When it comes to haute-couture collections, I am most eager to see the Ralph & Russo one. I love the clean shapes, the sophisticated details, the late 50s inspiration, the impressive embroidery and the intricate lace. The white and pearled silver dresses donned effortlessly on the runway at the beginning of the show reminded me of Jackie Kennedy’s feminine style. The retro influences were then followed by ethereal gowns and dreamy silk or tulle dresses with gorgeous sweeping trains. See-thorough fabrics, floral appliques, beads and sequins completed the design of the dresses. The two designers played with volume and shapes, using asymmetrical skirts, impressive over-sized hats, sleeves and bows. Enjoy! (more…)

Ralph & Russo Haute Couture Spring 2014

ralph-and-russo-haute-couture-spring-summer-2014-runway-pictures-collection-dreses-fashion-evening-gowns-2I am very delighted with the new Ralph & Russo haute couture collection which gracefully combines understated elegance with refined beauty and femininity. The clean design is invigorated here and there by infusions of lace and sequins or impressive oversized bows. The classic color palette is complemented by delicate pastels, while masculine suits and tie neck blouses balance the profound feminine elegance of the evening dresses. Ralph & Russo has delivered breath-taking gowns for the red carpet events. I cannot forget Angelina Jolie’s sensational statuesque look, therefore I can’t wait to see more of what the brand has in stores for us this year. (more…)

Currently Lovin’…Ralph & Russo

Please, let’s all take a minute and admire Danii Minogue in this beautiful embellished gown by Ralph & Russo. Now that we are in awe, let’s also remember Angelina Jolie’s elegant white gown during the premiere of her movie, “In the land of blood and honey”, in the City of Lights. Then, we can’t forget about Beyonce and her Ralph & Russo stage outfits. And the list can go on…

“Every Ralph & Russo gown begins from individually designed hand-drawn sketches and is made the traditional couture way out of our London based atelier.Our couturiers drape, cut and pin the gowns to the body then bead, embellish and sew the garments individually by hand. Each gown is made-to-measure and can take hundreds of hours and up to 30 pairs of hands to create. ” (source: Ralph & Russo Official Facebook Page)
