RAFW Runway Report: Nookie Spring/Summer 2010

A nice strum of the guitar begins to sound and gradually, it grows louder. Soon, a man and a woman stand before the attendees ; the former playing the guitar and the latter singing her heart out. Like some sort of sonic opium, the duo incites the crowd into a sort of cheerful frenzy, setting the stage for the first three models who storm down the runway with their floor-length cardigans billowing behind them.

Unsurprisingly, the collection features some super short mini dresses, which looked sure to attract a considerable amount of admiration from male onlookers. Full of florals, coral, kaftans, and denim, Nookie was an encapsulation of the hot Aussie summer.

Girls all around bubbled with excitement as sexy, tight dresses in floral prints and denim with diamond-shaped cutouts pounded down the catwalk. They were quintessential ‘hot’ dresses for hot girls.

Of course, in the chance of a slight nip, there was always the option of Nookie’s cast array of floor length cardies , which really ran the whole gamut in terms of colour. Or, if you were seeking a smarter, sharper option, may I entice you with some nice cuffed floral blazers?

Of course, at the end of the day, Nookie is all about fun and the navy blue sparkly flared pants were just that. The sequined hooded cardigan was also particularly spunky and would be great for those a little more courageous in their wardrobe choices.

So, if you’re looking for fun, sun and are not afraid to flash some flesh, check out Nookie’s latest range – it’s summer in a collection.
