Unveiled at the Embassy of the United Kingdom in Paris, the Ralph & Russo Autumn-Winter 2019/2020 couture collection depicts a 1930s night outdoors. A lively scene, inspired by the Art Deco era, with flora, fauna in a majestic opulence.
Lensed by the creative works of artist and designer, Erté. Evening gowns are sensually draped and bestrewn with strings of pearls, thus 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 an ice-white feather. Embellished cocktail dresses and black bejeweled 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. A continued celebration of the modern female and her multi-faceted form, amid the joie de vivre of an era almost a century past.
