Traveling the world opened Kenneth Nicholson to an array of silhouettes that can be applied to menswear; silhouettes which are often restricted to shirts, pants, and jackets. As a design assistant for the LA based brand MartinMartin, Kenneth began focusing his vision on menswear.
Kenneth Nicholson AW ’13 collection, “The City Walker”, which was inspired by the diversity often found in downtown Los Angeles, can be found at CHURCH Boutiquelocated in Hollywood, California. Nicholson also makes bespoke pieces for a private clientele.
In his work, he strives to add to the narrative of menswear by working with techniques that are often reserved for womenswear. He focuses on applying modern techniques, making them masculine, applying them to his menswear line, expanding the way that menswear is viewed by society.
Nicholson’s SS ’14 collection, entitled “Clean Line”, is inspired by clean lines and minimalism.
Nicholson is presenting his SS ’14 collection at the LA Men’s Collections this October 15, 2013 at Men's Fashion Week LA at the California Market Center. His exhibition begins at 1:30pm.
