Jack Wills appoints Richard Nicoll as creative director

Jack Wills has hired London Fashion Week designer Richard Nicoll as its new creative director.

The Central St Martins trained designer will work with the retailer on a part time basis and will launch his first Jack Wills collection in the spring of 2015.

Nicoll, whose fans include Keira Knightley and Diane Kruger, will also carry on designing under his own label following his appointment.

Having launched his own line in 2006, Nicoll's experience also includes consulting for Marc Jacobs and designing capsule collections for Topshop and Fred Perry.

Commenting on Nicoll’s appointment Jack Wills chief executive Wendy Becker said: "His collections have global appeal, but he is a British designer at heart and will lead the creative direction of our brand into its next important phase.

“His aesthetic and talent in designing for both men and women will be a great match for our future vision for Jack Wills and reinforces our commitment to having quality and design at our heart."

Nicoll added: "I'm excited to be working with Jack Wills, this is an opportunity to take a successful British design aesthetic and drive forward the product and vision. Wendy has exciting plans to evolve the Jack Wills brand and I am looking forward to being a part of that."
