Reykjavík Fashion Festival took place last week and the outcome was a success without a doubt. The creativity that comes out of Iceland impresses me every single time. Notice I say, "impress" instead of "surprise"....we all know that Reykjavík is a bastion of creativity and it should be no surprise. One of the few designers that was showing is Nikita Clothing. Ten years ago I found out about the new brand, Nikita via snowboarding...I fell in love and have since been one of my favorite designers and still is. ...which is rare to find ...think about a brand that you loved when you were just a teen....do you still like them now?
Nikita has such a pleasant design. They're so different and real in the creation of each piece...you can look at a piece of theirs, hold it in front of you and you'll immediately know for sure that you will feel not only comfortable, but relaxed yet way stylish...it'll blow others' minds.
Plus, it helps to know that I've worked with Runar, one of the designers for Nikita and he is such a down to earth guy, it's awesome. Nikita is awesome.
Some of the other designers included Mundi, Rain Dear, Rey, E-Label, Kalda, Andersen & Lauth, and Royal Extreme to name a few....
