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.
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.
