Autumn Winter 2017 / 2018
A/W 17/18 runway looks
A/W 17/18 WOMEN THROUGH THE LENS
A portrait of women, the Ralph & Russo Autumn Winter 2017/2018 collection takes inspiration from the identity and natural beauty captured by the grand masters Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton & Norman Parkinson.
Enthused by light and animation, this season’s palette is iridescent; a flash of ice mints and pearlescent lavenders, aqua blue double satins and crystal mesh in rose-gold hues.
Embroidery is crystallised like a photograph in time, whilst motion is captured in the movement of devoréd white feathers, fluid draping, floor sweeping trains, ribbons of metallic chainmail and wide leg trouser suits.
Capturing contemporary female beauty through the lens of Creative Director, Tamara Ralph, the collection is testament to the values that both photography and couture share; the unique ability to emulate an individual’s personality and soul.
