Catwalk review: Nico-D

Nico-D opened day three of London Fashion Week at Vauxhall Fashion Scout showcasing both his men's and women's collections. The menswear favoured classicly chic Italian tailoring, yet subtle quirks confirmed a British influence. The palette was neutral with strong lines, sharp tailoring, chunky knits and sheepskin coats hinting at a hidden softer, more tactile side. As the show progressed the glamour factor increased exponentially with shiny trousers and sequin-covered jackets lighting up the runway.

The womenswear was an entirely different affair with a host of mini-dresses and drop-crotched jumpsuits in fluid fabrics and an altogether more vibrant colour scheme consisting of fuchsia pink, plum, electric blue set against more black sequins. A delicate balance was struck between showing off the female form with streamline silhouettes and playful voluminous sleeves, and collars on cinched-in jackets. The wearability of the collection was demonstrated by versatility of adjustable necklines and hemlines. Kelly Davis
