It's Couture Monday here again and we welcome the new week with the exquisite Fall/Winter 2014 collection by Ralph & Russo. The Australian-born, British-based duo were inspired by photographer Massimo Listri, who has made an astounding art of capturing interiors. Attention to detail is profound and no (gem)stone has been left unturned to create this outstanding range.
Intricate embellishments and curlicue embroideries are composed across the palest white and lavender gowns (Set 1 & 2). Lush chiffon and silk crepe gowns sweep the floor with unconfined femininity and grace, glittered with sparkling crystals that attract the light like a camera lens (Set 3 & 4). Navy blue tulle dresses boast prodigious circle skirts (Set 5), whilst perspex and velvet floral appliqués bloom across deep plum dresses (Set 6).
The marbled and arched subjects of Listri's work can be seen via the exceptional curvature and construction of these couture masterpieces. Structured duchess satin gowns dramatically fill the stage with voluminous skirts that rise and fall in rhythmic ruffles and swirls in Set 9.
Ralph & Russo bridge the gap between the rigidity of architecture and the eloquence of evening wear. This is a look at their sensational Fall/Winter 2014 Couture collection.
