This is the second season Nicholas Coutts has left us in Awe and is officially an FGUK Ones to Watch. This young designer from Cape Town, South Africa has recently released his Autumn/Winter 2017 offering in the form of a lookbook shot by Kyle Weeks.
The Nicholas Coutts brand specialises in garments that are textured and uses fabrication to create contrast to visually communicate aesthetically pleasing and wearable garments. Influenced by the Arts & Crafts Movement, the garments are ‘one of a kind’ and therefore unique. These unique highly textured woven and knitted items are in direct contrast to his sophisticated and comfortable designs which exude functionality and timeless elegance.
