Nicholas K Spring 2011: The Art Of Wearable Clothes (PHOTOS, POLL)

Happy freezing f**king cold Fashion Week! (When did the temperatures drop to the 50s??) This morning I dragged my tired and under-attired self to Lincoln Center for Fashion Week's very first fashion show at 9 AM on 9/9, an honor that went to design duo Nicholas K.

It was with considerable curiosity that I checked out the tents at Lincoln Center, where New York Fashion Week has moved from Bryant Park starting this season. There wasn't a whole lot of mayhem around the entrance or inside, but then again it was an unfashionably early hour. A few initial observations: there are a lot of bathrooms, the only coffee options are Starbucks Via and Frappuccino, the "tents" are spacious and wind around an open courtyard that was getting some serious sunlight for the Vitamin D-deprived, and the cell phone reception was amazing (thus enabling these tweets), unlike that at Bryant Park.

Now, I'll be honest: I wasn't really familiar with designers Christopher Kunz and Nicholas Kunz's work, but what I saw (from the DJ booth thanks to HuffPost vlogger Kelly Cutrone) looked comfortable and highly wearable--two things I appreciate in clothes. There was one jacket in particular that I'm sweating (see below). Check out some of the collection and tell me what you think.
