Since the arrival of Guillaume Henry, the Nina Ricci woman has taken on a more sensual, strong-willed aura, less imbued with the romanticism of his predecessor Peter Copping, who has flown across the ocean to Oscar de la Renta. This new approach was seen in the abundant use of menswear built into the feminine splits, necklines, transparencies, lace and sequins. A double-breasted blazer was worn with a Victorian-style blouse with a ruffled collar, oversize trenches and coats were layered over slip dresses or mini and mid-calf length skirts with high splits, mannish trousers were paired with little shirts with visible underwear. But there were also some exquisitely feminine outfits, mainly slip dresses with precious embroidery, in lamé or sequined, worn with opaque tights and court shoes with a strap.
