Richard Nicoll set out to give urban uniforms an artisanal, customized feel, and the result was a full-on foray into color and texture — with lots of boyish charm. He worked a blue-and-white gingham check into loose trousers, shorts and boiler suits; used a crinkly, paper-bag-like fabric for silver jackets and white T-shirts; and slapped contrasting patches onto blue engineer stripe trousers. Shirts screamed summer with a bright yellow flower print that also popped up as patches on contrasting trousers. Tailored jackets came with skinny baby blue and white stripes, or with a honeycomb-like weave at the front, and red and blue color blocks at the back.
