British luxury brand Ralph & Russo presented their Fall Winter 2019.20 Haute Couture collection, inspired by the opulence of Art Deco era, on Monday July 1st at the Embassy of the United Kingdom on the famous Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, during the ongoing Paris Fashion Week.
“Lensed by the creative works of artist and designer, Erté, evening gowns are sensually draped and bestrewn with strings of pearls, exposing elongated hourglass silhouettes and emulating his Les Bijoux de Perle. Daring shades of red, pink, yellow and aqua are fused in ombré hues and juxtaposed with ice-white feather embellished cocktail dresses and black bejewelled smoking jackets; at once elegant and sophisticated, but with a masculine edge.
Embellished in true Art Deco form with opalescent fan-shaped embroideries and designs that are simultaneously geometric and spherical, this season’s collection translates the pastiche of influences behind the Art Deco movement into a continued celebration of the modern female and her multi-faceted form amid the joie de vivre of an era almost a century past.“
