Nicole Farhi


London: Known for her sophisticated basics, Nicole Farhi added a new sense of opulence for fall. Simple knit tops, boxy jackets and below-the-knee skirts were encrusted with metal paillettes, and slick haircalf was used for chic sheath dresses, jackets and tops. Iridescent pleated silk brought a luxurious element to clean-lined shifts, and shiny metal mesh appeared toward the end of the show. Despite the glamorous new materials and embellishments, Farhi kept her shapes as straightforward as ever, making this a successful departure for the designer.
