NYFW | Earth and Wind - Nicholas K SS14 Review

Loose and unstructured. Nicholas K's collection at New York Fashion Week drew inspiration from the original Americans. The runway looks were very interesting as they all centred only on one colour at a time. The palette used was simple and natural which adds to the loosely fitting garments in the breeze. The looks were very urban and casual. Some of Nicholas K's best selling pieces are in outerwear and in this season, there were some great parkas and jackets - but that's not all for this season.

Because the palette was so simple, the main focus of the garments were in its physical design qualities. How it fit, how it moved with the models. The white looks were a bit plain and I found myself more interested in the tan and black outfits. Parkas and jackets were great with the unstructured theme. It was also nice to see a tan leather jacket which looked really really good. Aside from outerwear though, I liked the checked shirts and the grey sweater - it's fitted and loose at the same time, so much texture!

The natural tones complemented the show and the accessories. The loosefitting garments were stronger in womenswear when the label played with different lengths of the pieces in the look. The parka and short shorts worked together well and the ladies tan leather jacket also looked amazing. The dresses were more elaborate with glittery accents and the gold shoes fit the runway looks really well.
