Harris Reed’s vision for Nina Ricci‘s Fall/Winter 2024 collection is a captivating blend of Parisian chic and American cool. Inspired by a 1962 Richard Avedon photograph of Suzy Parker, Reed translates the image of a glamorous woman shrouded in mystery into a lineup that’s both sophisticated and playfully subversive.

The show opens with a powerful statement: U.S. model Colin Jones walks the runway in a black lace bodysuit and a pinstriped skirt, setting the tone for a collection that celebrates a confident and alluring femininity. Reed reinterprets classic Parisian silhouettes – think trench coats and ladylike dresses – with an 80s twist, adding elements like oversized sleeves and dramatic hoods.

Reed‘s signature wide-lapel suits and streamlined bows add a touch of modernity, while the inclusion of curve models like Ashley Graham showcases the brand’s commitment to inclusivity. However, the collection isn’t without its shortcomings. Sheer chiffon blouses feel derivative, and the overall edit could benefit from a tighter focus.

Despite these minor stumbles, the collection remains a compelling exploration of Parisian style through an American lens. Reed’s exuberant spirit shines through in the bold silhouettes and playful details, leaving us wanting more from this exciting force in fashion.
