“I went back to the roots of the label, like all designers do in their first season at a new brand,” reasoned Nicole Farhi’s new creative director Joanna Sykes, whose men’s wear collection was shown in a presentation above the brand’s store on Conduit Street. Sykes said she was aiming to: “Get back to something organic and soulful, to Nicole’s roots as an artist, a sculptor. Using that bohemian appeal that she has about her.” The collection was built on a capsule wardrobe, headlined by pea coats, car coats, and trench coats. There were also beautifully executed knits in rich textures — waffle, rib, cable, and intarsia. The relaxed tailoring came in jersey, while shirts were hand-painted with stripes and herringbone patterns.
