Nina Ricci indulges our romantic side for Fall '11. As always, the collection speaks to the epitome of femininity in the form of delicate fabrics — lace details and embellishments on headbands and collars — silhouettes that hug at the waist and float at the hips, and a rich color palette that's at first dramatic and then deliciously flirtatious. There is a more mature, womanly side that comes to life in burgundy and black, long gloves, deep floral print on sheer, fluid fabrics, and velvet pants. Then we get the perfectly ladylike wear — thick coats and jackets cinched with skinny chain belts and paired with tights, platforms, and gloves. Of course, there is also that playful bit of romance that surfaces in bubblegum pink and baby blues on a full-length gown that's as elegant as it is sweet.
