Nina Ricci: the era of Peter Copping

17/02/2015

Peter Copping at Nina RIcci HQ by Michel Labelle | retrospective of Nina Ricci by Peter Copping Spring 2010 to Spring 2015 via fashioned by love
My love for Peter Copping blossomed many years ago: at first through the clothes because I did not know those collections were created by him.

As I looked back (and learnt a few things about fashion) I've come to realise that my most favourite Louis Vuitton shows were the work of Peter's hands (Copping was the brand's creative director under Jacobs until 2009), so it was only natural for me to embrace his vision of Nina Ricci - my heart was already open, ready to accept him come what may... 

I would not ever say a bad word about this wonderful Brit even if he sent a paper bag down the runway (though I have a feeling that sort of paper bag would be very me). I adore him, forever, loyally and unconditionally. The charm, the talent, the sensual, delicate and feminine clothes. Those five years of Nina Ricci were a blessing for any woman who wanted to feel like one without having to explain herself... And it was heavenly...

Now, just hours away before Peter Copping reveals his first collection for Oscar de la Renta, I want to take a step back into his era at Nina Ricci and, once again, lose myself in the powdery beautiful dreams and moments of fantasy. Come along with me...

NINA RICCI SPRING 2010
"Peter Copping - formerly chief assistant to Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton - has arrived at Nina Ricci. He put together a look that can break down into real, mouthwatering pieces for retail... and proved he could lightly render the epitome of Nina Ricci-ness - tiered ruffles - into genuinely young {collection}. Nina Ricci is now in a safe pair of hands." Sarah Mower / style.com

"Flowery and feminine, full of pretty, just below knee-length satin slip dresses, 3-D haberdashery floral appliqu├ęs, and hints of the Belle Epoque positioning Nina Ricci as the Parisian answer to Alberta Ferretti." Sarah Mower / style.com

NINA RICCI SPRING 2011
"Delvin into the house archives.. - the history of collaborations with artists - Christian Berard provided the sweet palette; Janine Janet, embellishments like iridescent paillettes and crystals; and Marc Lalique, the lovely watercolour floral prints. And because Robert Ricci was one of his moher Nina's most important collaborators, Copping also had masculine touches among the signature ruffles and lace. "I wanted it to be up and feel good", he said." Nicole Phelps / style.com

"Unapologetically feminine and hopelessly romantic, yet with a modern spark. Sargent's Madame X was on Copping's mood board. Cecil Beaton's equally well-known 1948 shot of Charles James' evening gowns was also pinned. This was another step in the right direction for Copping and the Ricci brand."

NINA RICCI 2012
"Peter Copping cited the golden age of couture as a starting point. He named his Spring collection Zina after the artist Zina de Plagny, who collaborated with Nina Ricci in the 1930s designing prints, but there was more at play here than pretty florals. Lingerie was the central element. More surprising was what the designer described as his "Ricci biker lady". Nicole Phelps / style.com

"A scene of young girls playing dress-up in their mother's and grandmother's clothes. The collection had a sense of dishabille. There was a lot more bare skin on display for Spring, but this outing wound up seeming more provocative - like Lolita, but in French lingerie instead of 1950's American polyester."

"One of Copping's strongest collections, the organisation of the show loosely followed a woman going about her day: skirt suits and wrap coats for work, panama separates in knits backed with leather or silk to flax in when she returns home, and finally cocktail attire and gala dresses for when she leaves again at night."

"Nina Ricci show today was a lovely swan song. The collection was animated by what Copping called the "make do and mend" spirit of post-World War II - era Paris, an organising theme prompted by Madame Ricci and her son Robert's efforts to jump-start their business with scale models of couture dresses."
