Copping Around The Clock-------
There’s no getting away from the little black dress, and Peter Copping designed a beauty for his new capsule collection for Barneys New York—perfect for a chic dinner out on the town, and accordingly called the 8 p.m. Avenue Montaigne dress (above right). But woman cannot live on L.B.D. alone, so the five-piece capsule, which will be exclusive to Barneys and Nina Ricci’s Avenue Montaigne store, includes options for day as well as night. And seeing as the Ricci client is an international type, they’re named for her various ports of call, too: The work-friendly 10 a.m. Palisades dress comes in gray cotton jersey, and the 4:00 p.m. Ginza dress (above left) in cotton eyelet; for a brighter evening option, there’s the 6 p.m. silk radzimir cocktail dress in a vivid pink Copping calls azalea. Mario Sorrenti shot Missy Rayder in the dresses, which go on pre-sale at a cocktail fête at Barneys’ L.A. flagship tomorrow night, with proceeds benefiting the Natural Resources Defense Council.
