Nicholas K Spring 2016: Terminal Velocity

Nicholas K S16 (1)With a title “Terminal Velocity”, it was not surprising that the Nicholas K Spring 2015 collection featured flight suits and tent dresses inspired by parachutes. In fact, the collection was inspired by free fall and skydiving. Thus, you see references to the base jumper, parachutes and zeppelin.

This high octane collection paid homage to the paratroopers as seen in the oversized tent dresses, zeppelin skirts and flight suits. Parachute cords and leather strap harnesses are the accessories de rigueur.

Hemlines are asymmetrical and the waist is cinched with drawcords. Dip dyed silk satins and distress vintage leather gave the collection a retro-modern feel.
