When it comes to designer collections that strike my fancy, Nina Ricci is near the very top of my list. There’s something so simple about the way Peter Copping designs clothes, and yet with a fine attention to detail. For the Spring 2015 Collection, shown at Paris Fashion Week, that established lady-like poise returned, this time with a landscape of color. The silhouettes were loose and makeup was romantic. Biggest statement of all was the jewelry – with oversized gemstones eclectically paired together for the ultimate statement pieces. It’s perhaps, the loudest Nina Ricci has been in quite some time.
Other than the gorgeous jewelry pieces, I think the injection of brown into spring-wear is my favorite. Being an auburn hair, hazel-eyed lady myself – brown is always a flattering option. While typically thought of as a color for fall, it pairs nicely with yellow in springy pieces.
Not to mention, the fact that these clothes allow your body to move and breathe is a definitely plus. No one likes heavy, structured fabrics when it’s upwards of 90 degrees outside. Soft lace and chiffon are just what mother nature ordered for a climate changing world.
