Ricci’s Dark Elegance – For fall 2012, Nina Ricci creative director Peter Copping delivered dark elegance with an autumn color palette of inky black, plum, burgundy and ash grey dominating the runway. Despite the gothic colors, the Ricci woman was still her ladylike self with fur embellished gloves, hourglass silhouettes and modest hemlines. Lush wool coats were matched with sheer chiffon pieces and heavy knits. Using a mix of the classic and the modern, Copping managed to give the signature Ricci sophistication a slight edge for the upcoming autumn.

Coats with puffed-up shoulders opened the show, featuring bright dresses in electric blue and scarlet layered underneath. Metallic detailing and graphic prints brought a futuristic appeal to the strong silhouettes. Besides outerwear, the autumn season also offered mid-length skirts and slouchy trousers.
Dries’ Eastern Fall – For fall 2012, Dries Van Noten embraced an Asian inspired outing with lush coats, tailored suiting and patterned jackets influenced by designs in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.

The Belgian designer’s distinct menswear influence loosened at times, providing delicate dresses and skirts in kaleidoscopic hues of citrus orange, turquoise, jade and ivory. Despite using a well-established theme, Van Noten brought something fresh and distinctly modern to the upcoming autumn.
