Richard Nicoll Fall/Winter 2011
"Movement and freedom and comfort..." According to designer Richard Nicoll, that was the theme of his Fall 2011 collection, with the moth, both in its cocoon and on the wing, being the motif. The idea of a creature escaping from its chrysalis prison, as well as moth wings inspired a lustrous surface for the clothes with some nifty Poiret-like silhouettes.
I'm not sure if it all worked well enough, but I at least was impressed by more than a few of the coats and jackets.
