Nicole Farhi has come along way since her Victorian porcelain dolls debuted in Autumn 2005. Gone are the larger-than-life historical references and her new collection is all about the here and now. No-nonsense, career-friendly ensembles, cast in moody hues, like black, gray, mocha and mossy green-- enlivened with a few splashes of burgundy and red -- form the backbone of the lineup.
