NIC+ZOE

NIC+ZOE Logo
Dorian Lightbown, the Creative Director & designer behind NIC+ZOE, has always had a passion for knitwear. Even as a little girl, she didn’t just play with dolls—she styled and outfitted them. After attending Pratt and RISD as a young woman, she moved to Paris, which remains one of her favorite sources of design inspiration to this day. Then after over 20 years of bringing her ideas to life as a knitwear designer, she followed her entrepreneurial spirit and launched her own company in 2005.

Affectionately named after her two favorite people—her children, Nicholas & Zoë— the company is both a family business and a brand built upon feel-good fabrics. From finding the softest yarns in Shanghai to discovering new color palates in Italy, Dorian travels the world for the creative inspiration and technological innovations that help her seasonally reinvent knitwear. Her visionary approach to hand selecting textiles, designing prints, artisanally mixing colors and creating new stitching techniques ensures every design is unique. Each season, Dorian delivers a uniquely colored collection including sweaters, skirts, jackets, tops, dresses and pants, in both knits and wovens. It’s for women who wrap themselves in self-expression and wear their beauty from the inside, out—women like her daughter, Zoë, women like her industry mentors and, most of all, women like you.

I am a medium in most brands, but ordered Large in this and it was too large. I think a Medium would have also been a bit sloppy. The style and fabric are very nice.

These pants have a slickness, like polyester with a seam up the front like a crease. The waist is too large but the legs were tight fitting. 5"5" 127lbs.

This top is nicely made, however like the previous review, it belled out at the bottom. Not a good look for me.

I ordered a medium which is perfect- I take an 8. It has some nice detailing, but is also just a basic black dress that is flattering and multi-functional. Cute.

I own a lot of black dresses, and I’m always looking for something a little different. I love this dress! Slips over the head and beautiful design. I’m a perfect 8, and this is true to size. Fitted bodice, then floats away from body, with pockets, and tulip unique finished bottom. Cute and easy to wear- dress up or down.

I bought the white linen version and it fit in my expected size. But there were too many zippers and things on the white; they distracted from the style, to me. Also, the collar had a metal wire in it to help it hold its shape. Ick. Didn't care for that. Just not what I'm looking for, tho I liked the soft drapey linen.

The pants fit well in a size 2. I’m 5’4 and 107 and that is true to size. The fabric was stiff and heavy and looked cheap up close. I’m glad I tried these and will search for something better for summer heat.

This sweater is nice quality and fits well, but is not a style that is becoming to me. It's too short, somewhat shapeless and the color is all wrong for me. It's coming back. Sorry.

Striking design. Love the knit...I can tell it will hold its shape by the feel of it...soft, but substantial. Can't wait to wear it in cooler weather.

This skirt is the perfect length and weight for Florida warm weather. I had been looking for a black skirt to go with a top that I have. I will wear the outfit often.

This top is not at all what I was expecting! The material is very thin and cheap-looking. Absolutely EVERYTHING shows! I may be able to wear it, but only if I put another camisole underneath. This is not Zappo's quality and definitely not worth $50! I am very disappointed and I would send it back if a trip to the PO wasn't so risky.

Beautiful comfortable versatile. What else can I say? I love the different ways that I can style this sweater. Tying it in front goes great with my high waisted pants and dresses. This sweater is a big upgrade from the usual straight button up cardigan, which can look frumpy. True to size. The sleeves are slightly shorter, hitting just at the wrist bone, which I think looks very slimming.

The material was great! They were just what I wanted except the fit was off! The 14p was really large and that is what I normally wear. The 12p fit fine on top but the legs were large and gapped all over.
