Kaye combines fitted and looser pieces portraying a futuristic tone, along with a hint of retro. He isn’t afraid to play with vibrant colors, nor is he afraid to wear a heel. Many of the shoes he wears in his looks seamlessly tie into the characters’ outfits. Some of the outfits, such as his stylish riff on The Hulk and Spiderman, could be seen as street style wear since this season is all about puffer jackets and loose straight-cut jeans.

In his hero Marvel looks, Kaye uses many jackets and coats to layer over the outfits, specifically his interpretation of the character Nick Fury. In his Captain America take, we see a nod at the past. The flared pants partnered with the cropped jacket and graphic tee, along with pointed black boots, oozes a ‘70s vibe.
