Nina Ricci

I fell in love with Nina Ricci on my 18th Birthday, when I got a Nina Ricci Watch. It was the first time in my life that I saw a watch as an investment, rather than someting to just tell the time with. I still have this watch and it's a perfect timepiece. I love how elegant it is and how, despite being very expensive, it's not at all showy. It's definitely a classic and I know it's somthing I will have for the rest of my life. And that is how I first discovered Nina Ricci.

Nina Ricci was founded by Maria Nielli and her son Robert in 1932. Maria discovered her love of fashion at age 13, when she began an apprenticeship at a dressmakers.
In 1948, Nina Ricci launced its 'L'Air du Temps' perfume. The bottle is iconic: It has doves on it. I've actually grown up with this fragrance. It's my mum's favourite and I can't remember her dressing table without it. I think she discovered this fragrance in the '80's and has always had a bottle of it.

I love everything that the brand stands for: it is romantic and very feminine. Everything from their collection is so elegant, classic and sophisticated.
Peter Copping is the current head of the brand and the website has a perfect description of the Nina Ricci Woman: 'His Nina Ricci woman feels ageless and possesses an instinctive sense of elegance. Summing up the coquettish Parisian, she‘s playful but sophisticated',
'The Nina Ricci woman will be at ease with her age and femininity. She is both sensual and playful, always looks modern, and is armed with a sharp eye for cut, fabric and detailing'.

A/W 09:
Designed by Olivier Theyskens and I absolutely loved it! It was so hard narrowing down the pieces that I liked. Its very magical and dark, and really is perfect for the Autumn. I really like the all black and almost futuristic styles to it.










































S/S 10:
I loved the catwalk for this season. The colours are really nice and pastely and I'm loving all the neutral colours as well. It was the first catwalk done by Peter Copping and I really liked it. I'm particularly liking all the ruffles!








































And here are a few of my favourites from the brand:

Fabulous post! The Nina Ricci watch is lovely. It's so simple and elegant. Definitely a classic piece that you'll have for a lifetime!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Great post! I love her collection. It is so unique and creative. I love it when designers take a risk.

Cafe Fashionista said...

What I adore about Nina is that she knows how to make glamour and sophistication edgy. Very few people are able to do that. Gorgeous pictures, darling! :)

The Haute-Shopper said...

I thought it was a shame they got rid of Olivier just as he was making the brand a little edgier. I loved his FW09 collection as well. Like you, my mom always had a bottle of L'Air du Temps sitting on her dressing room table and I've always loved the style of the bottle. It's not a scent I'd wear myself, but it does bring back memories :)

It is a great time for women with the ruffle skirt making a return to fashion!

Wow, her designs are sophisticated and dreamy. Love it. If only I have the budget to buy even just one of her collection,that would be heaven. ;)

Nina is so inspiring. I love her looks. The most amzing is the top one on the left and the two long dresses they are simply stunning.

Maria Confer said...

Both collections are so stunning. I love your favorite picks.

my procrastination is getting worse too! right now, i'm blogging instead of being in class /: and the crazy thing is, i actually like class! i just can't make myself work right now. haha, oh well... it's bound to get better at some point, right?

anyway, i loooove these ruffles. they have the perfect effect- being sexy and feminine, without looking too little girl. i'm a fan! (:
