Nicole Farhi


London: Known for her sophisticated brand of cohesive, relaxed tailoring, Nicole Farhi opted to separate her elements for fall, working highly-structured shapes against soft, fluid forms. Trench coats and cropped jackets were finely-tailored into supple, ergonomic shapes, while crinkled cloqué sheaths cascaded in loose waves down the body and fell seductively off the shoulder. High-shine synthetics mixed with rustic wools, heightening the contradictory nature of the collection. Fat woolen yarns were woven into cozy plaid coats and paperbag-waist dirndls, contrasting with supple leather skirts and plasticized outerwear. The graphic motifs that are another Farhi trademark were softened into lovely charcoal-drawn roses for dresses and a few placed, beaded squares. Farhi makes clothes that women want to wear, and this collection succeeded in serving up plenty of flattering and chic options that transcend the boundaries of age and body type.
