Each week, we ask writers, artists, and people of interest to share what’s inspiring them lately. This week we feature picks from Nik Thakkar, creative director for the luxury menswear brand Ada + Nik (which shows at London Collections: Men each season). He is also currently the face of Jean Paul Gaultier’s AW13/14 digital campaign. Nik is listed as one of 25 on The New Fashion Power List 2012 and on Time Out London’s Culture 100. VICE magazine calls him “one of the premier creative minds in London,” while Style.com says he “pushes the boundaries of the industry.” Follow him on Twitter at @nikthakkar.
