It’s TJ with CULTED.
From his nan’s coach to the navy, inspiration comes from just about anywhere for emerging menswear designer Kenneth Nicholson.
Since starting his brand back in 2016, Kenneth has launched 6 full collections, shown twice at NYFW and was even nominated for Emerging Designer of the Year at this year’s CFDA Awards.
The Houston native started making clothes just age 14 before enlisting in the US Navy, and he’s since gone on to pave a way for himself in the world of menswear with his signature long, loose silhouette. Kenneth’s designs throw away the rigid rules that often come with menswear, as he merges womenswear shapes and motifs into his looks.
“Worldly details, art history and the precision of military culture” are just some of the reference points for his attention grabbing collections, and having only started his brand 4 years ago, the future’s looking bright for the LA-based menswear designer.
With that being said, we expect that you’ll be hearing the name Kenneth Nicholson a lot more in the coming years. What do you guys think of Kenneth’s designs? Let us know below.
