The Nicole Farhi label is known for elegant menswear and womenswear, but since the nineties its scope has expanded to encompass swimwear, shoes, accessories, home furnishings, eveningwear, and restaurants, including 202 in New York. The brand is backed by U.K. megabrand French Connection, for which Farhi designed for over a decade. There are nine freestanding Nicole Farhi stores around the world and showrooms in London, Paris, Milan, and Madrid.
Romantic detailing, soft, neutral colors and luxurious, textural fabrics. Sharp tuxedo suits with silk or satin bows at the necks of blouses, knee-length skirts cinched by silk cummerbunds, and floor-sweeping gowns billowing with lace ruffles or in silk georgette.
