Nina Ricci Brand

Thursday, 14 January 2010

Nina RicciLike Mari Adeland Niely, the founder of Nina Ricci Brand, who afterwards became Nina Ricci, the brand is one of the legendary figures in fashion world. The history of the brand goes back to its establishment in the XIX century when the 12-year-old Mary decided to go for apprenticeship at the tailor's workshop to lend a hand to her mother make ends meet. And the masters could observe that the hats designed by the young girl got highly demanded and were snatched away.

Nina Ricci worked scarcely all the way through her life moving little by little but surely along the career ladder which led her to the world fame in fashion industry. Each and every step of the modiste Ricci was triumphant and fortune loved her that is why can be simply explained why Nina Ricci Fashion House was victorious in the year 1932, the period of decay and crisis when everyone saved a cent and odd people cared for haute couture. And then, in 1932 as the Nina Ricci Brand appeared, the event would not be entered into the world history if not her son, Robert Ricci, who convinced his mother on appropriateness of such an enterprise.

Nina Ricci knew perfectly the needs and demands of her regular customers who preferred comfortable and classic tailoring of their clothes to extravagant garments of other fashion designers also popular that time. The first collection by Nina Ricci launched a two-piece dress, little black dress and classic style suit, and yet, the collection looked plain and rigorous though every single item was perfectly performed with the inborn taste and style. And soon after Nina Ricci Brand became the most wanted brand among the most bourgeois in Paris.

Nina Ricci won the fame around the world during the post-war period when the first swallow was released which turned out to be one of the priority trends of the House.

The image of a French woman is not completed and finished without a drop of Nina Ricci fragrance, and even if she is dressed in Nina Ricci collection wear. Robert Ricci was the first who created the first perfume presented by this brand. Coeur Joie, the first fragrance by him from 1946 just proved that the brand was still promising for new achievements. In the soonest time in 1948 the legendary and still demanded fragrance L'air du temps was launched by the brand. This perfume brought good profit to Nina Ricci, leaving alone the fame and acknowledgment. And the origin of L'air du temps perfume played the enormous role for the triumphant recognition of the fragrance. Robert Ricci invented that perfume for his beloved woman, and he was likely to throw in his inspiration he experienced that time supported with the passionate juvenescent emotions and his professional skills as a designer. Women from all over the world still go on preferring this romantic classic trend in spite of the changeable fashion stuff launched almost every other month by other reputed brands.  Today, when putting a charming bottle with a swallow on the night table and wearing some scent on the wrist and behind the ear lobe, a woman feels happy. The perfume is called «Air of Time», and it appears that the perfume is beyond the time. The other fragrances also became iconic and many of them personify Paris, like Premier Jour and Love in Paris.

Ten years after Nina Ricci House employed new designers who breathed a new life to the clothes collections made by this brand. The times of sixties and seventies were the times of blooming for the perfume industry of the house. As a result, another brand is separated from the bigger brand called Parfums Nina Ricci, and the dynasty established a factory to manufacture Farouche fragrances.

Throughout these years, Nina Ricci launches collections of clothes, perfume, accessories, jewelry items, and leather items and glasses for men and women.

Yet, in spite of the fact that the brand covers almost all spheres of human activity, it proceeds with winning new fields and expanding the qualification she already possessed. Nina Ricci became a young and active women-oriented cosmetic brand. In the nineties Time Avenue Company triggered manufacturing watches under the Nina Ricci brand. And, finally, recently in the new millennium the French Brand got down to manufacturing handbags, first step for the first time in the history of many years.

Some time back Olivier Theyskens left the post of the creative designer at Nina Ricci House who served for the company for many years with deliberateness. Thus, one partcular epoch of the Nina Ricci House came to its end, but another is on the way. Now, Peter Copping is going to create for the House who started his career supervised by Marc Jacobs. He announced that the brand would have a new image of an elegant woman rather than a young girl. The brand may be assumed to come back to its sources letting women refinement and elegance with the ever existing notes of L'air du temps that is always smelt in the air of Paris.
