Richard Nicoll for Fred Perry Laurel Wreath S/S 2011 collection
Our favourite Aussie-born designer, Richard Nicoll, has launched his first Laurel Wreath collection for Fred Perry. Here is the lookbook for the Spring/Summer 2011 collection which has been inspired by Ken Russell's iconic portraits of 1950s teddy girls, as well as Nicoll's own SS09 sportswear collection.
"I like the idea that something as conservative and traditional as a cameo brooch could become subversive in the right hands. From here we referenced my acid colour blocked SS09 sportswear influenced collection and added old-fashioned elements like pointelle cardigans and mother of pearl laurel brooches for branding," said Nicoll.
