Nicholas K Kicks Off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week For The Second Season At Lincoln Center



Nicholas K will kick-off Mercedes-Benz Fashion on Thursday, February 10, 9:00 am, following last season when Nicholas K was the first show EVER at Lincoln Center.


Hailing from Arizona, Nicholas and Christopher grew up spending a lot of time in the outdoors and love to go fishing and camping. After living in New York City for several years, the brother & sister duo decided to finally look for a refuge in Upstate NY where they could bring their dog (the popular Boxer, Jake, who always makes the runway exit with them after their shows) and participate in the outdoor sports they love. This search for the perfect cabin, surrounded by protected land with reservoirs, trails for hiking, forests for hunting and streams for fishing, became an inspiration for this upcoming Fall collection.

As Nicholas explains, “For our Fall collection, I was inspired by the woods and rustic living; the survival instinct and going back to primitive ways. The fall colors of the forest are reflected in the palette and overall aesthetic and I used a lot of texture and incorporated Navajo inspired prints. Think log homes, gypsies, stone fireplaces, owls, camping and migration.” Movies such as The Wilderness Family, A River Runs Through It, Legends of the Fall and Into the Wild also served as inspiration.
The collection features fabrics such as; rich corduroys, hunter green silk velvets and butter-soft lambskin and warm Mongolian furs. Key styles include chunky hand-knit cable sweaters with hand knotted leather buttons, tiered ruffle skirts that can be worn as dresses and many pieces are made with multifunctional details. Colors include rust orange, hunter green, evergreen, moss, birch, snow, harvest, bark and mud brown.


Since launching their women’s line in Fall of 2003, with men’s following in 2006, Nicholas Kunz and her brother and business partner, Christopher Kunz, have continued to deliver a downtown city edge to their customer base. Known for their trademark traditional quality and design with modern twists, the brand strives to deliver unique products, which will remain timeless wardrobe staples. In 2009, Nicholas and Christopher were inducted as members of the CFDA, marking a pivotal moment for the brand. The Nicholas K collection is now sold in over 120 stores worldwide and they also recently launched an E-Shop on their website at www.nicholask.com.



Check back on Thursday to see a video of Nicholas K‘s runway show!

Mara Hoffman’s South Africa and Zimbabwe inspired Swim 2011 Collection


For her new Swim range for Spring 2011, Mara Hoffman was originally inspired by the Ndebele tribe from South Africa and Zimbabwe. The colorful, geometric paintings on the homes of the tribes influenced a new original print by Hoffman and served as a central point for the look and feel of this collection. The “Etching” print has an African mud-cloth feeling and and the colorful “Web” print has a Batik effect. 


Silhouettes are  more feminine and flirty than in previous seasons, with a bit of a retro vibe.  New shapes include a ruffle bustier bikini, a triangle top and boy-short bottom and side-tie string bikini with bead detail, while continuing popular signature shapes such as the V-wire bustier bikini, ring one-piece and the embroidered bustier bikini. All styles will also be available in solid White, Blue and Black. There are also 2 cover-up styles. including knot sleeve tunic (in Etching prints) and maxi tank dress (in Aztec prints). 


The Mara Hoffman Swim collection is available at top specialty retailers and department stores worldwide, including Shopbop.com, Intermix, Bloomingdale’s, Saks, Harvey Nichols and many more and also recently launched on Net-A-Porter, both in the US and the UK.
