Up close and personal

all images from

During Paris Fashion Week I was lucky enough to be invited to look around the Nina Ricci showroom after their SS2010 show.
Having spent 12 years as Marc Jacobs right hand man at Louis Vuitton, this is Peter Copping's first full collection after his well received resort collection (which can be seen on the Nina R
icci website and in store now).
Peter took us round each piece of the collection, showing us the fabrics, details and work that has gone into each garment. I had already seen bits on Vogue but was not expecting to be so blown away by the intricacy and beauty of the collection. It was possibly some of the most amazing clothing I have ever seen.
Lamé, lace, embossed jersey, mother of pearl poppers, bows, ruffles, chiffon, floral and neutral colours.
Unfortunately, this will probably be reflected in the prices when it hits the shops.

I didn't manage to take any photos whilst there but go to Vogue or Style to see more from the collection.
