The Nicholas Coutts brand is a fashion and textile label from Cape Town, South Africa. Concentrating on tailoring, craftsmanship and a tangible outlook on fashion, the brand creates garments that are sophisticated yet comfortable, exuding functionality and a timeless elegance as well as incorporating a human touch into its aesthetic.
The continual thread of integrating hand woven fabrics and the combination of unusual textures makes this brand unique, playing into its laid back luxury with a high focus on fabrication and sustainability. The influence of nature and the Afropolitan aesthetic is evident in Nicholas’ work as a designer. Weaving forms an intrinsic part of the brand’s design philosophy, creating highly textured one-of-a-kind textiles that form a synergy between traditional and modern craft.
Nicholas designs for both men and women, celebrating contrast and interesting colour palettes.
