Welcome, Mr. Nils
After leaving Stockholm at the age of 18, Nilsson moved to Paris to study at the École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture, and during this time he interned in the tailoring atelier at Chanel before going to Christian Lacroix, where he remained for nine years, becoming a senior designer. In the late 90s he worked with John Galliano at Dior as a coordinator for both the haute couture studio and fur collections, until he finally made the move to New York where he briefly worked as design director for the Polo Ralph Lauren women’s wear collection.
The Swede gained considerable momentum when he took over as creative director of Bill Blass from 2003 until he returned to Paris as the creative director of Nina Ricci in 2006. After much critical acclaim, he left his position to join Gianfranco Ferré following the designer’s sudden death. After a six-month stint at the house, Nilsson left in the spring of 2008. Since then, he has remained relatively under-the-radar, appearing at a few select events hosted by friends in New York and Paris and cultivating his love of art and culture.
