I was not too fond of this collection, I guess I always expect this designer to surprise me like he always does. I know that embroidered garments and bell bottoms is in style now now but I guess I expected more for 17/18.I find his muse Rihanna to be an inspiration for this ready to wear collection.

Were talking about the designer who created costumes and looks for world tours for Michael Jackson, Lady gaga, Britney Spears, Rupaul, Mick Jagger, The scissors sisters, And of course Rihanna and her River island retail brand.
Denim, metallic dark blue, red passion, is the colors mainly used in this collection. A great comeback for denim lovers. Bell bottom with long button down dresses, belts as a detail to accentuate the waist line. I understood the concept of the rose but as far as the direction he took had me a little lost. The messy hair bun, grease button down neckline and plaid seem to added to the very informal casual collection that can please lots of women who are just looking for something basic and not too over the edge.
A unique way to find a feminine goddess touch in a very masculine world. This collection is what hip hop, old school, new york loving and urban wear lovers are looking for. You can also easily find your place in this collection, whether you are a hip hop fan or not. To me this designer is trying to make going back in time cool and fun. The black, red, rusty, and gold tones and details played well as it stood out the most with the idea of sending off a street vibe. The models had a very clean face, very little makeup which is great, so it focuses on the accessories and the texture of the outfits . Very little use of print but when it was done it was in such a way that it gave you the impression of a golden snake or an urban massai. Velvet also played a big role in this collection so it looks like we will repeat the velvet theme next year. this collection was not something you never saw but the idea of using these colors, layers, knots and textures in the right places made it stand out.so I would like to say its a thumbs up for Nicholas k. fall collection. I can see the next generation of hip hop, urban artist who choose t o identify with the past wear this as much as I can see a mature classy woman wear it has no specific audience.
