Background: Nina Ricci -- one of the world's foremost fashion houses -- has opted for an improvement in classic style, rather than a radical change for the coming spring and summer. The couturier's collection was paraded in public for the first time, in Paris on Monday (21 January).
SYNOPSIS: A red two-piece suit with Corsaire trousers, over a fine-strap chemise reflects the mood Ricci has sought for the 1980's. A patent leather belt and matching earrings complete the ensemble.
Much of the collection reflects an oriental influence. Bold horizontal stripes of orange, turquoise, yellow and deep green mix easily with the brimmed red straw hat.
The subdued elegance suggesting established and accepted style is carried into the evening line. Once again an Oriental overtone is hinted at in this printed crepe gown with grey and turquoise flowers and a patent-leather belted waistline.
Some styles just don't change. A classic halter neck evening gown in blue mousseline halter neck evening town in blue mousseline with a full tiered skirt reflects a timeless quality, indicating the well dressed international woman at lest will begin the Eighties in fashions which are both delicate and feminine.
