Nina Ricci strikes the perfect balance of classic femininity and romantic soul with just the right touch of modernity.
Guillaume Henry finds a comfortable pace in Nina Ricci’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection. From sheer organza blouses to lace-infused dresses, Nina Ricci envisions a woman comfortable in her sensuality. A sumptuous colour palette of eggplant, pewter, and moss-green shades shines through in exquisitely tailored pieces and glimpses of satin sheen. Our wish list includes the red velvet long-sleeved dress with the peekaboo bodice and front slit skirt – there’s a hint of old Hollywood glamour there, and we’re ready for the paparazzi.
It’s been all change at Nina Ricci recently. During his five-year tenure at Nina Ricci, former creative director Peter Copping was successful in his work that was as confident as it was soft, “typically French – sexy but not vulgar”, and in line with modern-day femininity. We waited with bated breath to see how Guillaume Henry would fill his shoes… we weren’t wrong to be pretty damn excited.
