Top 10 Picks

1.1-nicole_farhi

For summer 2012, Nicole Farhi pays tribute to the forthcoming Olympic Games introducing elements of retro sports gear, delivering a versatile and urban collection.

2.2-nicole_farhi_28

Drawing inspiration from the historic 1908 London Games and the 1981 iconic film 'Chariots of Fire', the collection focuses on traditionally English sporting disciplines from rowing and fencing to athletics and horse riding.

3.3-nicole_farhi_4

Innovation, technology, performance and comfort, are applied to traditional menswear attire. Sporting elements are worked in - ergonomic tailoring flows throughout the collection, garments are seamsealed, not always stitched and traditional fabrics are treated with modern techniques.

4.4-nicole_farhi_1

Elements such as straps, tape and binding feature throughout and garments are treated with a 'chalk' finish, giving texture and tone.

5.5-nicole_farhi_10

Heightened capabilitiy is given to traditional fabrics and garments - smooth Lycra jersey is bonded with linen and canvas.

6.6-nicole_farhi_23

The parka`s construction is revised - heavy canvas outer contrasts with a lightweight double layer inner.

7.7-nicole_farhi_12

Knitwear takes new form. The classic 'cricket' jumper is reworked fusing cable knit cotton with technical interlining.

8.8-nicole_farhi_7

The colour palette is neutral with cool grey, chalk and optic white fading into ivory, chino and khaki, punctuated with lime. Air force blue runs into navy.

9.9-nicole_farhi

Launching for S/S 2012, sunglasses compliment the collection.
