has just scored himself a new gig and we bet you’ll never guess what it is. The London Fashion Week fave is going to be the new creative director of super-preppy British brand Jack Wills.
In an unlikely but amazing fashion pairing, Richard Nicoll has been appointed to lead the Jack Wills team as they develop the brand globally, while focusing on British design values. With Nicoll’s mainline collection showcasing sumptuous fabrics, desirable dresses and his signature mannish tailoring (oh, those coats) we can’t wait to see how he will translate his style to JW, a label that just keeps going from strength to strength.
Just in case that excitement isn’t enough, in other fashion news there’s word going round that Rihanna will soon be launching her own fashion line. The singer hasn’t given anything else away, so we can only wait with baited breath to hear more. Given that she’s no longer designing for River Island, this is great news indeed. Happy Wednesday fashion fans.
