[NEW YORK, NY.] A fashion designer without a vision will blindly lead their brand to perish in bankruptcy. Which some have come nearly close to achieving, however, Kenneth Nicholson has given menswear a new purpose to aim towards. Perhaps because of his unusual life experiences that have steered him to his life calling in men’s fashion. For the summer spring 2019 collection, Nicholson translated his written story “Lover From The Bath” into a three-chapter runway show.
To transform his story, the collection started with white looks that were evocative of the Renaissance era. White tights, ruffles and romantic lace embellished an array of kurta-like upper garments and pants. In the second phase of the showcase, a few 16th century trends lingered whilst colour was introduced. Striped patterns and bell-bottoms taken from the 60’s were emphasized in majority of the looks. Black indicated the final segment of the presentation, representing death. Nothing in this show reflected the norm in menswear which indicates that Nicholson is a vivid visionary that has set his namesake label apart from the rest.
