Tonight Sportsgirl launched their collaboration range with London based designer Richard Nicoll. Fashion Conscious Sportsgirl’s could get there affordable Nicoll pieces in store as of yesterday, however tonight the fabulous designer who is also sponsored by Topshop, was there himself to discuss his exciting new range. The event which was hosted by the lovely Miss Kate Waterhouse (amazing!), who knows her fare share about fashion, was held at Sportsgirl's flagship Sydney Pitt St store. Models took to the Minnie love heart covered runway, while Nicoll discussed each garment in detail. The laid back Australian raised designer, who has dined with the likes of Vivienne Westwood, is proud to be working with Sportsgirl because it is such an 'iconic Australian brand.' He also enjoys being able to appeal to a 'younger demographic' with more affordable pieces, than his own collection offers. Masculine fabrics and feminine tailoring are clear, with the mixture of structured shirts, playsuits and fitted trousers. The 9 piece capsule; which mainly consists of separates, sports juxtaposing elements with hounds tooth tailoring, thin stripes, and checks. The heart motives, bows, and short skirting add a sense of fun and quirkiness to the silhouettes. This is of course contrasted with the boyish tailored suiting and bomber jackets which create that sharp, Richard Nicoll edge. The designs are beautiful and it’s hard to pick a stand out piece, as they all fit in together and are all relevant. If you haven't raced to a Sportsgirl store already, I suggest you do so. It's not every day you get to have such a remarkable designers garments in your wardrobe for such a low price.
