Peter Copping’s final collection for Nina Ricci ended his tenure at the brand on a high note with a refreshing look at classic Parisian style, with nipped-waist silhouettes, décolletage-revealing necklines, lush fabrics, and a graceful palette. Copping’s reference points might have derived from the 1940s, but his fresh update and lovely Louise Bourgeois prints pointed directly toward contemporary trends.

There were ample opportunities to enjoy Copping’s splendid finale for the brand, with each look as accessible and welcoming as the next. There was nothing difficult about the clothes – they were gorgeous, understated, and elegant in the best way possible. The show was off to a minimalist start with tan suiting enhanced by flashes of Barbie pink, but one incredible nude slip dress with pointed bustier detailing hit a surprisingly sensual note given its simplicity. Floral prints were soon introduced, as were crocheted elements. It was easy to fall in love with Copping’s sweet, romantic notions, like an adorable crocheted sweater teamed with sheer sleeves or a crinkly pale-blue silk dress. Draped tunics, sliced leather pencil skirts, and ribbed sweaters were skillfully assembled for the everyday wardrobe, while a double-breasted skirt suit that featured a lithe, figure-hugging fit will make an impressive option for the office. Detail work became more fanciful as the show progressed, and lovely looks emerged etched with jet-black beading, noir embroidery, layered chiffon, and sprawling sections of flat floral appliqués. Although we are essentially losing Copping at Nina Ricci in order to gain him at Oscar de la Renta, it is still a little heartbreaking to see him go.
