This Parsons-Grad-Designed Spring Collection Is Beyond Cool Kule

When designer Nikki Kule graduated from Parsons, she spent some time in Italy, and we're really glad that she did. The trip allowed her to cultivate a super-sleek aesthetic that blends bold, Italian fashion with American prep. The result is Kule, her line of top-notch, wish-list-worthy wears.
This season's collection is geared toward the active girl, which means easy, streamlined sweaters that look every bit as plush as they feel and casual cover-ups, like a leather-embellished trench and a chevron-striped nylon jacket. There's a classic sailor vibe that runs throughout the collection, but that army-green khaki suit makes us feel like a safari outing isn't too far off.
The accessories have got us just as excited, from the two-tone chunky bangles that cap off an airy, chambray blouse to the neutral satchels that are as versatile as we could hope for. Plus, let's just lay it out there — socks with sandals never looked so cool. Click over to the site, where you can shop all the pieces that range from $125 to $595, and then head outside, because in these looks, you're so going places.
