Ruffian Directs... Fergie in Tokyo... YSL's "New Vintage" Encore...

Ruffian’s Brian Wolk and Claude Morais may have just introduced their spring collection, but it’s hardly R&R time.

MATCH POINT: Ruffian’s Brian Wolk and Claude Morais may have just introduced their spring collection, but it’s hardly R&R time for the designers. Instead, they’re busy at work on a new line, this one for Anthropologie. The duo recently signed a four-collection deal with the retailer, the first of which will land in 55 stores in November. Named Mise en Scene (“the complete aesthetic, or the gestalt,” says Wolk), the lineup features both clothes and housewares. The sartorial stuff includes a Forties-inspired camel coat, silk dresses and blouses with an original print designed by the pair, as well as hand-seamed hosiery. As for the home, there are candles produced by French firm Cire Trudon and silver degradé glasses. (For spring, Wolk and Morais are drumming up a bigger collection, one that will include bedding.) Wendy Wurtzburger, Anthropologie’s chief merchandising officer, worked closely with the designers for the collection. “There’s really something special and so accessible and beautiful about it,” she said. “They really pushed to have what was right for their aesthetic but also what would be right for our customer. They’re so great at creating magic and mystery.”
