London Fashion Week preview: Richard Nicoll

One of London’s brightest yet most laid-back stars inverts preconceived ideas of the seasons for spring 14, taking wintery wardrobe concepts and applying them to spring, alongside his ongoing collaboration with British artist Linder Sterling.

What were your key inspirations for spring 14?

I wanted to encourage an irreverent approach to spring 14 by applying traditionally wintery motifs such as layering and houndstooth to the collection, which become light, transparent and bubblegum pink in a playful take on opposing elements. In doing so I’m creating a perfectly versatile collection suitable for all hemispheres.

What are the key items?

Draped and embroidered cotton and silk daywear, devoré knitwear and cotton tailoring.

What are the key fabrics and prints?

Patchworked jacquard, breezy cotton devoré and embroidered silk essentials, as well as Lurex stripe and iconic prints [created by Sterling] to eye-bending, optical effect.

How has it been creating this collection?

It has been fairly easy going. It feels as though we have been working on it forever. It has mostly been sampled in Italy so it’s been quite hands-off until the last few weeks.
