Nina Ricci launches an airy, fresh and minimalist collection, prefect for Spring

Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh were the choice for the brand’s clean and calm direction. In the meantime, the Nina Ricci Spring 2019 RTW collection was produced by an in-house team put in place, outlining a feminine/masculine aesthetic.

The collection was considered a palate cleanser with viable pieces, like a navy technical nylon trench, an easy shirting-stripe silk midi dress that pulls over the head with little fuss, and mannish pantsuits in solid or striped twill.

Highlights from the plays on feminine/masculine, a house code, included structured pantsuits only in a feminine stripe, and a spencer with an integrated scarf lapel.

A simple black evening dress sported a split at the front and back to create the effect of a pantsuit in motion, while an elegant silk navy apron dress was based on an archive piece. Flowers, another signature, were referenced in prints and a range of petal dresses and skirts. Open-gauge knits evoked lace.
