Pre-Fall 09: Nina Ricci

Not official, but I've always think that for cruise seasons, designers would tend to add more wearable pieces to fill up the time gap between pret-a-porter and couture shows, as well as filling up the racks that might be more appealing to their customers.

If this logic applies, Olivier Theyskens surely empitomize it with his latest pre-fall collection for Nina Ricci.
Some of the more unexpected pieces would have to be the leather jackets. SO NOT Theyskens anyone?

Besides the usual use of satin, velvet, and the Victorian floral dresses, I would have to say that the other focal point of the collection would have to be the accessories. It's the first collection ever from Theyskens to show bags. A little too far to see in details, but from what I can see, I think Theyskens should just focus more in apparels.
