(PARIS) Nina Ricci
She starts out gothy, cycles through a chic grandma's closet worth of cardis, a splash of skirt suiting, some flapper-apropos gowns rife with fringe and spangles: the Ricci lass is set to go (almost) anywhere with the latest slew of offerings. A fleeting moment of torn-up, off-the-shoulder turquoise was a bit of a miss, but the slinky, thigh-slit gownage in evening-apropos shape made it work. One might not be entirely sure who the Ricci customer is from such a smorgasbord, yet there are some wins worth looking at in the mix.
Witchy chic dominated the nearly all-noir spate at Ann Demeulemeester, in a swirl of capelike shawls and billowing scarves grazing the runway and almost framing the brief hemmed gams display throughout. A tinge of the futuristic came via a splash of silver leggings, shorts, and squarely shouldered blazers cut at the midthigh. Sleek tresses, shiny, center-parted and reaching mods' midriffs. Occult-ish but not overt, looks like Demeulemeester has done it again.
