Nicholas and Christopher Kunz’s fall collection was very black and white. The first half of the show featured paper-white monochromatic tops and cozy coats layered over sweatpants for women and men, while the second half focused on to head-to-toe black ensembles.
The duo drew inspiration from intrepid Arctic explorations during the late 19th century, so we were treated to an impeccably styled masterful lesson in layering. The models came out wearing clear utilitarian goggles on their foreheads like headbands, while we’re all for the avant garde, we thought they were a bit much.
Among the standouts for women was a plaid jacket with a fur collar as well as diaphanous dresses with sweetheart necklines that came either one-shouldered or with full sleeves. For men, the feel was technical meets utilitarian centering on classics with optical depth such as nylon parkas and scoop-neck knits.
