The Line-Up: Nick Fouquet

Growing up in New York and France, Nick was part of a very multi-cultural upbringing, with travel being an important part of his youth. As the only boy in a family of 6 siblings, a father who is French and a mother who is American, Nick has lived in and experienced many different environments. From attending an all-boys boarding school to escaping to Patagonia on his mother’s credit card, each of his adventures have made for an enviably unique life story. Fast-forward to today, you’ll find Nick in Venice, CA surfing (in true Tidalist form) and constantly creating new designs and concepts for his millinery. From continuing to grow his own namesake brand to successful collaborations with everyone form Borsalino to George Esquivel and Eric Buterbaugh, we absolutely cannot wait to witness more success that is headed his way.

With an enviable passport and an even more enviable sense of style, we asked Nick some of the most pressing questions to understand just how cool he really is…
