London Collections: Men - Richard Nicoll Spring 14
Nicoll continued to push his newly developed enthusiasm for toughed-up black for his latest outing.
Fabrics Leather, cotton, denim, python print and mesh elements.
Items Bomber jackets in moody prints or electric blue, leather-panelled T-shirts, boiler suits, python-printed trench coats, gingham trousers and casual blazers.
Themes The tough sports-lux look was strong, although the pale gingham tailoring sitting alongside black mesh and leather elements was slightly incoherent. Part gothic, part electro and part Chelsea boy in the summer.
In short There was too much going on. The leathery sportswear should still sell well if buyers can dissect the collection.
