Nina Ricci - Spring Summer Women Collection 2013 in Paris (ITW)

An ultra poetic prelude at Nina Ricci with a shower of white petals, in total contrast with the collection that clashes with its subversive side. Less "jolie madame" and more sexy, Peter Copping in charge of the artistic direction for 3 years places fishnet on tops, trench coats, or on dresses. Zips structure a straight slit skirt, a silk crepe dress, and a Prince of Wales trouser suit. The lightness of a bustier chiffon dress, a knitted wool jersey dress or a lace top embodies the spirit, transcribing the best DNA of the house.

Interview Peter Cropping:I think after 3 years, I'm going to start to establish the Nina Ricci code. It's very feminine, very light, a bit flirtatious, but it's only now that I think that I can really start to play with it, mixing this with harder elements. I think it's this contrast which makes the brand a lot more modern.

The house is known for dresses, light things, but tailoring is something that interests me greatly, a lot of attention was spent on cuts, and we often used masculine fabrics, so again it was the idea of taking something outside of the feminine world.

Here I see women wearing fishnet tights, so I liked the idea of coordinating this with shoes, but equally to use this on the body, often on jackets, there was a little tank top in fishnet. Towards the end there is a dress which is almost completely created with fishnet and also the one with polka dot prints, it was lined with fishnet giving it a subversive element.
