This fall collection focused on earthy, subdued tones but dressed up in satin and silk fabrics. We saw more pants than skirts, covered necks and shoulders, and still the romanticism of Nina Ricci was as as present as ever. The use of marigold and violet provided a much needed element of surprise when the looks were starting to blur together, while the baby blue hue failed to add that eye drawing element that would have better tied this 50 piece collection together in a less obvious tradition. Overall, the sheer, gorgeous, flowing garments stayed true to the RIcci name and certainly brings something to the fall ’08 table, especially compared to the popular and predominant heavy blacks we’ve become accustomed to seeing.
