Nina Ricci's Joie de Vivre

! Love it - Nina Ricci

Peter Copping evoked the ultra-feminine mood of the house, using classic haute couture fabrications including diaphanous lace and chiffon, gazar, and duchesses satin in shimmering prints and a palette of soft blues, petal pinks, and jonquil yellows that recalled Monet's water-lily paintings.

Nina Ricci showcases inspirations of the house association's: Christian Bérard, who created many images for the Ricci perfumes; Marc Lalique, who designed L'air du Temps bottle in 1951; and Jamin Janet, a sculptor who conjured up the decor of Ricci's couture house. These influences translated into a perfectly lovely mix of the practical and the giddily, hopelessy impractical and irresistible for a woman who mixes day and evening effects with abandon.

A trench coat was shrugged over a short tutu froth of ivory chiffoninset with lace for the opening look; spirals of silk gauze whirled around the body and fronds of ostrich fluttered beneath layers of smokey satin organza; sequin flowers bloomed on shrunken twinset ...

An ivory crepe shirtwaist and a pinafore wrapper of soft pink showed that Peter Copping can also do unemebellished feminity well and stay true to his mantra of the season, to create something "very up and feel good."
