International fashion & style; Nina Ricci ..Fall 2014 ..Paris

Well well well... in oceans of shapeless, me too clothes comes a collection. In the literal sense, that has clothes... yes folks... real clothes... Clothes to be worn... Clothes that don’t require a user manual and clothes that speak for themselves. Merci Peter Copping... oh and did I say they were actually pretty! Well most of them anyway.

The wearable and salable at NINA RICCI ..

Paris is barely 2 days in and so far, with rare exceptions there hasn’t been anything to screech about unless of course you screech about how ugly most of the clothes are that we have seen up to date. Mr. Copping offered up a variety of looks, another rarity, and some real live day clothes… imagine the possibilities. Then there is actually the fact that the collection is a continuation of the same themes he started with pre fall and 2 primaries among them is salable and wearable … the horror!!

I am sure it is as boring for you to read as it is for me to ramble on and on about all the don’ts we have seen so my advice is to see the slideshow and think about real life... not Anna and Grace’s version of real life depicted on some fashion rag’s pages but the kind you see on the street.. Well granted not in downtown Duluth or Fargo but in the more urbane and cosmopolitan cities.

Time to speak up and let me know what you think about Nina Ricci and the rest of what’s piling down the runways…
