He unconsciously created a "Boyfriend/Brother Wardrobe" for women to borrow.
With the military stylings of strict tailoring and strategic zippers and buckle placements, the Belt Buckle Sweater, above, can be worn alone as a very femme fatale sexy sweater dress with dark hosiery and a black, high-heel, knee-high boots.
Orthodox Streamlined Bomber Jacket
As Creative Director/Designer, Mr. Niccoli sucked the puffiness out of the bomber jacket then tuck it into a leaner safari-like jacket then polished it up with functional zippered welted pockets, neatly placed on the torso.
This "Motorcycle Chic" taken to a new level. Replacing the staid blazer with this mean and lean bomber, giving men, not a macho attitude, but a mature yet industrial savviness.
Something that an uber New Yorker, as in James Aguiar, can wear scooting between Manhattan and Paris.
Orthodox Franz Kline Brush Stroked Blouse with high-waisted mini and leather jacket
For the intelligentsia set or clique, Mr. Niccoli used Abstract Expressionist, Franz Kline's "action brush strokes" as New Wavish patterns for this blouse and a dress.
Not of Orthodox is dipped in moody, inky colors or restricted to strict tailoring.
Remembering how actual women live or want to live, here is this warm weather-friendly wrap sweater in season-less rainbow stripes.
The man, himself, the Creative Director/Designer, Eric Niccoli
Starting out with a simple agenda, designing classic, not staid, clothes that are fashionable, not faddish, Eric Niccoli unexpectedly constructed a subtly sensual clothing line where women still want to dress like women, not little girls; and where men want to dress like men for the twentieth-first century, not their grandfathers.
He surprisingly outfitted a new generation of a Bloomsbury Group for the new century.
