When we look at the use of color in the spring/summer collections it appears most designers were very modest. Not many of them used bright colors for their clothes. Instead they chose black or white, pastelshades, ivories  or nudes. We already saw the nude-look last season but this time it was more present then ever. Peter Copping proved himself as the king of the nudes in his collection for Nina Ricci. His models were dressed in  different shades of nude from head to toe. Even their accessories had the nude-look going on. Roberto Rimondi and Tommaso Aquilano only used four different shades for their Gianfranco Ferré collection, nude being one of them. They designed some pretty cocktail-dresses in transparent shades. Almost every collection had some nude pieces.  The nudes made most outfits look ultra-feminine and slightly romantic. Unfortunately it also made many models look pale. But that won’t stand in the way of the nude-look becoming even more successful next season. (Tess van Daelen)
