For designer Nicholas Kunz, the Nicholas K Fall/Winter 2020 Collection’s primary focus was to have close connections with the consumer. “This season is a tribute to universality and diversity. The success of our movement toward direct to consumer continues to drive us toward creating products which have universal appeal but are inherently unique” said the designer.
Since focusing on direct to consumer their business has grown two-fold as they receive greater insight into small nuances of desire. “Working with customers in-store and monitoring online behavior have become valuable tools to guide design.”
“For Fall/Winter 20, it is the diversity and universality of our customer that provides the inspiration. Our shoppers come in from all over the world and we relish the age range, backgrounds and lifestyles of people that connect with our sensibility. Our customers are well-traveled, architects, artists, involved with Health and Wellness and have a global perspective on life and community. We aim to create timeless collections that transcend barriers while promoting sustainability,” explains the designer.
Pops of crimson stand out in a monotone color palette of black, gray, olive, earth, and beige. Exaggerated sleeves and long cozy boucle knits that can be worn in multiple ways are layered together with brushed heritage plaids.
A long leather jacket is introduced in dip-dyed Lamb Leather that can be converted into a cropped silhouette. Sustainable fabrics include undyed pure color Alpaca Knitwear, Burla Cellulose Viscose, Organic Cottons, Vegetable Dyed Leathers, and Artisan Hand Dyes.
Something interesting and fantastic about this designer is that their priority is preservation, which is key in the current fashion world. They are dedicated to create products that promote sustainability. Not as an option, but as a foundation for everything they do. Ever mindful of making products built to last, they operate with uncompromising standards to ensure that their products are made in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. Emphasizing durability and longevity of both design and construction. They source materials that promote the use of natural and renewable materials over synthetic alternatives.
