Richard Nicoll



Australian born designer Richard Nicoll looked at early photographs of his neighboring island, Tahiti, for inspiration for S/S 10. Flowers native to the exotic black sand beaches, like the hibiscus, became motifs for monochrome prints on wrap dresses skirts and tops, some in high-shine glazed linen. Indigenous madras cloths were draped over strapless dresses and twisted into bow-front halter-tops. Tassels from ceremonial garb were incorporated onto scarves that were tied around necks and waists, and embellished straw hats that resembled thatched huts. Earrings were fashioned from coconut shells for more South Seas glamour.
