STRUCTURE + FLUIDITY
London: Richard Nicoll was yet another designer that went light and airy for spring, opening his show with a white transparent organza tee with a femme peplum and a matching accordion pleated skirt made from sheer chiffon. The designer introduced some structure with a slim, cap-sleeved jacket with black trim that delineated its precise shape, but paired the piece with easy high-waisted, wide-leg trousers. The structured fluidity continued with flowing long-layered looks with stiff leather panels holding in their volume. Pink leather was lacquered to a high shine and used for a slim sheath and for trim that outlined dresses and tops. A leather bustier and skinny pants offered an alternative silhouette, but Nicoll’s most successful looks this season were of the easy, ethereal sort.
