In his first collection for the label, Massimo Nicosia took some of Nicole Farhi’s signatures – linen, soft tailoring, and knitwear – in a fresh direction, combining them with harder-edged fabrics and finishes for the cold winter months. In his quest to transform knitwear into outerwear, Nicosia coated linen sweaters with bonded jersey and paired shirt weight linens with felt for jackets. “I wanted to give the linen some body, and keep the silhouettes from being too slouchy,” said Nicosia during a walk-through. He gave wool a weather-proof finish, too, fitting coats with lightweight, detachable nylon shells and mixed tweed with linen to give jackets extra heft and protection.
