N-p-ElliottNew York-based fashion label N-p-Elliott debuted its autumn/winter 2018 collection at a runway show during NYFW: Men’s at Cadillac House.

For this season, creative director Nicholas Elliott reimagined his childhood in Scotland in the late 80s and 90s, taking inspiration from the football clubs, shell suits, country pursuits, and pagan Celtic traditions that characterized his youth.

N-p-ElliottThe collection’s title, “Summer’s End”, is derived from the Gaelic festival of Samhain, or the end of harvest season. Samhain is traditionally celebrated on October 31, halfway between the summer solstice and the autumnal equinox.

Collaborations shown on the runway included custom boots by Dr. Marten’s, sunglasses sponsored by Illesteva, and makeup by Make-up Pro.
