Nicholas K Divine Wraps, Coats, Parkas-90's Ode

BUILT FROM SCRATCH”FALL / WINTER 2017


Downtown, NYC

Swirling snow and gusts of wind screeching up the streets-perfect weather to really appreciate Nicholas K's RTW NYFW A/W 2017...with 49 looks that made us feel cozy-chic...even with the acknowledgement of turbulent times.

From the run of show...

THE 90S WAS A DECADE PROMISING COMMUNAL DIVERSITY AND UNITY. BEGINNING WITH THE RELEASE OF NELSON MANDELA AND CONTINUING COMMUNITY ADVOCACY OF THE GUARDIAN ANGELS, THIS DECADE WAS ALSO THE GOLDEN AGE OF HIPHOP. ARTISTS WIDE RANGING TOPICS, POLITICAL MILITANCY UNDERTONES AND EXPERIMENTALISM BECAME CELEBRATION OF DIVERSE WIDESPREAD CULTURAL ACCEPTANCE. THE LATE 90S DIGITAL WORLD BROUGHT THE PROMISE OF A GLOB- AL HUMANITARIAN COMMUNITY. RECENT EVENTS SEEM TO UNRAVEL THIS PROGRESS AND IT’S NOW RELEVANT TO REVISIT THE PROMISE OF THE 90S.
