“Frida: A Love Story”

Tori Nichel’s Spring 2007 collection “Viva la Vida”, “Live the Life”, is inspired by the colorful life, love and sadness Frida Kahlo experienced in her lifetime and conveyed through her art. Tori Nichel captures the romance and sensuality Frida expressed through her usage of delicate lace, low cut backs and plunging necklines. Tori Nichel builds on the success of her fall dresses this season by adding printed silk jerseys and playful cocktail mini’s to the offering. Staying true to her signature tailoring, Tori Nichel continues to expand her intricate pleat details in her jackets and adds mitering to her high waist trouser silhouette. Tori Nichel on Spring, “I want the Tori Nichel woman to be simply chic in an effortless and understated manner. It’s about romance and beauty in a non-girly way.”
