PFW: Nina Ricci & Rick Owens

ΝΙΝΑ RICCI

Peter Copping designed one more beautiful collection for Nina Ricci. Inspired from the ballet dancers and their life besides dancing, he put through a classy and kind of sexy collection. Ivory, nude, red and of course the old time classic black and white ruled the clothes. The whole ballet-theme was more interesting, as there was a pianist playing live music on the runway. Copping knows how to make a woman feel erotic. Flaired skirts, bias-cut dresses from the 30s and low back blouses underlined the collection’s eroticism.

 

 

 

RICK OWENS

In one of his most successful fashion shows, Rick Owens used his three most signature pieces; the coat, the big boots and the ovrsized t-shirts. Being influenced by the Japanese culture, he reached his creativity in another level. Owen’s theme was “Battle-scarred heroism”. In most of his designs the superior colors were black and white, but the details, such as big-sleeved volume of kimonos and the needle heels, instead of Frankenstein-soled chunk on boots, made the collection unique. Furthermore, the clothes had a very comfy/everyday but at the same time fashionable line, that amazed the fans who fell in love with the collection.
