Summary: Chado Ralph Rucci is one of the true highlights of Fashionweek. There’s a reason he previously showed at the Paris Couture – his impeccably constructed garments are just as beautiful on the inside, and the silhouettes are completely modern, yet timeless. This season, a handwriting print added a fun, streetwear-inspired touch to tops & jackets, while a blanket of showgirl boa feathers was suitably fabulous for evening – although in these newly dressed up days, it would work just as well for day with black skinny jeans & a heavy duty Balenciaga’esque wedge ankle boot. A rich pecan hue proved a fab daytime neutral, along with a  shearling coat glamorously draped asymmetrically across the neck. The showstopping black taffeta gown with skirt of tent-like proportions & equally enormous cocoon wrap elevated everything, closing a collection which seemed more like glamourous couture rather than mere ready-to-wear.

Color Palette:
  pecan, dark chocolate, tomato, white with scribble print; rust satin, oyster, lime/chartreuse, mauve, purple, rust red velvet, blush, black

Textures & Details:
satin, taffeta, shearling, fur, feathers, burnout velvet with Asian characters, chiffon, scribble prints, stiff almost stand-alone belts that encircled rather than belted the waist

Key Looks: pecan sleeveless day shift with inverted box pleat skirt; tobacco shirtdress with dark brown belt that seemed to almost stand away from the body (similar to the belts at Alexandre Hercovitch); tomato skirt & duster over scribble print top; showgirl feather evening jacket; draped shearling coat; oversized black taffeta evening gown & ginormous wrap
