Bringing ultra-femininity to the spring season, the latest outing from Nina Ricci offers ruffles, brights and feminine silhouettes. New creative director Peter Copping seems to be bringing the Ricci brand back to its romantic beginnings with a collection inspired by seasons past.

Presenting a mix of minimalist and luxury, Salvatore Ferragamo’s spring 2011 line has a relaxed confidence in its loose shapes and muted colors. Under the creative direction of Massimiliano Giornetti, the Ferragamo woman looks prepped for a vacation getaway come spring.
Spring 2011 marks Sarah Burton’s first season as creative director of Alexander McQueen after the designer’s recent passing in February. Burton has said before that she would bring a more feminine and tender quality to the designs, and the garments presented were certainly more softer than previous collections. With the play of silhouettes and textures, it is apparent that Burton is paying homage to the late designer with references to past seasons. Overall, the spring collection proved to be a more than adequate effort in paying tribute to McQueen’s legacy. One can only hope that we will see more of Burton’s own creative vision in the future.
