Nicholas K : F/W 2012

Photographed by Kristie Dash

First show of the day! Nicholas K! With the concept as apparent as the styling, the Nicholas K collection showed looks inspired by the southwest urban cowboy, hip, effortless, nonchalant, creating an ease with every layered combo. The colours seemed to have been borrowed from the Mojave, with dusty rose, ash blue, and camel transitioning into a plume of dark grey. The transition of the show seemed to have formed a colour story, chronicling the moments of twilight, to the moments of night. A number of richly coloured capes seemed to have been the moment of the show, with the girls, 90's inspired silhouettes of form-fitting maxis, with lovely back detail, and with the boys, a Navajo mixed with Cowboy idea, which included layers of slouchy garb, garnished with 10 gallon hats. Each look was as lovely as the last. The con of the show was the hair and makeup, where the female models garnered severe black wigs, with makeup simulating a tired woman. (NOTE: never never pale out the face, and do a rusty red smoky eye, you will look like death)
