Ruffian Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week is getting more and more feminine with every fashion presentation including the Ruffian spring/summer 2014 collection. The creative designers of the fashion house, Brian Wolk and Claude Morais claim to have given the Ruffian spring/summer 2014 collection an innocent and wholesome accent of Cécile, the protagonist of the French novel “Bonjour Tristesse,” by Françoise Sagan. However, taking into consideration Cécile’s doomed character, the collection looks rather fun.

The key to the Ruffian spring/summer 2014 collection is the collar. Almost all the dresses and blouses have either collars or collar cut tops, which give the looks a rather schoolgirl highlight. The laps of skirts and dresses are mainly wide and loose that seem to move gently under the hot summer breeze. However, tight skirts combined with suits can also be found here. The floral patterns, which resemble the newly blossomed spring garden, provide a rather innocent and unsophisticated character to the models.
No platforms or towering high heels can be found in the Ruffian spring/summer 2014 collection. Instead, all the characters wear very comfortable black and white pointed flats with sharp fronts and black fringe like details that look like eyelashes. However, this does not affect the attractiveness of the characters. Just the opposite, the flats combined with short dresses and skirts that show the long legs of the models add even more sexuality to them.

Very few examples of pants can be found in the Ruffian spring/summer 2014 collection. The ones that exist have a rather lingerie feel, however, when combined with suits no one will actually treat them as bedroom wear.
The colors of the collection are in more delicate blue, white and golden yellow shades combined with black and dark blue. The designer managed to create the character of French schoolgirl of the ‘50s in the Ruffian spring/summer 2014 collection, who looks rather attractive and feminine for the 21st century.
