Richard Nicoll’s tailored, modern aesthetic is about to be brought to bear on British high street brand Jack Wills. The London-based designer will be working with Jack Wills as creative director on a part-time basis, with his first collection launching in Spring 2015.

Richard’s design credentials – he’s a London Fashion Week regular, and counts Julianna Moore and Keira Knightley among his fans – will mean big things for the high street brand that has hitherto had a primarily student-based audience.

"I'm excited to be working with Jack Wills,” said Richard. “This is an opportunity to take a successful British design aesthetic and drive forward the product and vision. Wendy [Becker, Jack Wills CEO] has exciting plans to evolve the Jack Wills brand and I am looking forward to being a part of that."
