For the Spring-Summer 2015 Ready-To-Wear Collection, the creative director at Nina Ricci, Peter Copping, took inspiration from the house’s heritage – when Madam Ricci and her son Robert would create scale models of couture dresses to promote French fashion during the post-war period. Copping called the collection “Make Do and Mend,” in a nod to the fashions of the 1940s.
The designer has used materials like two-tone double crepe, a maxi houndstooth print, cotton and wrinkled metallic cotton, napa, lace, fil coupé jacquard, pearls and jet beads.
In the collection you can see a slim silhouette, with mannish accents in the shirts with revisited proportions. The suits are inspired by military uniforms, the day dresses are fluid and simple, while the evening wear is combination of different laces or laser cut flowers with jet beading.
Look at the pictures below and you will see what I am talking about. I realy hope that you will like the romantic, super-feminine and exquisitely Parisian style of the collection. Enjoy and stay up for more next time!
