1932. Nina Ricci established her Parisian couture house. A hallmark of elegance, it would become famous for representing femininity via a sophisticated luxuriousness yet intentionally relaxed style.

By combining sumptuous materials with soft draping, tailoring and her ability to capture the essence, Nina Ricci became synonymous with contemporary fashion. Her main goal was to channel the personality of every woman; proposing a classic wardrobe that favoured naturalness over ostentation.

It’s been an eventful year for Nina Ricci, which this spring closed its historic flagship boutique in Paris as it pivoted to a digital-first strategy and slashed its prices in order to make the collection more accessible. The brand is without a general manager, following the departure of Charlotte Tasset last month.

Against this backdrop, Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh delivered what may be their most personal collection since they joined the house in 2018. Their spring lineup was inspired by the ocean, a recurring theme for the pair, who grew up in the Caribbean and during lockdown set up a coral farm in Curaçao.

The look: Tailored jackets in hybrid constructions were paired with colorful layered jersey pieces and sun-faded prints for a city-meets-seaside aesthetic.

Quote of note: “We felt more free than ever to really be ourselves and express what we want to express in the brand, because we feel like Nina Ricci is a house [that] should speak much more about the time we’re in,” Herrebrugh said. The collection film is set against spectacular images of crashing waves and collapsing icebergs, while some of the models were filmed underwater. “We see the girls as mermaids, as almost guardians of the water,” Herrebrugh explained, adding that they hope to follow up the digital presentation with concrete action to protect the ocean, in partnership with Puig, the Spanish company that owns the Ricci label.

Key pieces: Sleeveless jackets with details inspired by wetsuits, like oversize zippers running down the back, graphic cutout details, and sheer detachable sleeves; hooded bodysuits, bandeau tops and gauzy wrap cardigans; jumbo fishnet tops, dresses and pants; terrycloth sleeveless suit jackets and pants.

Takeaway: After a couple of transitional seasons, Botter and Herrebrugh appear to have found their groove back at Ricci. The vibrant colors and confident constructions gave the collection an upbeat, yet polished appeal.

About Nina Ricci

Nina RicciBorn in Turin 1883, Nina Ricci moved to Monaco with her family. She then settled in Paris, where she spent 20 years refining her art as a couturier and developing her unsurpassed technical expertise. Steeped in Parisian savoir-faire, she pursued her mission to make women look beautiful with a youthful sparkle. When wearing her designs, they appeared subtly fresh and graciously composed; not unlike a flower in bloom.

1945. Robert Ricci, only son of Nina Ricci, created Cœur Joie, the House’s first perfume. His second fragrance, L’Air du Temps, became the iconic classic known the world over and that has withstood the tests of time and fashion. Its fame helped consolidate the House’s international reputation.
In time it was followed by three new creations: Fille d’Eve, Capricci and Farouche.

A fervent art-lover, over the years Robert Ricci gathered around him a team of artists who added their passion to the House’s creations. This rich heritage is still alive today and an endless source of inspiration for the brand and its perfumes.
