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.
The baggy pants and dropped crotches just kill it for me.
Costuming for a movie set in a post-apocalyptic Russian prison?
I was thinking the movie was about hipster Germans who go on a trek through the Himalayas.
I like a lot of this, but not the pants that look like the models peed themselves.
Amen! Here I thought I was the only one who saw that. I’m not crazy after all.
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.
Katniss Everdeen realness.
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.
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…
Not sure if I like the clothes, but kudos for the models of color.
inspired by Road Warrior!
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.
The garment that is cinching in the shirt-tail apron is bizarre too. What is that? A cardigan just for the waist?
Not my thing. Not pretty enough LOL
I need that furry hood right now.
Lilithcat, sick of snow and cold.
Well. It’s not boring. I’ll give him that.
Shades of Rick Owens, Alexander Wang, Ann D.
Nice — kind of up my alley — but nothing new.
okay, I know what I am wearing to the zombie apocolypse
Very project runway finale collectionish
The 90s are back in a big way, aren’t they?
My daughter, Emo Girl, would rock these looks. She doesn’t belly baring under 80 degrees, though.
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.
A little too post-apocalyptic for my taste, but very edgy and urban. My favorite color – black.
I like these, but of course I would just look like a slob. Yay, 90s!!
Weird castaway quality to these. Too bad Tilda Swinton already nabbed Gilligan’s shoes.
Why, yes, this is perfect for Minnesota winters. *snort*
This sort of reminds me of Michelle’s PR collection, no?
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.
My head is freezing, but my abs need some air.
This seems too much weird-for-weirdness’-sake to me. Trying too hard.
This year’s theme: Sochi Hobo Chic
These pieces are fabulous. We shall ignore the clodhoppers, however.
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.
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.
Love, love, love this! No denim jumpsuits for men, though, please.
