Nina Ricci Spring 2009 RTW

One of the most beautiful and romantic collections for spring 2009 RTW season is signed by brilliant Olivier Theyskens for French house Nina Ricci. The designer focused on flowing, fluttery, trail-y dresses, short in the front and long in the back, which were inspired by dance movements.

He also threw into the mix his favorite references: "Edwardian" tailcoats, "Victorian" sleeves and high collars, jodhpur-like pants, a natural palette of nudes, purples and browns and delicate floral prints. The result was a poetic and ethereal gathering of long-legged fairies that wore sheer ombre-dyed tights and high-heeled pumps.

Olivier Theyskens, one of the few exceptionally skilled couturiers, uses exquisite fabrics and innovative structural details to emphasize feminine beauty and renew the idea of romanticism in fashion, detached from seasonal trends. I hope I will  soon see these dresses on the red carpet as they deserve to be in the spotlight.
