Ruffian – Thoroughbred Spring 2012

The Ruffian collection at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion week. For Spring 2012, Ruffian explored their namesake, “Ruffian”, the filly racehorse and the society surrounding the racing world. The use of graphic inlays, colored silk, and couture details were abstracted from the jockey’s world, merging the masculine and feminine with sharp tailoring and a bright pallate. The inspirational muses were Charlotte Casiraghi and the Comtesse Jaqueline de Ribes. See images from the collection in the slideshow below
