Nicole Farhi Spring 2013
Massimo Nicosia and Nicole Farhi created something magical in London for spring next season. With terry cotton-like fabrics adorning the clothes, and white running rampant throughout the collection, it truly felt like summer in the Royal Institute of British Architects. Harking to a more idyllic and classical approach to the summer-y weather, the ménage of pants, shorts, and shirts were permeated by unique prints in shades of blue and burgundy, whilst terracotta also poked it’s hazy summer evening head around. The classic cuts and tailoring were synonymous with a Farhi collection, and whilst classically British, it was very ‘in the now’ – after all, there’s something inextricably modern about a t-shirt with terry cotton paneling, or a printed blazer with a terry lapel, isn’t there?
