Runway Report: Nina Ricci Fall 2017

For fall 2017, the Nina Ricci woman has found herself sweating it out in the Nevada desert as designer Guillaume Henry looked to rodeo country for inspiration. “I’ve never been to view Texas,” he said, “but this is what I imagine.”

Henry used the typical cowboy shirt as a template for coats and snappy shirtdresses while high-waisted, curve-hugging corduroy and leather trims amplified Western chic. Pushing the theme even further, there was a cowboy and bucking bronco print overlaid with stars.

The color palette showcased a range of pastels, earthy browns, beige and rust alongside pops of pink. The standout being a pink Mongolian lamb coat that was teamed with a high-shine sequined skirt.   

As far as accessories were concerned, Guillaume wanted them all. There were lace gloves and stockings, bolo ties, saddle bags and supersized belt buckles.

Although this collection could have easily gone very wrong, somehow Henry managed to create a lineup that was balanced, upbeat, and most of all, stylish.
