Nina Ricci

Nina Ricci Cruise/Resort 2013


New York: Peter Copping presented a range of romantic looks that will take the Nina Ricci woman from the office to cocktails to formal events. His pencil skirts were among the best of the season; one featured ruching near the knee, a novel idea. Copping was among the high-end designers who presented denim looks for Cruise/Resort. His denim was dark and raw, used for everything from a simple coat to a jaunty skirt suit to a ruffled dress pieced with black silk. Wispy, romantic items are sure to appeal to his clientele. A light-as-air mauve printed gown pieced with lace was a highlight. To achieve the effect for day, Copping provided an ultra-fine-gauge black sweater with fluttering chiffon strands escaping from the collar. Lingerie seemed to be a touch point, with slip-inspired dresses and bras and tap pants peeking through sheer layers. ­–Joanna Manganaro
