New Nina

I was smitten by the Spring 08 Nina Ricci RTW collection:

And there are certainly a few lust-worthy items in Olivier's Pre-Fall 08 collection for Nina Ricci:

But overall I found the collection underwhelming. And doesn't this piece* remind you of Prada's Fall 2007 RTW collection:

* Despite the critique, I do like this NR dress. Perhaps the similarity between the two lies solely in the fabric or technique used to treat the fabric. I suppose I could do some research to find out...or someone out there could just tell me! Does the Nina dress involve felting? The top looks felted to me. Will we see more of these textures on the runways?
