Nina Ricci RTW '09

I think the 80s are baaacckk....(in a gorgeously-modernized, non-tacky way, as illustrated by Nina Ricci's '09 RTW collection)

Love the boots in this first look. A take on the 80s combat boots, but tres chic!
Corseted peplum waist with ruffled layers of amazing sheer fabric.

A sexy, sparkle-y suit topped off by a structured blazer and sky-high platform boots = 80s glam rock reinvented.

Shoulder pads reincarnated?

Asymmetry updated with an attached necklace, elbow-length gloves, and tone-on-tone colors.

Amazing. Architectural while remaining ever-so-soft with cascading ruffles.

So...verdict? Are the 80s making a(nother) comeback? I love this collection...and I'm really craving some platform combat boots.
