IIt is great being a woman, isn’t it? Often I wonder if men are secretly jelaous that women get to dress up in fabulous clothes. They say it is a man’s world and yes this may be true, but oh the joys of transforming and embracing one’s feminine side through fashion. There is nothing more breath taking then an impeccably dressed woman and for all intent and purposes, Peter Copping knows how to create clothes for just such a woman.
It seems his Spring 2015 collection was influenced by a volume of books celebrating 125 years of National Geographic. Well I am sure he would be tickled pink to know that I work in the same building as the National Geographic offices, which I only recently discovered when the elevator despite my button pushing request to stop at the 13th floor sailed past said stop and deposited me at the top most floor, upon which the doors flew open and I was face to face with a spacious sunlight office and an over-sized lit up poser of a National Geographic cover featuring Abraham Lincoln. Nice to know I am in good company. Yes? And although the spring collection may have been influenced by distant shores, I would venture to say the pieces in this collection would be more at home in Soho (on both sides of the pond) then a dusty sweaty safari. With an ultra feminine aesthetic and obvious love for the classic silhouette the clothes in this sophisticated line are at once engaging and restrained. With romantic touches and unexpected twists the pieces featured in this line could equally be worn for day at the office or for a care free day strolling the boulevard. From white lace coveralls-yes you heard that right, to pencil skirts in arresting yet lady like prints to sexy minis, and layered maxis this collection is not for the tomboy in you. 1940s inspired frocks, and decidedly body conscious pieces give the over feel of a demure yet sexy vibe, and the exquisite use of lace, folk art like floral prints, and traditional tweeds give the line that certain je ne sais quoi the brand is known for. And I for one say bravo! Quite the master piece isn’t it?

I would gladly wear all of these: the ditsy-like printed matching skirt suit, and the textured bouclé jacket is amazing. I WANT the lace overall, haha. What a gorgeous collection that’s all very practical and wearable. Have a great weekend. 🙂 /Madison

For some reason, Nina Ricci is a brand that I always overlooked, it’s the same in Malaysia, I rarely hear anyone gushing about it. I really like the look of this collection, very sophisticated and classy.
