Fashion Week: Nicholas K

Fashion Notes
Nicholas Kunz likes layers. This season, the designer is piling it on the urban cowboy. The Tuscon tradition was spiced up with a bit of Williamsburg style. Drapy cardigans were paired with long shearling coats and jackets. Sometimes it was hard to tell where one garment began and the other ended in this mostly graphite colored collection.

Key looks
Long shearling-esq coats mixed with faux fur, canvas, leather and knits. We especially loved the combination of over-the-knee boots with stockings peaking out.

Textiles
Leather, fur, canvas, knits, fringe and sequins mixed together in a variety of looks

Silhouettes
All of Nickolas K's looks were topped with a not-so-subtle over sized cowboy hat to drive home the fresh from the Southwest message. This look is supposed to seem effortless but we all know how hard it is to get all these layers right.  In contrast, the prairie dresses are a simple way to achieve the down on the range style.
