    I love Richard but last season was weak and this is just.. :doh:.. I don't want to be too brain-limited and reduce this to a silly comparison but seriously, we saw it in Paris last season, it's too literal not to think about it. I expect a lot more from Nicoll than 'total inspiration' from someone that's probably just as talented as he is.

    [​IMG] For AW09 Richard Nicholl created a collection that was steeped with a mystical and exhilarating sense of British romanticism.
    But while lingerie-esque shapes fashioned out of luxurious fabrics in soft pinks, nudes, creams and greys may have been feminine, Nicoll's collaboration with Linder - an artist known for her punk classicism – gave his collection a sexy provocative edge.
    Linder's prints – an array of 1950s pin up girls collaged against exuberant details of irises – were plastered on to skin tight dresses that featured built-in corsets and peek a boo tie up details down their sides.
    Whether a clear plastic raincoat or a tailored jacket with striking gold leaf, Nicoll's outerwear was as irresistible as his underwear.

    ^ Words out of mouth.

    Love it completely.
    But, like Chado Ralph Rucci, I hate the prints at the end.
    The circular shapes are great.

    I really really like this. The undergarment reference is neat and not too literal like other designers.

    I really like the palette and materials

    it's a shame...when you have British based designers, churning out collections for middle-eastern clients & their climates...some of it works, but there is no way this is aimed for the European stockists.

    Some of it I really love but other aspects aren't doing it for me.

    There seems to be a lack of lighting on the runway.. It seems a bit dark.

    I can't help but to like it despite my gripes. I think it's because the construction + quality of his work is amazing, really lovely to wear :wub:

    I love this!!!!! like robotic fetish workers from the 50's. the construction is superb...perhaps the strongest i've seen from him to date.

    I need to process this a lil. Last season was an utter disappointment, this one is certainly better. I agree with Mullet it's looking a bit Paris/Margiela/Balenciaga last season but the results are appealing to me...the eroticism, the constructions, the geometric cutouts. Not a homerun but certainly lives up to my expectation.
    Nowhere near his FW08 masterpiece though:heart:
