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.
