The LCM shows saw fashion favourite, Richard Nicoll dip his toe into menswear and what a well rounded and cohesive collection it was. A muted palette of white, nude and blue hues, accented by a colour pop of yellow Nicoll’s collection reflected his womenswear in its calming cuts and and soft, wearable pieces. The vibe was definitely relaxed, sporty separates with leather baseball jackets, rolled hem trousers, short sleeved shirts and leather ponchos some of the key shapes. The collection print focussed on squares with adorned both tee’s and fine knitwear in different sizes. Brocade trousers and shorts in ice blue and creamy gold tones were a particular favourite and added some rich detailing and fabric experimentation. A beautifully crafted first collection proving it was the right time for Nicoll to add a menswear line.
