Nina Ricci Fall 2016 RTW Is About Romantic Glossy Textures

Each designer is known for his or her style of fashion, with certain expectations given to the fans about what the upcoming seasons will be looking like, no matter what the top trends of the time period are. Nina Ricci is no exception in this, as it has long been known for being among the classiest of the fashion houses we have on a global basis. Appearing on the Paris Fashion Week runway with head held high, it was clear that the Nina Ricci fall/winter 2016-2017 ready-to-wear collection would be a major hit.

Nina Ricci Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Paris Fashion Week

From the furry purple coat appearing second on the catwalk to the strappy grey slip of a glittery dress that fell second last, the line-up held quite a few gems that we are sure we do not want to go without, particularly not during the seasons where we are forced to cover up most. We see everything here, from the red ankle cropped pants to the dove grey blouses, the golden skirts with the center skits and the large number of black creations, the pantsuits with the oversized blazers and the open décolletage dresses; literally Guillaume Henry’s collection is all about the classically chic and we get to enjoy everything that offers in of itself.

The top trend of choice for the Nina Ricci fall and winter line is the center slit on midi dresses and skirts, the latter with high waists and near all with thin belts highlighting the hourglass figure. Things get pretty shiny pretty quickly in this collection though, including with the black pieces, from the slip dresses to the midi high-necked classics, the copper coats and the keyhole-slit pieces in red with the slit up the center of the legs.

Shiny miniskirts appear in brown, while the tulle used on some of the tops is super shimmery in the light. Dark silver skirts bring in the metallic with ease, while the moss green dress has its own manner of high shine. At the same time, there are lots of transparencies throughout as well, from the ruffle collar blouses to the tops of the black dresses, the lace edging to the pretty little midis and the high shine versions that show off the bras underneath with ease. It is actually rather interesting to see anything worn over the breasts under these transparent tops as well, since the trend has generally been to show off the nipples that lie underneath.

Out of the 42 different ensembles, we have to say that the pretty little spaghetti strapped midi dresses are our favorites for they are also the most wearable, but not for the autumn, unless we decide to head down south. The peep-toe and open-toe footwear rules the catwalk as well, though the pointy-toe pumps are equally covetable, if not more.
