A 360-degree tour of the shows, from the invitations to backstage reports, grooming trends and venue highlights
There is a pendulum that swings between Richard Nicoll's men's collections - from an almost jailbird uniformity towards opulent dandyisms - and it seems that S/S 2015 struck a keen balance between the two. Nicoll opened with some of his best workwear pieces yet: cargo pants, a boiler suit and squared jackets cut in filmy checks, scratchy denim or foiled cotton, with papery Tyvek pushing the industrial, crumpled look to its limit. Later, decorative elements crept into the silhouette (the fleur de lys tapestry shorts and glossy tie-dye hoodies particularly stood out), furthering the 'embellished normality' that Nicoll was pushing, right down to the Adidas Gazelles on foot. They were dotted with plastic buttons and bottle caps, but resembled zany white bouquets.Photography: Jason Lloyd-Evans
