Chadò Ralph Rucci | Fall 2011/Winter 2012 Collection | VIDEO Recap

See the video recap of Chadò Ralph Rucci’s showing of his Fall 2011/Winter 2012 collection

In New York, Ralph Rucci is a king. His collections are as beautiful as they are precious. His workmanship is unparalleled and his trademark style is unique, and he is often referred to as America’s haute couture designer.

He is the only designer in the United States that has a distinctive trademark look. This is extremely rare –  Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Sonia Rykiel are the only other designers that similarly come to mind.

His strong Anglo-Saxon designs usually have a recurring Asian sensibility that keeps the lines clean, yet allows volume to play with their minimal proportions. This season, he maintained his vocabulary but decided to energize it with vivid colors and some prints. Why shouldn’t we expect this from a true creative genius?

As usual, Ralph Rucci chose some of the world’s more precious materials for his latest collection. His intellectual material play doesn’t go unnoticed either. Scarlet rinsed chinchillas and sables in tailored coats or on traditional cashmere shawls are not simply breathtakingly beautiful, they are an ode to the clients who choose to wear them.

    […] Ralph Rucci is the closest thing to a national treasure when it comes to American high fashion. He is one of a handful of designers in history who has developed a style so distinct that it is recognizable the world over. This collection was undeniably younger, exuded a newly rediscovered sense of femininity, and looked ultra-luxe still, but with a flirty wink this time. We are obsessed with his fur treatments, especially his sleeves. His sheared mink sweatshirt  is a showstopper; his coat with red-dyed chinchilla cocoon sleeves is a forte in fur construction. […]
