Ladies Who Lunch: Nicholas K Fall 2012!

Marrying traditional quality and design with a modern downtown edge, Nicholas K’s distinctive layered look, has become a well known line of women’s and men’s clothing.   Designed by the brother/sister team of Nicholas and Christopher Kunz, Nicholas K is one of the shows that fashionistas flock to during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

For Fall 2012, the team drew on their Southwestern roots to present a collection that evokes the old west in a completely chic and modern way, accentuated on the runway by Stetson wearing models.  Inspired by the 1920‘s Taos modernist artists like Georgia O’Keefe and Ansel Adams, the collection was full of Western references.  Fringe was a key element in the collection, appearing on sheet knit dresses, geometric leather jackets and in metallic on glitzy tops and dresses.

The team loves outerwear and that was evident in a gorgeous showing that included a fresh take on parka jackets and long and short coats inspired by duster jackets.  In keeping with their theme, the Nicholas K Fall 2012 colors relied on earth tones drawn from the Taos desert including sand, greys, reddish earth tones and sage greens.

Nicholas K Fall 2012 is chock full of wearable pieces that have a modern edge to them, making them classic and contemporary at the same time.  And as usual, the Nicholas K layered look feels especially right with this theme and for this coming season.
