As an Australian, Nicholl has an acute view on Brit sub-cultures. This season he tuned in to David Bowie's 'Thin White Duke' period, via the late seventies skinhead movement, with his fierce-looking line-up of quiff-headed models. Long-pleat chiffon skirts were topped with sculpted bomber jackets, or sheer tops with pleated necklines, framing angular faces. The maxi silhouette was played with with aplomb, while pleats also formed caped backs on fluttery dresses, trimmed with patent leather. Little hem swirls kicked out from linear pencil skirts in twinkly tweed - all of which made for outfits worthy of a spectacular party entrance - laced, of course, with a street savvy knowledge of music culture.
