A Nick Graham show during New York Fashion Week, is one of those shows that no one wants to miss. This year’s runway/presentation was no exception. Today, the Graham presented his latest collection, entitled Atlantis, which was inspired by the mythical continent and the ocean.
Since the first New York Fashion Week Mens, Nick Graham has been creating his spectacular shows delighting audiences with his fun approach to menswear and showcasing his fantastic inspirations. First, he started by paying tribute to the U.S. National Parks in celebration of their centennial anniversary, then partying at the famed Tropicana for his Men of Havana collection and then heading to outer space as he explored Life in Mars.
For Spring/Summer 2018, the fashion designer set his vision his vision on the ocean. The collection featured vibrant and subtle blues of the oceans, as well as a psychedelic array of colors inspired by the coral reefs. Graham’s collection was much more than the nautical fare that one would expect for an ocean themed show. Bright colors including oranges, greens, lavenders and reds made the collection much more cheery. And of course the addition of the seafaring creatures adorned on the models created Nick Graham’s signature touch of whimsy.
The start of the show featured a 10 minute short film directed by Graham based upon the ocean with music from 16 year old composer, Truman Gaynes, adding to the overall experience.
