In 2001, Nikki Kule launched Kule, the first American collection of luxury children’s clothing. The effort earned her an invitation into the CFDA, making her the second-ever children’s designer to gain membership in the esteemed organization. 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. A seasoned collector and admirer of striped tops, Nikki focused on this passion, perfecting a range of silhouettes, each nuanced and inspired by fashion icons like Alexa Chung, Jane Birkin, Brigette Bardot, Picasso, and Sofia Coppola. The result is a specialized line that presents the essence of her design philosophy with a dash of Francophile whimsy.
