Nicholas Kunz's choice of fabrics, color, and cut has shaped her label, Nicholas K into the perfect example of rugged masculinity. However, this season sees change. The Nicholas K man still exudes a rugged sensibility, but has been softened and given gentle traits. Found among earth-toned outerwear with protruding oversized collars are pieces, more feminine in nature. Scarves with added sheen and cardigans that fit closer to the male form suggest a quiet transformation and acceptance of changing times, while cropped leggings/sweats act as a commitment to move forward. Progressively, leggings and slim-fitted sweats have been taking the runways and showrooms. Perhaps, they will eventually debut in the mainstream clothing market.
