this just in: lars nilsson to gianfranco ferré.


a nilsson for nina ricci dress, spring 2006

lars nilsson will be named successor to gianfranco ferré, who passed away in june. nilsson was most recently creative director at nina ricci and before that, was at bill blass. he will show his first mens collection in january and womenswear for f/w 08.09 in february.

yesterday the house presented the final ferré-designed collection, and it was not the homage to the famed designer everyone thought it would be.
