Nicole Gill - Seventies Sheek with New Collection for AW12

If you told me to think of the 70's, an array of images would circulate in my mind. I would think of glam rock, punk, flares bigger than your face, loose morals, Bagpuss... sophistication and elegance probably wouldn't be among this. Now, thanks to Nicole Gill lingerie, I can see the 70's in a whole new light.

'Signature Stripe' consists of figure enhancing girdles, bras, knickers, bodies and nightwear. The combination of stretch silks with silk chiffon panelling generates a look that exudes femininity and nods gracefully towards current fashions.
On the new collection, Nicole notes:
"I felt inspired by the sophisticated tailored look of the 1970s and the elegant styling of the era"
'Signature Stripe' is perfectly apt a name for the collection as the delicate elegance and simplicity in design allows each piece to be a glamourous signature for every woman. Nicole Gill provides the subtle sophistication so you can 'wear it your way', so to speak.

The stripes and straps that adorn each piece not only contribute towards dramatic shapes and silhouettes, but blur the line between lingerie and outerwear. I love the idea that garments in the collection can be mixed and matched to suit different body shapes and sizes and I would quite happily wear the Allisandra Balconette Bra or the Violette Body with a pencil skirt when out and about.

The Peyton Kimono (above) is my favourite piece from the collection because I adore its ability to blend elements of a sophisticated past with a fashion forward future.

All in all, a fabulous collection definitely worth checking out! And Nicole earns extra brownie points for having an entire collection manufactured in the UK!
