Richard Nicoll-LFW A/W 2010

'Masculine Femininity'
By Richard Nicoll

It would be too simplistic to state the Nicoll has taken classic mens style and draped it on a leggy slender runway model as the term 'masculine femininity' may imply. Rather, what Richard Nicoll has done is taken inspiration from mens tailoring, old fashioned PJs and what looks to me like the a flashback to the womens style in the 1940s, especially the workwear women wore in factories during the WWII, in relation to the first image, the high waistline tapered straight- with cropped length, the bf fit shirt with the sleeves rolled. What makes the outfits really feminine are the fabrics, light, sheer, gauzy and glamorous, with a splash of luxurious velvet, combining to make a very wearable collection.

No more Lily and Lionel

After experiencing the worst of the worst from many MANY internships, i found one where they were actually really nice. Unfortunately i had to leave my new favourite place because i wasn't able to balance uni, 2 interns and a part time job.

However i had loads of lovely memories there and here are some they posted up on their official blog.

The best of the Sartorialist, Jan 2010


Casely-Hayford is creating a line for John Lewis!!!!!! :)
However, it will most likely be a bit more understated than their s/s 2010 collection :(

Desert boot remix

The Jodphur boot

Re-interpreting the classic Jodphur Boot, Lodger pulls from the traditional shoe worn by British polo players in India. Given the heat, the typical knee high riding boot was naturally cut down to ankle height. Here the profile is given a contemporary profile and a natural sole edge. The classic two part strap and buckle fastening contrasts the chocolate suede of the boot. And, as nod to equestrian roots, the brass buckle is drawn directly from saddelry.
