RUNWAY: RALPH & RUSSO S/S 2014 HAUTE COUTURE

INSPIRATION:
I was inspired by the gorgeous Haute Couture fashion collection from Ralph & Russo for Spring/Summer 2014. Fantastic gowns, sophisticated, feminine & graceful. Just love it!

Exuding of allure, sophistication and utmost femininity, each look is a reminder of the glorious 1940s and 1950s: high points in fashion that were so magically captured by the likes of Walde Huth, Henry Clarke, Irving Penn, Willy Maywald and Lillian Bassman.

The power and drama of that era’s black-and-white fashion imagery is reflected in the cinched waists, the graphic silhouettes and the generous volumes of classic ball gowns in gazar and organza. Embellishment has been inspired by the romance of an archetypical French garden -jardin à la française – with ornate patterns intricately hand-embroidered on silk crêpe and Chantilly lace.

Graceful and timeless, the Spring/Summer 2014 collection weaves together exquisite craftsmanship, regal geometries and overall grandeur in an ethereal ‘bouquet’; a fresh interpretation of iconic glamour.

  1. These pieces are absolutely stunning. The first dress is reminiscent of Dior but adds the Ralph & Russo touch that we all like. I agree, I got a 50's vibe from the collection even into '62. Such a glamorous era!
