In July 2012, NINA RICCI, together with Chinese fashion and creativity magazine launched “Love is like breathing” NINA RICCI L’AIR new fragrance in the cross-over conception show in DONGLIANG store. In the show, a mini collection inspired by L’Air and designed by Manchit Au, was displayed as well. This was not only DONGLIANG’s first cooperation with international fashion brand in a cross-over project, but also NINA RICCI’s first cooperation with Chinese fashion designers. The collaboration among NINA RICCI, DONGLIANG and Manchit Au aimed at illustrating the love and confidence through Chinese designs and from the perspectives of Chinese women.
Using L’Air as an inspiration, designer Manchit Au was especially invited by DONGLIANG to produce a mini collection with new Japanese transparent tulle and pale pink heavy silk. Designer Nana and her team also helped Manchit Au to make the fantasy of the silk chiffon L’Air dress a reality. Meanwhile, the dessert artist Vivian expressed the sensation brought by the L’Air fragrance through her dreamy desserts.
