Sensible sophistication set the tone at the Richard Nicoll AW13 show, a collection titled the ‘special normal’ which spanned expertly selected palette and textures.
Richard Nicoll chose to channel a cool, calm and collected women of the season dressed in shades of grey from draping tailored two pieces to a cleanly cut jumpsuit.
Greys and navies were matched with flashes of silver shoes and shiny navy, pale blue silk was paired gracefully with snippets of peach, nude leather pencil skirts and dresses with stretch panelling detail and fur front dresses went from sexy demure to quirky sublime.
The colour wheel spun into full motion when blood orange exploded down the run way, worn in a stand out hip length leather jacket with silver zip detail to an elbow length knit and floor skimming thigh splitting skirt.
This collection skilfully showed Richard’s intelligence of being able to pair the bold primaries with classic muted tones, experimenting in rich fabrics such as satin, vinyl and leather to create a smart, sexy and aesthetically informed shape.
