Peter Copping’s dreamy, 50s inspired collection for Nina Ricci Fall 2012 was, for Copping, all, “about nonchalance and comfort.”  Copping imagined a little girl playing dress-up in her mom’s clothes, informing the collections feeling of half-hazard glamour.  The collection had an old Hollywood feel, without being overly proper or put together.  Fur collars hung asymmetrically from collars, sleeves were extra long, extending below the fingertips, and silhouettes seemed just slightly oversized.  Copping merely hinted at an underlying sexuality, with suggestive, sheer cocktail dresses, some super high slits, and lingerie inspired pieces.  Overall, however, the collection was sweet and demure, in a palette of ladylike blacks, blushes, and creams, with undone pieces that still manage to maintain an aura of sophistication
