The iconic buildings of London are a big influence for Nico’s autumn/winter 2011 collection.
Architectural shapes manifest themselves in exaggerated collars, layered up pieces, and lean silhouettes.
The usual unique details, which Nico’s name has become renowned for, are present as ever. Creating an ever more youthful, chic, as well as classy collection.
This idea of the garment being adaptable to wearer is inspired by the way buildings are created to suit their surroundings. The shape of the Gherkin building that allows for transparency, and lets more natural light in was a key influence.
Colors are drawn from this urban source; slate grays, metallic browns and jet black. Injections of bights, such as turquoise and electric blue, brings excitement to this palette.
Fabrics are luxurious as always; quality wools and robust alpaca complementing the tweed suits and the luxurious cottons introduce new textures.
This exciting collection brings a new wardrobe of possibilities to the existing and new Nico Didonna customer. Those looking for something sophisticated and beautiful are provided for fully. The different shapes and complimentary colors of the pieces allow them to be built up as outfits, or worn alone as standout pieces.
With versatility at the forefront, this collection can equally be worn to the most glamorous functions, or on more casual days. Whatever, the situation, one thing is guaranteed; you will be the talk of the moment!
