L’AIR DU TEMPS
Peter Copping (formerly at Vuitton under Marc Jacobs) revealed his debut collection for Nina Ricci, successfully capturing the spirit of the historic house with “lightness, femininity and romanticism”. Classic French lingerie colors like face powder buff, blush pink and jet black were worked into delicately detailed layers. Tiered slip dresses, lace aprons and ruched pencil skirts were worn over tissue-weight ribbed capri-length leggings that fastened with baby buttons. Cardigans, long or cropped, were layered over all, whether in sheer knits or floral-patterned lace; one was in a soft spearmint hue, providing a welcome pop of color. Textures imitated cosmetics too, with creamy perforated leathers, glazed cellophane-look chiffons and matte cottons that were illuminated by a hint of sparkle. Collaged panels of lace and mesh brought a sexy-girdle appeal to a pencil skirt. Floral bralettes peering through transparent tops and thigh-high slits for slim skirts were both demure with alluring. What looked like porcelain tea roses were clustered on shoulders, and lacey cutouts for bags and booties, scalloped edges, ribbon-ties and paillette-covered clutches added more femme frills.
