Richard Nicoll autumn/winter 2011 collection at LFW

Minimalistic but modern was the look of the evening as Richard Nicoll sent his models down the catwalk at Old Billingsgate Market yesterday.

The usually colourful designer toned down his signature block colour hues – a move he started to make via his spring/summer collection in September last year – for more earthy tones instead in mustard, camel and white. However, there were flashes of vibrant tango orange; but the rest was a surge towards black with PVC and wet-leather looking pieces. Soft tailoring ensued with dresses that were cut short at the front with a long flowing tails, whilst jackets and tops appeared oversized, circa 1990.

The centre piece of the show though had to be his luxe bomber jackets and Parkas with raised collars, which fanned from shoulder to shoulder, and revealed a luxury style gold lining. I’m betting that will be chic and warm come next winter…
