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.
