Join The Thread at the Paris-based maison of Nina Ricci, where we dive into the details of the spring/summer 2014 collection.
Let There Be Light: Bursts of sunshine fill the showroom of Nina Ricci, exposing glittering tweeds and ethereal fabrics.
Breakfast at Nina Ricci: C’est si bon.
Lovely Lace: The last looks presented on the runway now drape on dressmaker mannequins like works of art.
High-Tech Luxe: Sharp lines on this coat crafted from technical cotton hint at an historic period in men’s dress.
Pleats Please!: This timeless coat reveals an architectural nod to modernity with sleek, tailored pleats that add a preciousness to the construction.
Contrasting Textures: A lace skirt is fused with mirror embroideries, revealing a sparkling sentiment for spring.
It Comes Down to the Details: Crepe embellishments on the shoulders of this cotton jacket create a delicate and elegant effect.
Wardrobe-Ready: Peter Copping, the brand’s creative director, mixed pale hues and flashes of floral into his otherwise all-white palette.
Fields of Flowers: Layers of printed chiffon and subtle floral appliqués enhance the romantic mood of the collection.
A Canvas of Sophistication: Washed-out, watercolor floral makes an artfully feminine statement.
The Look to ♥: Our designer apparel buyer, Sahar Sokhandan, shares her thoughts on one of the standout looks for spring:
“What I personally love about Peter Copping is that he takes the thinking out of dressing. He makes it effortless. One of my favorite looks from the spring line is this extra-fine cashmere sweater paired with a pleated lace mini-skirt. It’s ultra-chic and luxe! I don’t know any woman who wouldn’t want to look like that.”
