The ocean, a perennial source of awe and optimism, was the source of Lisi Herrebrugh and Rushemy Botter’s Spring/Summer 2022 outing for Nina Ricci – on par with their offering over at BOTTER this season -, if you couldn’t tell right away from the crèpe column skirts layered with fishnet knits, gabardine culottes flare with cut-out hip details referencing surfer’s wetsuits and boardshorts, 3D printed mesh mules with glossy cylinder “snorkel” heels, rubber bags and bustier or flowing chiffon paréo dress that comprised the collection.

In lieu of a live runway, they filmed a video (called “Tomorrow’s Mermaids”) where the set was engulfed by walls of water and models plunged underneath. A color palette of reef shades like kelp green and turquoise brought the point home.
After a couple of transitional seasons, Botter and Herrebrugh appear to have found their groove back at Nina Ricci. The vibrant colors and confident constructions gave the collection – their most personal collection since they joined the house in 2018 – an upbeat, yet polished appeal.
