Nina Ricci by Olivier THeyskens

Dear Shaded Viewers,


While we are waiting for Sonny’s photos, here are a few of mine taken at the refreshingly beautiful Nina Ricci show. I hope that Sonny will bring us an image of Olivier on the runway, he looked as beautiful as his clothes. Not shown here, but he also designed a nicely cut pair of jeans, something, I think, he refused to do at Rochas. The one wall of the tent was transparent so the public could also watch the show.




After the show I ran into Robin, the buyer from Maria Luisa and Andy, the producer of 80% of the Swiss fabrics used by Olivier Theyskens in this collection.

Later for Sonny’s pics,


This is the real mood when fashion week is finally over, pictured here is David from FFI and our man Sonny after the Nina Ricci show which was yesterday, the last day of fashion week. I’ll meet up with Sonny tomorrow and get the rest of the fashion week images so that I can post them for you.

David Flamee and Sonny Vandevelde
