From a childhood spent in Seventh Avenue’s garment district to her stints as a celebrated children’s clothier and Brooks Brothers designer, Nikki Kule has always been driven by a love of iconic fashion brands and the modern preppy aesthetic. In 2009, Brooks Brothers hired Nikki as a guest designer to re-launch its boys’ collection and, for the first time in the company’s almost 200 year history, introduce a girls’ collection. It was in 2011 that Nikki finally decided to return to her roots and introduce a women’s collection, presenting ready-to-wearing defined by the “Preppy Luxe” aesthetic that she has embraced and developed throughout her life.
