The It Factor for Denver: The grunge-military-utilitarian look has been around now for several seasons, so ladies will need a reason to return to the well for spring. Nicholas Kunz’s freshest interpretations are the looks that have a little romantic twist, like a white, off-shoulder maxi dress cinched with a military-style grommet belt.

The Gist of It: Kunz’s spring show tempered the military and utilitarian themes with feminine draping. Her layered looks include cargo pants worn scrunched up just under the knee; breezy, draped dresses; drawstring shorts; frayed-hem plaid shirts; and several great outerwear pieces, including a utility jacket with oversized collar. Combat boots are de rigueur and paired with every look, while the entire collection is rendered in a palette of drab green, khaki, putty, gray, and white.
