Nina Ricci



Paris: It seems that Peter Copping has gotten situated at Nina Ricci, as his vision for S/S 11 read decisively feminine. Ostrich feathers were sewn between frothy tiers on ruffled dresses, and pale pink leather bottoms looked soft and ladylike with gently cinched drawstring waists. Copping included something for every kind of girly-girl. For the demure delicate flower, there were crinkled silk slip dresses and pretty tailored cardigans with raw edges. For the unapologetically femme extrovert, Copping supplied shocking pink frilly numbers and a bold fuchsia pencil suit. Lastly, for the girl who likes to mix things up by adding a menswear element, a classic trench was perfect. While rosy hues and froufrou details reflected the designer’s own penchant for feminine frills, there were also beautiful bleeding watercolor florals that came from a collaboration with artist Marc Lalique. Copping’s aesthetic seems to blend seamlessly into Nina Ricci’s, and after last season’s well-recieved hourglass suits and these tasteful yet frothy confections, it’s safe to say that he is on a roll.
