{runway inspiration: nina ricci, new york}

. . . and while we’re on the topic of sexy summer dresses, peter copping’s resort 2011 collection for nina ricci, inspired by jackie onassis and 1960’s greece, is pure ultra-feminine gorgeousness, awash in pale and pretty neutrals — shades of buttercream and blush intermingling with flourishes of ruffles and lace, perfect for early mornings in sunny cafés and late, starlit ferry rides . . .

{p.s.} favourite is the sweet sheerest lacy little white dress with a hint of august sunrise beneath — so lovely!
