Unfortunately this show featured the first two model falls of fashion week, but trust me, after seeing the wonderful collection I almost forgot about the model spills. (note: I said "almost".)
The Nicholas K. fall/winter 2011 ready to wear collection was an interesting casual mix of grunge & luxurious boho (bohemian). I loved all the fur, the colorful plaid, the leather boots & jackets and the chunky, oversized knit sweaters. I could easily see myself wearing a few of the Nicholas K. pieces from her ready to wear collection.
Here are three of my favorite looks from the Nicholas K. RTW (ready to wear, for those fashion week newbies out there.) collection fall/winter 2011.
I am #INLOVE with this chunky oversized knit sweater, i adore the oatmeal color & i love how it looks with the gray pants and the brown distressed-leather boots. (oh, btw - thats the model who took the first spill and those boots were the culprit.)
I love this jacket, especially the unique shade of the fur, and how well it matches with the aviator sunglasses. If it were me, I would pair the jacket & the shades with jet black denim & knee high black boots.
black leather + black fur = YES PLEASE.
Okay, enough with the fashion - on to beauty. #NAILS
For Nicholas K's downtown chic RTW collection, Pattie Yankee created two custom Dashing Diva colors, a deep hunter green and a brown with gold flecks. In addition, Dashing Diva's "Remember My Name" and "Limo Service" were also worn by the models.
I'm a huge fan of dark nail polish & after this show I am going to need to pick myself up a bottle of Dashing Diva's "Remember My Name" - i love it. All in all, the Nicholas K. show was a success (if you don't count the falling models..) and I really enjoyed her RTW fall/winter collection.
