|The decision to embark upon the journey had been made and the first port of call was to choose a name worthy of its founder’s dreams and highest expectations.
The end of an era always brings a new beginning and with this the first name was chosen; Nikolaj, from Nikolaj the second, the Last Tsar of Russia. A combination of royal influence and regal fashion sense would lend itself greatly to NDE’s design, look and feel. But what could accompany this chosen title? Above was painted a glorious picture of angels, and below this heavenly creation they read the word d’Étoiles. It was at this moment that the two came together, and Nikolaj d’Étoiles was born. A high fashion house for men, where classical elegance interacts with modern innovation.
Established in 2003, NDE reinvent the contemporary without losing essential essence. This original approach to garment creation allows the wearer to explore new realms of fashion without entering an abstract, uncomfortable or unfamiliar place. The sensual, mystical and slightly eccentric touch of Nikolaj d’Étoiles understated extravagance, creates a world of inspired and imaginative designs. Luxurious materials form a landscape of fine precision, in a delightful mix of sharp lines, silhouettes and contrasts that capture the senses and lift the spirit.
