London Fashion Week 2017
Ralph and Russo closed day one of London Fashion Week with a ready-to-wear collection that was not so far removed from their haute couture roots.
While far more wearable (read: daywear-friendly) than their usual house style, the collection as a whole still gave a courteous nod to luxury. The pieces ranged in style, so we’d like to think of it as one fabulous lady’s extensive summer wardrobe – with plenty of party options.
Many of the tropes of the Autumn/Winter 2017 trends were seen carried over: from sheer, nearly-nakedness to silken fabrics and assymetric cuts.
Overall the SS18 collection was definitely worthy of making our party season wish list.
There were some familiar faces on the catwalk; the stand-out being Maria Borges, who looked like a glamazonian goddess in a glimmering midnight blue gown with thigh splits.
The model line-up was diverse in ethnicity, although not so much in shape or disability.
