It’s when a designer is really in tune with their signature while knowing how to step out of their comfort zone that a lot of the best work is done, and no one is more hard-wired into this than Nicoll.
Simple and intriguing, the collection, which he called ‘special normal’, moved slightly away from his minimal sporty vibe as biker influences, prints and
a hyper-saturated orange (all carried over from his menswear) took him into new territory. Oversized shapes punctuated the collection as Nicoll deftly moved from delicate to ‘denim’ (well, a woven cashmere actually) via the mannish and the glossy.
In short Cool, calm and collected, Nicoll’s careful brand building means his high-fashion commerciality is poised to influence beyond his LFW peers.
