Initial reaction: 

If Patrick Bateman made it to prom.

Unexpected details: 

The return of ruffles – and lot’s of them. This was a subtle throwback to the kitsch charm of the 70s (in the best possible way). Sheer fabrics, aquatic shades and lots of volume.

Mash up: 

The collection didn’t simply pay homage to times past. Modern street wear codes – bombers and loose chequered shirts hanging out of jumpers – were set against oversized power jackets complete with fur trims.

Word up: 

It seems that slogans made it all over the runway on the first day of LC:M (see Matthew Miller’s political statements and Bobby Abley’s horror fuelled graffiti). Nicoll followed suit, printing the words ‘Brutal’ and ‘Discrete’ in neon over jersey jumpers. 

Casting: 

Spotted some of our #dazedmodelarmy recruits Matthew Bell and Abel van Oeveren.
