Nina Ricci SS16


The lowdown: For his second season at Nina Ricci, designer Guillaume Henry heralded a new age for the house's woman, putting forward a tougher, quirkier aesthetic. Skirt suits were swapped out for leather dresses, some with off-the-shoulder necklines and cinched waists, others with tunic shapes and chiffon halternecks, while gowns were eschewed for ruched, bodycon dresses. Sheer blouses in periwinkle and pale blue came atop PVC mini skirts, which were teamed with 10-denier tights and teetering white patent sandals. Coats came in Crombie shapes, either in thick duchesse satin or high-shine leather and cocktail numbers were decorated with tufts of feathers for a textured look. Last season's much-photographed sequined numbers were reimagined in sage green with chiffon ties at the back. In a palette of olive, mustard, black and lilac, this wasn't your lady-who-lunches type of attire - today's Nina Ricci woman is a little more modern than that.

Who we saw: US Vogue's Market Director, Virginia Smith

What they wore: Wide-leg trousers and Gucci's ubiquitous furry loafers
