Richard Nicoll returned to the runway with a collection that focused on clean, athletic-inspired designs. The lineup ran from sporty pieces, such as zippered parkas in white or gray nylon and blouson jackets in leather or jersey, to dressier looks that played with the athletic theme, such as a white minidress with mesh panels inset at the neck and skirt. The designer worked evening pieces in technical fabrics, as in an electric blue nylon T-shirt dress with billowing nylon trains. While the collection didn’t break new ground, Nicoll’s creations had a polished, commercial appeal.
