Paris Fashion Week SS15: Snapshots at Richard Nicoll

Richard Nicoll collaborated with Disney's Tinkerbell for Spring/Summer 2015 on a collection that was positively fairytale-like and fit for - who else - Tinkerbell herself.

Dreamy draped pieces paired with a twinkling Swarovski-studded cropped top--a look straight off of Richard Nicoll's Spring/Summer 2015 runway.  This sparkling cropped top could easily become a summer must-have, the perfect layering piece.

Speaking of the perfect layering piece, here's the same Swarovski encrusted cropped top in a sporty heather grey, layered under a utilitarian style jumpsuit with zippers in the back to expose some interesting undergarments; a great way to add a touch of femininity to an androgynous piece.

Tinkerbell herself made a quite literal appearance hanging off of these pretty pastel waist bags.  This season, Richard Nicoll partnered up with iconic sportswear label Sweaty Betty to create a line of seriously fashionable sportswear that can easily be worn both during and after a work-out.

Gingham was another strong motif in the Richard Nicoll collection this season.  Nicoll used the fabric due to its quintessentially summery aesthetic, but applied it to unexpected pieces such as jumpsuits and tailored short suits.

We love the little details visible through Nicoll's collections, such as this micro gingham trim on the sleeve of this gingham jacket.

There's no denying that Tinkerbell herself would love this little dress for summer!

We also so lots of drapery and metallic accents this season at Richard Nicoll.  The drapery was a nice way to give the collection a soft, dreamlike quality, while metallic remained a strong trend for the SS15 season.

We could easily see a pair of these metallic slides becoming our go-to pair of summer shoes.

Finally, Richard created these unique pieces of jewellery based on the idea of taking an every day object such as your earphones and giving them a fantastical quality by turning them into gold-dipped, crystal-embellished jewels.  Genius!
