Nina Ricci Catwalk Fashion Show Womenswear Paris FW2013
For his fall collection Peter Copping felt inspired by a seventies Nina Ricci ballet ad. He used the soft side of the world of ballet to create his contemporary yet classic looks. As the first models appeared on the red runway, lit by red lights, walking to the sound of a live piano (by Katia and Marielle Labèque) the right mood was set. Copping’s Parisian chic models looked flawless portraying some of his ultra-feminine silhouettes. They wore pencil skirts and cigarette pants, A line coats and strapless evening gowns in simple (yet perfect) shades of ivory, nude, red and black. Accentuated waists, bustiers, long gloves, perfect red lips and cute headbands brought an extra dose of romance to their appearances. Copping added modern touches in the form of unfinished dress details, visible bra straps a fur lined parka and a few bare bellies on sight. Just to provide the collection from becoming a full on back to the seventies ad time travel.
