Nice Collective’s Joe Haller and Ian Hanulla have spearheaded a slew of new trends in menswear, and their style blends influences as varied as Victorian/Dickensian era dandies, steam punks, circus sideshows, and the modern military.
Their first big New York show, last week, was titled “Time Machine” and took place at a former synegogue on the Lower East Side. Mens.style.com said the show had an “unmistakable 12 Monkeys vibe.” (See the link for the full slideshow of looks.)
EastVillageBoys describes it thusly:
On the runway a copper-colored wood, metal, and leather beast of a turn-of-the-century carriage – the time machine itself – was in the sights of a gigantic hemisphere of Orwellian electronic eyes that stared down from on high. Models stomped past in duct-taped combat boots while ripped up machine-music boomed throughout the eerie space. The place just didn’t feel safe and we loved it.
They quickly proceeded backstage and brought us the following images, from photographer Ves Pitts. The final couple images are of the Nice Collective designers themselves, Joe and Ian.
