"I approached my collection as if I had my own nightclub and all the boys were patrons of the club," Richard Nicoll says of his spring/summer 2014 presentation.
By incorporating lightweight Cool Wool throughout the collection Nicoll enhances his garments’ wearability through the warmer summer months. With a focus on simplicity and authenticity, Nicoll showcases Merino wool by bringing a relaxed youthfulness to his tailoring through sporty detailing.
"It was about making a classical suit into the contemporary and celebrating individualism through the way that it was styled together," Nicoll says.
By taking classic tailoring and giving it a modern interpretation, Nicoll brings his own fresh take to wool, a textile which he says is integral to his work as a designer.
"Merino wool is an important aspect of my collections," the English born, Australian raised designer says. "It anchors the collections with a modern elegance and authenticity and brings a complementary contrast to the more casual pieces to create a cool mashed and eclectic definition of modern style."
