Before revealing a new era for the house next Fall, Nina Ricci’s studio pays homage to its historical savoir-faire.
Crafted piece by piece by whom Robert Ricci referred to as « fairy hands », the collection revisits wardrobe fundamentals in streamlined total looks: sleek tailoring, wide pants, short skirts, graphical collars and cocoon dresses. Adding this season are the twisted historical cape and flower pattern, restyled in a sprayed utility camouflage for the occasion.
Colours and textures collide in a playful mix and match. Airy tulle and fluffy mohair balance ultra- reflecting nylons and houndstooth / chevron statuary wools. A rainbow palette of powdery pink, baby blue and candy apple red contrasts with deep shades of icy white, earthy khaki and charcoal black. The broader accessory range brings its fair share of colour too in plexi techno cloche hats, metallic thigh-high boots and double strap quilted bags.
For its digital show, Nina Ricci offers an audio-visual journey into the collection’s creation process alongside its studio and atelier. As boldness and femininity have always been integral to its DNA, the Parisian house opens its doors to the Ricci’s Faces, eclectic talents from the creative industries, marking the beginning of an ever-collaborative chapter.
