Nick Graham: Men In Their Natural Habitat

For this year’s men’s fashion week, Nick Graham presented “Men in Their Natural Habitat.” In celebration of the National Parks’ 100th anniversary, twenty men have been showcased to represent six special parks. Yosemite, Sequoia, Mount Rainier, Zion, Olympic, and Bryce Canyon were the natural reference points for the collection, with models scattered between live trees. There was also a disclosure for the use of live trees by NYC Tree Lady, which read, “For every tree used in the show, we will replant five trees.”

Suits were complemented by feather pocket squares, scarves, bow ties, ascots, and cummerbunds, and objects found in nature—such as birds on branches, pinecones, blades of grass—were delicately stuffed into the tops and bottoms of suit openings, hats, and necklines.

A flyer was also handed out to all attendees, which included a satirical message broken down to explain men. Moving in packs, the alpha male, loosing focus, and courtship processes were explained, hinting at men in their seemingly innate natural habitats. Our favorite? “No men were harmed in the making of this event. Immediately following the show, they will be release again into the wild (otherwise known as the Lower East Side).”
