INTRODUCTION: According to French designer Nina Ricci, fashion reflects the times we live in. Ricci's winter collection, unveiled in Paris on Monday (20 July), certainly shows the trends for the colder days to come -- the accent is on sedate outfits indelicate materials, mainly two-piece suits.
SYNOPSIS: A happy marriage of colour and texture is shown in this trouser suit, with its plum-coloured wool jacket and deep purple tweed pants. A printed blouse in purple and black check, and a red beret on top, complete an eye-catching ensemble...
And now an afternoon dress in black velvet and flannel, effectively set off with quilted sleeves and hemline. The high collar lends a sophisticated touch...
Something easy to wear on winter days or nights -- a draped jumpsuit in bright red jersey material. The accent is on practicality, with designs simple, yet catching...
For the evenings the accent is on an oriental look. This dress in black satin, relieved by its decoration of gold stripes, is typical of Ricci's fashions. Black and gold reinforces the image of richness. And a lot of satin and silk as a reminder of opulent bygone days.
