>> Peter Copping is in New York next week for a Nina Ricci trunk show at Barneys, but he's also going to be shooting his first campaign for the brand while in town — presumably for Spring 2011 — with Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
What else does Copping have up his sleeve for Nina Ricci? He said he hopes to expand into bridal and lingerie soon and would be interested in collaborating with H&M. But most of all, he's just focusing on building the brand. Copping designed for Louis Vuitton for 12 years under Marc Jacobs, who he describes as "incredibly precise." He added: "If there is one criticism I would make of that time, it's that we jumped around a little too much. At Nina Ricci, I want to be more consistent and true to the image of the house."
That said, he doesn't refer to the Nina Ricci archives at all. "Unlike at a house like Dior, Nina Ricci doesn't really have many iconic pieces. It's more about a romantic, feminine spirit."
