“Jewel of the Nile” Collection

The Jewel of the Nile was Tori Nichel’s debut collection for Fall/Holiday 2006. Inspired by the divine textures and colors of the Egyptian desert and pyramids, the collection showcased beautiful cashmere, wool and silks tailored to perfection in a chic and eclectic way. Tori Nichel’s approach to design always has a hint of seventies infused in the collection. In 2006, she was one of the first to introduce the high waist proportions which she exploited throughout the collection with her high waisted pants, jumpsuit, belted sheath dress and high waisted belted trench coat. This collection introduced what has become Tori Nichel’s signature piece in her collection, “The Angel’s Jumpsuit”. In addition, the Jewel of the Nile collection gave birth to Tori Nichel’s best selling ‘City Dress’.
