The American brand of Nicholas K presented the Arctic collection in what tried to prepare for next winter of sports and stylish "adventurers" on the New York week of a fashion. By recognition of designers of a brand, as a semantic source of inspiration memoirs of researchers of the Arctic at a turn of 19-20 centuries served, and is concrete, Peter Freykhen’s (Peter Freuchen) epistolary heritage, the Danish writer, the cartographer and the anthropologist, the participant of numerous expeditions on northern territories of Iceland, Canada, Alaska, Norway, Greenland. He, by the way, was the first "Westerner" marrying an inuitka.
In the "Arctic" Nicolas and Christopher tried to connect cold scale of northern landscapes and warm colors of municipal clothes иниутов. On a podium Lincoln Tsentra (Lincoln Center) models of both floors represented integral sets on color where in already ordinary sand, creamy and cream, gray, antratsitovy and umbristy shades difficult moires of blue, the pripylenny violet, saturated olive picturesquely flickered. The big pledovy cage and batikovy stains are organically entered in monophonic difficult invoices of multilayered vestments of polar wanderers.
Man’s and female collections supplement each other, without losing own gender features. The men dressed by Nicholas and Christopher Kunz, not for fun, and are seriously ready to polar tests: even not multilayered, kapustoobrazny character of their clothes speaks about a serious approach of designers to a subject. Leather jackets on fur, fur hoods, hoodies, waistcoats, flannel shirts and "glazes" from knitted pelerines do not look at all a heap in the top part of a body. Warm socks and good-quality boots from Danner finish an image if not the member of the Arctic expedition of new time, precisely modern frequenter of a ski resort.
"Equipment" of ladies only partly suits the companion of the brave polar explorer. Not including comfortable warm cardigans, fur coats, waistcoats, jumpers the big are viscous, hoods with pelerines, unique spacious capes and jackets-parok with slanting cuts of shelves, in a collection there are a lot of easy dresses with difficult draperies, tops on one shoulder strap from silk, plush, chiffon. And footwear of lovely ladies not so Arctic, but very unique. The brand of Nicholas K developed specially for F/W – the 2013th sandals with windings, usual option эспадрильи – slippers made of cloth on a rope sole which remind an obuvka the fighter of the European armies (including Russian) First World War times. Points in massive frames, dark aggressive мейкап, geodes suspension brackets and leather sword belts as ornaments crown a little aggressive image of the northern amazon.
Masterfully using historical base ammunition of polar researchers and national clothes of Inuits, the brother and the sister of Kunz made surprisingly harmonious collection for free spirit of the esthete – the intellectual who is conducting a sports way of life and organically feeling both in vanity of the big small town, and in great silence of a snow-covered place of the Arctic.
