New Paris Collections: Rick Owens, Nina Ricci, Ann, and More

It was a big day for shows in Paris, and quite a somber one at that: black dominated the runway at Ann Demeulemeester, who softened up her looks with sheer, floaty fabrics. Rick Owens also stuck to a mostly colorless runway, with the exception of some copper-colored maxi skirts. Meanwhile, Nina Ricci layered structured bralettes beneath boxy jackets and lacy shirts; the latter part of his collection bloomed into vivid florals and fluttery dresses in lavender and red.
