British fashion house Studio Nicholson has announced a joint partnership with ZARA to create a special menswear capsule that brings the studio’s values and expertise to a broader audience for the first time. Studio Nicholson was founded by Nick Wakeman in 2010 with the mission of creating adaptable, elegant, and functional pieces that form the basis of the ultimate modular wardrobe. Taking inspiration from a variety of influences including Japanese architecture, grunge, ’90s sub-cultures, and landscapes, the brand takes a reductionist approach, delivering powerful yet minimalist silhouettes for effortless urban layering.
“I approach every new collection with the same rigor as an architect designs a building – and begin by making sure the foundations are firmly in place. This attention to detail has meant that Studio Nicholson isn’t something that everyone can afford,” says Nick Wakeman, Founder and Creative Director of Studio Nicholson. “The collaboration with Zara means the modular wardrobe is exposed to an exciting new demographic of consumers; people who may not have had the chance (yet) to experience the brand. It gives us a channel to spread the aesthetic to regions and communities who might not have seen or heard of us before. Throughout their growth, Zara has retained extremely high editorial values and this makes them the ideal partner for a Studio Nicholson collaboration.”
The capsule consists of a range of heavy outwear including turtleneck down jackets and balmacaan coats as well as V-neck knitted vests, straight-cut shirts, and half-zip pullovers. Bottoms arrive mostly in relaxed, wide-leg fits including black cargo pants with oversized side pockets. Rounding out the assortment are accessories such as shoes, glasses, small leather goods, and blankets.
