One of our forum members recently bought the Nicholas K Jersey Nova Jacket in black and she looks fabulous in it. Nicholas K pieces, much like Rick Owens pieces, have a “post apocalyptic” and avant-garde handwriting. The assortment is predominantly black and charcoal with a splattering of cream and brown. Silhouettes are very drapey, layered and asymmetric. The designs are intricate, interesting, arty, somewhat rugged, and the trims distinctive. Fabrics are usually knitted to create a casual or smart casual vibe. If you’re after a crisp and soft look that’s tailored and conventionally flattering, Nicholas K is not your brand.

I haven’t seen these items in person but they’re appealing if the dramatic look fits your style persona. I enjoyed looking at these creative designs, an acquired taste, and perhaps you will too.

  • Nicholas K Women's Jersey Nova Jacket: This style of jacket works well on curvy ladies with defined waistlines. Works surprisingly well on petites. The intricate front detailing of the jacket is more visible and dramatic in grey than in black.
  • Nicholas K Women's Merlin Crop: A semi-fitted jacket with an attached wrap that can be draped in two ways: down the side of the body, or over the opposite shoulder.
  • Nicholas K Women's Serius Sweater: Draped sweater on steroids. Fun thumb holes. Nice shade of brown. Perfect over leather leggings.
  • Nicholas K Women's Zella Sweater: The front of this cropped sweater can be draped in a variety of ways. It can feel quite fussy so consider yourself warned. It's a fun piece layered over other draped items - as seen on the model.
  • Nicholas K Women's Conifer Sweater: A hooded sweater jacket with distinctive front strap closures.
  • Nicholas K Women's Belta Kota: A belted sweater coat with an oversized shawl collar that doubles as a hood. Unstructured. Good on Team Tall.
