Why not finish of my reviews of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week with one of the newest designers welcomed to the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture: Ralph&Russo. New but no less wonderful, I might say. I wasn’t as stunned with Ralph&Russo as I was by the veteran houses of haute couture, however I did enjoy the collection. I found that the draping and fabrication of the garments were very nicely executed and looks lovely.
I particularly liked the classical appeal of this simple dress. I also really liked that hat and I kind of want to add it to my wardrobe. I find that the fabric was manipulated in beautiful ways to create the subtle effect on the bust and the very full skirt.
I absolutely love the draping and fabric manipulation going on here. I like the belt that cinches the waist and really pronounces the hips. I find that the neckline is beautiful and well crafted. I also enjoyed the simplicity of the whole look, because the craftsmanship itself was what really made this dress wonderful.
Hope you enjoyed the collection and found it was interesting as I did. I personally cannot wait to see more from Ralph&Russo.
