It’s the best way to kick off the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and this season did not disappoint with the brother–sister design duo of Nicholas K. delivering their signature style of layered, ready-to-wear to an appreciative, fashion-ready crowd. Backstage, models prepared for the first show of the official calendar with Haven for Essie nails and natural yet striking make-up from Janell Geason for Aveda.
There was not a spare seat in the house as Bryan Boy and Elle US’s Joe Zee entered to join the loyal crowd of Nicholas K converts ready to kick off another season of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
Aside from the khaki and black colour palette—signature shades for Nicholas K—this season the designers showcased stunning burnt orange and lavender to add splashes of spring to the collection. Tailored, wide-leg pants and floating outerwear creating the distinctive Nicholas K look. Styled by Wendy Schecter, it built upon the best of last spring–summer while adding a new dimension to the brand’s æsthetic.
Unbeknown to many, the brand styled its womenswear with Nicholas K jewellery and footwear, a relatively new addition to the collection, something we are very excited about. When you’re a fan of this brand it’s nice to know you can go head-to-toe.—Angela Gilltrap, Associate Editor
