The Nicole Group is one of Italy’s most important bridal companies, known for its quality, its sense of style, and its ability to set trends. Debbie Johnston of Deborah Rose Agencies is now representing the portfolio in the UK and Ireland, and watching the network of prestigious stockists spiral
Nicole Fashion Group boasts a magnificent collection of labels, eight in all, which includes two sparkling newcomers. Luxury by Nicole, as the name suggests, brings together design excellence and the highest quality fabrics. The other is Lovely Wedding Curves, a line that caters specifically to the bride who wants to accentuate her positives and dress with panache on her big day.
The creative force behind these best-selling labels is led by Alessandra Rinaudo, co-owner of Nicole with her husband Carlo Marco Cavallo, the business brains.
Alessandra is an internationally respected designer whose work is loved by brides in 52 countries and celebrities across the world; she is also host to her own-name television series in Italy, which ensures she is at the forefront of the industry and first in every brides’ thoughts.
Formed in 1996 in Piedmont, the company today has an incredible reach, spreading its beautiful message not only to a legion of appreciative stockists, but also to their brides themselves. The support programme, which is core to the company’s promotional activity, leaves no opportunity out of the loop – social media, advertising, television exposure, digital catalogues and an impressive web presence ensures that the name – and the latest looks – stay in the bridal limelight.
Each season, Nicole produces many hundreds of samples to satisfy the tastes and wants of its impressively large audience, while keeping its individual brands distinct in their personality. It would be easy to simply make small changes in styles and to carry one basic model across the ranges, but this is not the Nicole way of working.
Each label has something special to offer and every design is an original for that brand.
Magnificent laces, embroideries, lighter-than-air chiffons and the softest tulles feature throughout the core collections – Nicole, Colet, Jolies, Aurora, Romance, Luxury by Nicole and Lovely with Curves, while the top-of-the-market Alessandra Rinaudo uses the most opulent fabrics and embellishments, as one would expect from an exclusive couture range.
Included in the 2019 collections are sexy mermaid silhouettes, dressings of intricate floral appliqués, and the introduction of gentle colour that brides are opting for today.
KNOW THE PORTFOLIO
Alessandra Rinaudo represents Italian sartorial excellence at its very best. From innovative understated slip dresses, to sinuous mermaids, every detail is exemplary. 3D floral embroideries and prominent sleeves are much in evidence while capes cover the shoulders and add a regal touch. Powder pink is colour to love.
Romance Think fairytale here, and soft, flowing lines, in gently-sculpted mermaid dresses, and ballgowns with jewelled bodices and full layered skirts. Rich embroideries, crystal and Swarovski decorations add to the magic on show here.
Nicole is where bridal style and high fashion combine in a look that is fresh, different and always charming. The cut is beautiful, the shapes and fabrics light, the laces and macramés are thoroughly modern. Sparkling crystals, shimmering tulle and intricate embroidery, highlight boldly stated illusion panels.
Colet will be first choice for many, mainly because of its excellent colour options – whether they be muted tones or fairytale pastels. Best of all are the pinks and greens, and echoes in the prettiest floral prints.
Jolies epitomises fusion styling, bringing together vintage and bohemian inspiration revisited with a chic and very modern twist. There are full lace dresses, gowns with soft movement, maxi skirts in the lightest blue, and a certain casualness that will delight brides when they want to go barefoot.
Aurora is for the bride who is into refined good looks, and underplayed elegance. The fabrics here are smooth and the cut relies on immaculate tailoring techniques to perfect every line of each dress – from the scoop of a daringly low back, to the distinct curve of a skirt.
Luxury by Nicole is a celebration of the company’s 20th anniversary. Embroidered and 3D-effect laces, fascinating silhouettes, deep and sensual necklaces, and colour feature in this deliciously different capsule collection of sumptuous dresses for a bride who wants to stand out.
Nicole Lovely Wedding Curves is the perfect name for the perfect collection, created for brides who want a gown that’s been designed expressly for them.
