richard nicoll s/s '12

There was a wonderful calm sexiness about Richard Nicoll's S/S '12 collection, which he recently showed at London Fashion Week; it was as if he was trying to seduce us with every look. Hems were either cropped at a risque height just below the buttocks, or long and sheer revealing hints of long, lean legs underneath. The colour palette was serenely romantic; soft and dreamlike. His prints were blurred as if looking at them through hazy eyes, but were offset with a modern twist with the help of futuristic metallic textiles. Nicoll struck a perfect balance between fantasy and reality; giving us just a hint of the dream while still delivering it in a thoroughly wearable way. We can't wait to get our hands on these pieces next summer!  P.S. The eyewear you see in the show?  You guessed it: appearing on the catwalk was the second collaboration between Richard Nicoll x Ksubi, available in Asia March 12.
