In October 2018, Nina Ricci appointed a couple of young fashion designers: Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh. Both Dutch, he trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and she at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. They won the prize at the International Fashion Festival in Hyères in 2018 for their playful men's fashion collection, inspired by observing the wardrobe of young Caribbean immigrants to Europe and fishermen from the Caribbean region.

For this first collection, Lisi Herrebrugh confided to the press that she had started from a blank page to compose this collection by drawing on the house's archive collection.

Elegant, the silhouette of passage n°34 is covered with a large bell hat inspired by those in fashion at the beginning of the 60s. The long, slightly oversized anthracite woollen coat is illuminated by an electric blue jersey application in the shape of a swimming costume, inspired by the baskets kept in the Nina Ricci archives. This offbeat element of surprise that awakens the uncluttered chic of this silhouette is the same as the one deployed in their own brand, Botter.
