Harper's Bazaar - A Fling with Ruffles

Harper's Bazaar en Español
May 2013 Issue

If runways trends and fashion editorials are anything to go by, (and they usually are), ruffles are going to be hugely in vogue this season. Photographer Benjamin Kanarek captures new top model Sasha Luss in an alluring editorial for the Latin American version of Harper's Bazaar magazine. The Russian beauty takes center stage in an array of frilly designer wear, persuading even the toughest critiques of this theatrical trend.

This is possibly one of the most beautiful and cinematic studio shots I have seen so far this year. Sasha is spellbinding in a flamboyant scarlet red ensemble by British designer Gareth Pugh. Her flowering tier-ruffled flamenco skirt encircles a pair of chicly tailored trousers and is accompanied by a high-neck top with frilled bell sleeves.


Marni brings us the more toned down version of the ruffled trend in a midnight blue low-neck peplum dress with flaired skirt.

Retro meets ruffles in a cafe-au-lait shaded sheath dress by Marc Jacobs, the neckline is fitted with a cream frilled button-up bib.

Sasha strikes a pose in a two-tone asymmetrical black and metallic grey dress by Lanvin, with a sophisticated set of ruffles placed strategically on the shoulder and back.

Balenciaga are always at the forefront of innovation, mastering the art of architectural folds and flounces in this arresting black and pink dress with 3-dimensional peplum waist. 

Gucci serves up the ruffled trend in XXL for Spring 2013. Sasha models a cobalt blue pants suit with high-neck tunic featuring oversized ruffled sleeves.  

Sharp tailoring at Saint Laurent is perfectly contrasted with the frivolity of ruffles, in this white silk frilled shirt, worn under a slick black tuxedo.


With frills, come romance, as seen on the Spring 2013 runway of Italian designer Francesco Scognamiglio. He presents an ethereal ice blue diaphanous gown, gently caressed by soft ruffles lined along the sleeves, bodice and skirt.


Are you in favor of the Ruffled Trend, is this something you would wear?

I'm such a sucker for anything with ruffles: they are the epitome of feminine! I love seeing them on the others, but I have yet to fully embrace this trend, since I always worry what the ruffles would do with my hourglass shape. I think I'll just have to give it a try and see, right? :) These photos are really stunning!

Hope you are well, sweetie! Sending you lots of love,

xx Ivana

Though I absolutely LOVE the Balenciaga, Gucci, and Gareth Pugh - and would happily wear them in my dreams- realistically I'd wear the Saint Laurent and Marni versions in my day to day. I personally love ruffles and would say they are a classic timeless trend!

Ruffles are my favorite! Marni and Saint Laurent are my favorite from this post - These are something that are my territory and just the right amount of ruffle. A few other looks would look great for a red carpet event!

katie said...

Wow, that red dress is STUNNING in the first photo. It looks so different from the runway, the editorial picture really shows off the movement and the grace of the skirt and trousers, it almost looks like a flower. (Its so funny, it looks sort of interesting but "meh" at the same time on the runway but it really is just stunning in the editorial.)
The same goes for the white dress at the very end, on the runway it sort of looks like a very fancy night gown but in the editorial photos, again it just shines, it has such a mysterious, romantic look to it. It's so funny how it can photograph so differently!

I love ruffles! It's so feminine and beautiful! Although I am very short to wear some ruffles (really big ones), I wear some other styles, like shirts with ruffles, small ones. But I really love them and these pctures are so beautiful! As I said, I would love to be able to wear some of the dresses shown here!

ruffles seem so glamorous! tbh I think these styles will be difficult to pull off on the street but subtle touches of ruffle could work! :)

Ruffles really are one of the key trends and I am a bit surprised they didn't use anything from Chloe as it was one of the best collections to highlight the trend. And I just adore Sasha - have been in love with her face for a while now. x

I would definitely wear a toned down version of the ruffles like the shirt which contrasts so well with the tailored Saint Laurent suit. The ice blue gowns are such a pretty colour and romantic style.
