Nina Ricci -- Avenue Montaigne, Paris

Maria "Nina" Ricci and her son Robert opened their fashion house in Paris in 1932; Nina created the gowns while Robert managed the business.  Soon Nina's designs were coveted for her romantic and feminine style.  In 1948 Robert Ricci created the fragrance L'Air du Temps (Air of Time) and the perfume is still a top seller today (Rene Lalique designed the two-dove crystal bottle).   After Maria Ricci's death in 1970, Robert continued with the company until his death in 1988.

This fashion house, like so many others, has been held in the hands of many designers; Peter Copping, formerly with Louis Vuitton, has directed the design team of Nina Ricci since 2009 and continues to keep the brand elegant, feminine and most of all, current.

My photos were taken this week at the Nina Ricci boutique on Avenue Montaigne in Paris.  The mannequins are on revolving stands and it's divine to see every angle of the turnouts!   Only in Paris.... .  

Please watch my beautiful video of these fashions via this YouTube link:

My favorite photo....

Incredible shoes en soie

Love the pleated, rough edges of the bag

Shocking pink and orange....the perfect combo

Edgy and soft with sparkle

Another great combo....a heavy bling necklace over a chiffon scarf

This huge bracelet layering really amps up the delicate gown

Exquisite satin skirt in a beautiful soft peach

Also note the double belts.....

Raw and sparkly chic!

Bonnes Fetes!  oxox.
