Nicole Farhi Spring/Summer 2012

Nicole Farhi Spring/Summer 2012

 Nicole Farhi’s design inspiration comes from the best possible place – real life. Today Nicole Farhi presides over one of Britain’s best-loved fashion and lifestyle brands – encompassing menswear, accessories, diffusion lines, and fragrances. And all her collections share the same values – they are easy but elegant, understated but chic, thoroughly luxurious and yet consistently accessible. Born to Turkish parents, Farhi was bought up in Nice in the south of France and the exoticism of the former and light breeziness of the latter, is subtly woven into everything she creates. She moved to London, setting up her eponymous label in 1982. Farhi by Nicole Farhi, menswear followed in 1989.

Farhi by Nicole Farhi, menswear followed in 1989. Yet despite that richly evocative upbringing, a sense of Britishness is also a key to understanding Farhi’s idiosyncratic take on laid-back style.

Nicole Farhi Spring Cardigan

Fashion can’t help but draw from the events happening around it, be they in the past or the future. Offering relaxed silhouettes, light colours of neutrals and whites with futuristic motif. Sweater-like jackets, fitted suits, casual jackets, trench coats, raincoats with hood, harnessed shirts, nylon polo’s, neoprene tops, Farhi’s looks marry sporty fabrics and details with relaxed tailoring; a combination we expect to see plenty more of for the season.

All designs are made like a modern classic, that’s why this collection looks like a classic man of tomorrow.
