Designer Francesca Ruffini presented F.R.S For Restless Sleepers – EDITION X For Summer collection, inspired by a creative game of assemblage, with the latest lookbook.
“Imagine a puzzle, a charade or a creative game of assemblage, where players are patchworks and reconstruction of timeless pieces of silk, the SS20 collection proposed by Francesca Ruffini takes shape with the combination of classic silk twill scarves and timeless objects of a bourgeois and refined charm.
In an elegant exercise of cut-and-paste, prints with fantastic and dreamlike motifs – tarots inspired by ancient gravures; lithe giraffes and winged zebras; exotic sunsets crossed by flying paradise birds; sophisticated geometric motifs and bandanas – items are assembled and decoupled like collages, creating unique garments, to be collected as pieces of an enchanting mosaic.
Sumptuous dressing gowns are transformed into dust coats, created by the union of foulards, decorative illusions given by mirroring juxtapositions; shirt-tunics have irregular edges that combine scarves in different sizes and contrasting patterns.“
