For the Spring/Summer 2013 show, Ruffian wanted to explore their love of couture within the context of Williamsburg, Brooklyn where they live. While the word couture didn’t come to mind when watching the models walk down the runway, it did make me reminiscent of my years living on Bedford Avenue. Sure, their were hipster elements – skinnies with oversized top, printed pants, skirts and tops, (and all matched with Converse) — but it wasn’t contrived or trying to hard. The contrast of the baroque counterbalanced the minimalism, street style, and luxury fabrics that were cut into classic American utilitarian shapes.
I took a video of the finale for you:)
Favorite looks… (I love the relaxed comfort of it all and the styling with Converse}
