Former Nina Ricci designer Peter Copping took the reigns for the label’s fall-winter 2015 collection shown on Tuesday during New York Fashion Week.Copping’s approach appeared to pay homage to the late Mr. De La Renta with an outing of ladylike looks that ranged from day to night. The show was opened with an elegant black bouclé coat, its pockets frosted with jet embroidery, its flared skirts hovering just on the knee, and a roll-neck ivory blouse lighting its jewel neckline. There were plenty of Oscar-isms, of course, like the prettily ruffled Edwardian blouses softening the tailoring, and playful little cha-cha dresses, reimagined with intriguing neckline treatments and cutaway swimsuit backs. And Copping’s nuanced color mixes included touches such as a cantaloupe shoe worn with a full-skirted petunia day suit, or cyclamen kid leather opera gloves paired with a mustard puffball evening skirt. Copping also offered his own vision of the Oscar de la Renta woman with a sleek selection of gowns such as a burgundy number modeled by Josephine Le Tutour.
