Any remaining doubts about the vibrant new energy coming out of London’s burgeoning menswear scene were surely put to rest Sunday with Richard Nicoll‘s powerful, provocative Spring 2014 show, which firmly cemented his place as one of the young talents to watch in the British capital. Working in the same vein of upbeat, energetic sportswear that has helped him make his name, Nicoll sent out a sharp collection of vibrant looks that bristled with creativity, from the sweatshirts decorated with collage artist Linder Sterling’s graphic prints (a combination of birds, snakes, and—why not?—beefcake) to the soft shimmer of a subtle python pattern that showed up in outerwear and Ben Allen’s slim trousers. Nicoll demonstrated his talent with color, working with a rich electric blue for Anders Hayward’s trench coat and Robert Laby’s sheer pullover. There was a dark and subversive edge to the athletic pieces, in a baseball tee fronted in black leather, in the swinging gingham shirts that were just a bit oversized, in a pale jumpsuit in microscopic pinstripes. The standout piece was a turquoise leather baseball jacket, young, refreshing, and inventive enough to make you want to keep looking.
