WHAT WE THOUGHT: Space-age cowboy/cowgirl is all we can say. City slicker whom just got lost in Texas and embraced their surroundings. With Nancy Sinatra’s “Bang! Bang!” playing, the model’s took to the catwalk like urban wranglers. Over-sized hats, feux fur leather bombers, finger less long gloves, and high collars made this collection a big win. The model’s makeup was heavy with dark brown lips and ghostly smoky eyes. The clothes were dark and sleek with rich fabrics, fringe and texture. Winter whites, grays, and black were the star colors of this collection. Everyone has owned a pair of tortoise shell sunglasses, but have you ever owned an actual tortoise shell? Well, apart of a few Nicholas K’s pieces included an actual full tortoise shell necklace which was a little disturbing. The highlighted pieces were a fringed knitted tank, the heavy wool gaucho style parkas and an amazing beaded green, orange and cream top. —-Tania Jen
