Typically most designers look 12 months ahead when presenting their collections during New York Fashion Week. As social media has made these collections more accessible for public viewing that time frame has gotten even shorter. That’s why all eyes where on Nick Graham when he presented his collection A/W 2017 entitled Life on Mars: Fall-Winter 2035.
Graham is known for his over the top presentations. In the past he’s celebrated the National Parks of the United States where models looked like shrubbery and trees fresh out of the woods. His S/S 2017 celebrated the Men of Havana where models were dressed ready to party at their favorite Cuban nightclub complete with dancing girls in tow. So naturally it was easy to see the intergalactic influence of the latest collection.
Shiny suits many adorned with scientific and outer space motifs where the dominant theme of the collection. The silver tones harkened back to spacesuits worn by astronauts such as Buzz Aldrin who actually rocked the runway in a silver metallic bomber jacket. The collection was narrated by favorite muse and bow-tie collaborator, Bill Nye, the science guy who gave a brief talk about the terrain of Mars before the models hit the stage. Nye sported his signature bow tie along with a metallic Saturn printed blazer.
