So far in my experience of this fashion week season, I’ve experienced season-less collections. Such was not the case at Ruffian’s Fall 2012 runway show. With the use of wool, corduroy, lamskin, lambswool and cashmere, it was very clear that Ruffian’s Fall 2012 collection was indeed for the fall (and winter). The theme of the Ruffian Fall 2012 collection called Concerto for Two was duality. Duality in Ruffian creative directors Brian Wolk and claude Morais collaborative approach to designing and the duality of feminine and tailored. And ‘feminine and tailored’ it was!
There was a lot of wool, razor-sharp tailored pants and plaid long coats that had a classic, Victorian feel to them that wasn’t dated. To balance out the sharpness, Ruffian’s Fall 2012 collection saw softness in blouses with frilly collars and bows. Dresses were form-fitting and sleek with nipped waists. Overall a beautiful collection, especially for those who are aiming to update their wardrobe with classic, feminine looks.
Here’s a few photos of looks I loved from the show (courtesy of Style.com because my photos didn’t turn out well):
