Remembering Richard Nicoll: Pantone Colour Nicoll Blue

London-born fashion designer Richard Nicoll, who loved the colour blue in all its shades, is to have a Pantone colour named after him. Indeed, Nicoll Blue will be all over the entrance to 180 Strand, the heart of this year’s LFW. Remembered with great affection by all who came into contact with him, the late designer is much missed. There will be a minute’s silence in his memory just before the Central St Martin’s Show on Friday 17th February. Plans are also afoot to hold a retrospective of his work on what would have been the designer’s 40th birthday later in 2017.

Famous for the clean sculptural lines of his own designs and for his work at Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Cerruti, the designer was about to take up a creative director role at Adidas when he died suddenly. SEEN can only imagine that Nicoll would heartily approve of such an excellent way of remembering him at the very heart of the industry that he loved.
