Ruffian RTW Fall 2014

Ruffian RTW Fall 2014

 “Monastic opulence” is how Brian Wolk and Claude Morais described their collection of somber religious silhouettes in rich fabrics. But backstage, in what might seem like a disconnect, the duo said, “Ruffian’s fall collection is a return to glamour and a celebration of women.”

Religion and glamour don’t necessarily go hand in hand, although in this case, the designers somehow made the mix work. Delicate pleated mock-neck collars on blouses, a bishop bomber jacket in a unicorn collage print, a metallic matelassé bed jacket and a long, black robe-style coat over dresses that were cut away from the body.

Offering a lightness were a pixilated floral print on elastic-waist pants, a pretty frock and some pretty full skirts in soft colors.
