Today, fashion designer Nick Graham presented his latest collection, entitled Atlantis, at New York Fashion Week: Men’s. Inspired by the mythical continent and the ocean, the collection was further influenced from fashion in the 60’s.
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.
“Even before the ‘Life On Mars’ show, I was thinking of exploring the ocean, and not only our impact on it, but it’s impact and influence on us,” said Graham. “The Atlantis show is really a metaphor within a fashion show. In many ways we are Atlantis and need to be cognizant of where we live and how we live here.”
The collection featured vibrant and subtle blues of the oceans, as well as a psychedelic array of colors inspired by the coral reefs. Continuing his trademark sense of bringing color and pattern to men’s clothing, the show was an explosion of bright colors in tailored clothing, shirting, and sportswear.
