The last leg of the Fall Winter 2015 Fashion Week calendar starts today. To get you in the mood, here’s a sneak peek at one of the hottest shows to come.
The date: March 7. The time: 7:30pm CET (that would be March 8, 2:30am in SG). The event: Guillaume Henry’s debut collection for the house of Nina Ricci.
Why the buzz? All eyes will be on 35-year-old Henry as he takes on his biggest role to date. Yeah, he transformed Carven, which he left last September, into the cool girl’s go-to for pretty day wear. But Nina Ricci is a French instititue with an 83-year-old history in elegant, couture-standard dresses. Its previous creative director was Peter Copping, whose aesthetic veers towards the safe but remains one of the industry’s best-loved names (he had left last October after being handpicked by the late Oscar de la Renta to succeed him). Is Henry going to inject some youth? How’s he going to make Nina Ricci’s brand of femininity relevant? Some hints in the video above, but for the big reveal, watch this space – we’re reporting daily from Paris!
