Richard Nicoll Spring 2011

Richard Nicoll’s Spring 2011 presentation evoked minimal glamour.

This beautiful collection had a certain androgynous feel to it from the models slick back hair to the architectural lines which had a mix of 40s/70s silhouettes.

On a colour palette of black, white, peach and nude we saw boyish jackets, sheer tees with peplums, fitted PVC dresses, leather pants, leather shorts, key hole dresses, pleated tops with billowing capes and dresses layered over sheer pants.

Nearly all the looks had fluid movements as the models stormed the runway.

I was impressed with their ability to create such a dramatic movement until it became apparent that this was created by a wind machine.

Doh…silly me.

This was one of Nicoll’s strongest collection. Its exciting to see him continue to grow as a designer.

Key accessories included Christian Louboutin heels.

Jewels and belt buckles were created by Erickson Beamon using Swarovski elements and Culter and Gross designed the sunglasses also using Swarovski elements.

Front Row: Olivia Palermo

Favourites: Peach pleated mini dress with flowing cape and PVC fitted dress with ruffled collar

Who I see wearing this collection: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jessica Alba, Chloe Sevigny, Lily Allen, Nicola Roberts and Cheryl Cole

    It seems like a very strong collection, with wearable, beautiful pieces. I love how this fits so many trends, but doesn’t conform, thereareasian influences, with the lines and tones of the collection, and there are hintsto the 70’s with those to-die-for pleats (I love the pleated pink maxi skirt), and the shoes. I have got say I am also loving the new venue for LFW. And bravo to him for using a wind machine, anything that enhances a collection. I lov ethis collection mroe by the minute.

    Sober, clean, romantic, sheer yet layered, precise – I really liked this collection and the way it all hung together. I could also see Katie Holmes wearing some of this…..
