Nicole Farhi’s competitive edge

Fashion can’t help but draw from the events happening around it, be they in the past or the future. With the Olympic Games cartwheeling their way into London next year there’s little surprise that athletic wear has formed the basis of many a spring 2012 menswear collection. Count Nicole Farhi’s offering amoungst them. Inspired by traditionally English sporting disciplines like rowing and fencing, Farhi’s looks marry sporty fabrics and details with relaxed tailoring; a combination we expect to see plenty more of for the season.
