Peter Copping introduced his idea of off-duty, at-home luxury for the Nina Ricci Fall 2014 collection, opening with a slate gray cashmere blanket coat over a python-printed lilac satin dress, a strong color combination on a look meant to suggest relaxing in one’s PJs under a cozy throw. More literal versions were to come with cashmere pajama pants and subtle lingerie effects, like a bra-strap closure on the back of a slipdress. Copping curbed his flirtatious side in favor of stately sophistication.

The majority of the collection reflected the sturdy opulence of upholsteries: bonded Neoprene wool, leather, fur and brocades — all beautiful fabrics cut into plush, if hefty, clothes. Two purple and blue brocade looks were done in curving hourglass seams. Coats were trimmed with pelt-like swaths of fur, and leather skirts came in thick folds. An Art Nouveau motif yielded a welcome dose of whimsy with iris prints on filmy silk dresses and gowns cut from crafty floral macramé.
