London-based Nik Thakkar calls himself a creative polymath: At 28, Thakkar runs a successful lifestyle blog, Karl is My Unkle, and has collaborated on marketing campaigns for the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier (remember those Coca Cola bottles?) and Louis Vuitton.
Thakkar is also one half of luxury menswear label Ada + Nik, which he created in partnership with designer Ada Zanditon. The pair recently had their first Ada + Nik presentation at London Collections Men's Spring 2016. Influenced by film noir imagery and androgynous designs (with a hint of goth), Ada + Nik is becoming a favorite in London's up-and-coming designer scene. Check out their latest collection here.
