A cobalt wool bomber jacket with a fur collar and leather sleeves, matched with a pleated miniskirt, kicked off a confident collection that showed Richard Nicoll hitting a wearable, saleable stride.
The opening looks sat squarely within his signature aesthetic — sporty, androgynous, clean — and featured other staples like parkas and jean jackets.
Nicoll also ventured beyond familiar territory. For all the boyish shapes, there was plenty of femininity on display, seen in sheer inserts in pleats, a nod to the Twenties and Thirties. Fur-fronted sweaters and skirts came in rich russet tones, baby blue or soft cream.
A group of gold jacquard dresses closed the show on an opulent note, while chenille Lurex added another touch of glamour, as in a great sparkly coat worn over lamé blouse and a prim tweed skirt.
