Ruffian show is said to be one of the best of the whole FW 08. It took place at a tiny dance studio at 8th Avenue in New York. Ruffian’s designers, Brian Wolk and Claude Morais focus on one very specific look: the Elizabethan ruff. Tweeds, wools, silky blouses, bishop or belled sleeves are their trademarks. This time, they have added some denim accents and made it one of the most admired FW 08 collections.
The process od creating fall 08 winter 09 collection involved a collaboration with a denim house called Earnest Sewn. The main idea of the show was to dress the greatest models of today – like for example Agyness Deyn – in English school boy themed clothes. That’s why the overal looks of the models wearing their outfits is said to be slightly androgynous.
