Inspired by the maison’s couture shows in the 1980s and 1990s era, the Fall/Winter 2023 collection consists of tailoring, eveningwear, sportswear and denim pieces. 

Reed used his gender-fluid lens to create high-octane loungewear, extravagant outerwear and spotlight-grabbing gowns, accentuated by larger-than-life accessories. The collection is playful in proportion and silhouette, with an optimistic colour palette and youthful spirit. 

Other standout design details include micro-pleated tulle, bold polka dots, jewel tones and audacious silhouettes. Materials range from taffeta, tulle, Chantilly

“As a queer kid growing up in Arizona, French fashion was my escape. Nina Ricci felt like my idealization of Paris: it had a dreamlike romanticism, with a deep respect for femininity, but it ultimately felt light-hearted and accessible to every kind of woman,” said Reed.

“For my inaugural collection for Nina Ricci, I wanted to nod to the Maison’s extraordinary history and at the same time to reinterpret those feminine codes for a modern consumer in a poetic, humorous and fluid way. I like to dress individuals who want to have fun in clothes that have meaning and purpose. I’m so excited to usher in a daring new era at Nina Ricci that I hope will be more inclusive and exciting than ever before.”

Nina Ricci named London-based Reed creative director in September 2022. The British-American designer was just 26 when he took on the role and is known for taking a gender-fluid and avant garde approach to both his own style and his designs. He is a recent graduate of Central Saint Martins

Nina Ricci’s creative direction was previously in the hands of Dutch duo Lisi HerrebrughRushemy Botter
