Richard Nicoll Fall 2011: Modern Sport
Richard Nicoll called out the 1920s and sport as Fall 2011 inspirations, and you could see those references in his silhouettes--dropped waists, baseball jackets, raglans, and drawstrings. But there's an elegance to Nicoll's clothes that only fine silk crepes and satins--cut with the utmost rigor--can confer. The high neckline was quite directional--we're bound to see more dresses and blouses move upward. And the trains--cut at sharp, 90 degree angles--brought a discipline to the style not seen on other runways.
