Nicholas K Fall 2012 Cowboys Up

Nicholas K’s collection came out with guns a blazin’ today for the Fall 2012 runway show. Bad ass hats, ponchos, holsters in dusty grays and browns, all made their way down the runway at The Studio at Lincoln Center today.


The styling was rough and tumble, the make up rusty and dark. My boyfriend would be proud of me for having the following thought: The collection summoned the world of The Dark Tower series by Stephen King. Cowboy mixed with a sort of post- apocalyptic thing. Yes, I know how strange that sounded and yes, I know only nerds will get my reference.

However literal some of the elements in this collection were, there were also details that I thought were clever and imaginative. Take for instance the turtle shell necklace that some of the models donned. The pieces were not part of the Nicholas K line but rather were designed by Jewelry by Matt out of NYC and he is sure to get some much deserved attention for these gooooorgeous pieces! Not something that I would personally wear but in this collection, it really made an impression because the shells themselves were an interesting enough piece to draw the eye and compliment the designer’s vision.

Bad ass hats were another big thrill for me here. Both the male and female models wore androgynous black and tan cowboy hats over poncho hoods and hair alike. Tell me when you look at these photos, that these hats are boring. With these looks? Nope, they are pretty fu$%in’ bad ass.
