PFW A/W 13-14: Nina Ricci


Paris Fashion Week continues into the weekend, with Peter Copping showing a refined, elegant collection for Nina Ricci yesterday.

Inspired by ballerinas, Copping paired fluid silks with wrist warmers, headbands, slim-fitting knitwear and layered basics resembling the leotards that form the basis for dance apparel. While the eveningwear and ladylike suiting Nina Ricci is known for remained, knitted sweaters and fur-trimmed capes and coats had more of a presence this season as Copping pushed the French brand’s wearable daywear to the forefront of the collection.

As the show progressed, so did the glamour, with pastel ruffles, ruched corsetry and Ostrich feather embellishment referencing the romance and decadence of Swan Lake. Black and crimson looks provided a bold contrast to the sugary tones while the combination of butter-wouldn’t-melt A-line skirts with polished post-war silhouettes and soft drapery ensured a constant, heightened sense of femininity.

Paris Fashion Week continues until March 6 2013.
