Paris S/S 09: Nina Ricci

When I was a kid, I'd somehow got the impression that Nina Ricci was for old people (yes, I got started into fashion very early). I am definitely much wiser now (either that or Olivier Theysken performed a miracle), because the Nina Ricci collection this season was anything but old.
There were lots of tulles and leggings. The color palette was a nuetral cream, pale and nude. The shape of the skirts, short and modern in the front, but soft and overflowing behind them, were beautiful. There was also a big shoulder silohoeutte thing going on that contrasted well with the soft flows of the dresses. I especially loved the white big shoulder leather jacket (left) over the super feminine dress.
The rest of the runway was interesting. There were lots of shorts and t-shirts, and leotard looking outfits (left), that looked more like day to day home wear (or ballet costumes) than ready-to-wear. Then there were super heroe inspired ball gowns. Perhaps this is an extension of Christina Ricci's gorgeous red super heroe dress for the Met Costume Institute Gala this year?

HAHA I ALWAYS THOUGHT THE SAME THING, until recently.

Tulle + powder pink + cream = lush.

It's like the same colour of the Gap skirt and CK dress I was lusting after when you came to visit BOS.

I agree. Never really payed that much attention to Nina Ricci as it is more the sort of stuff my Mum might wear but I love this collection

Nina Ricci was one of my top 10 favorites! (in every single fashion week for s/s 09 r-t-w season).

I guess I disagree with the majority. These wearable objects, whatever they are, look like Project Runway rejects. I won't call them dresses: that would be disrespectful to the term.

I love the use of neutrals, especially off white. It is a nice contrast to all the jewel tones we are seeing this fall. Although, if given the choice, I prefer the jewel tones. I love bright colors!

Still, great collection.

On Ricci's dress, I originally saw it on eonline.com in the fashion police section and hated it (I believe I Sham'd it!). However, I didn't realize she was at a themed party. Now I have a new appreciateion for it. It's a great super hero themed dress!

Shoulda Glam'd it...

OK. I like the first two pictures. But the last two? Ick. The leggings are disgusting. It looks like she put on a pair of panty-hose and then forgot to leave the house before putting on her skirt.

Nina Ricci really rebranded in a couple of years. i did not like the brand when it emerged but now it is coming up and improving day by day.

NICE COLOR PALETTE AND IDEA FORMATION. BUT, I CANT SEE THIS BEING WORN. IT LOOKS MORE LIKE SOMETHING YOU WOULD PUT IN A AIR TIGHT GLASS CASE. HONESTLY IT LOOKS LIKE THE INSPIRATION WAS THE GOOD WITCH FROM WIZARD OF OZ. JUST MORE METALLICS.

I like the soft muted colors. One can always take inspiration from parts of a collection..you don't have to love the outfit head to toe! By the way, these models are TOO SKINNY!! Am I the only one who notices this? Someone please give these girls a plate of pasta!
