Thrill of the Chaise has been a pretty quiet place recently...but for excellent reason. If you were following the blog in September, you would have read this post about my time working with Ruffian on their Spring 2013 show (which was too cool for school, by the way, Marie Antoinette goes to Williamsburg, Brooklyn in candy-colored Converse). I've had the pleasure of working with the lovely Brian & Claude here and there since then but have been in the studio with them full-time in the race to New York Fashion Week. AND I'M EXCITED.
Their Fall 2013 collection 'Reverie' is already gaining attention with news on their gorgeous collection with Frye, as well as a gorgeous feature in WWD with a sketch from the collection. Seeing the collection really take shape has been amazing and I can't wait to see it walk down the runway! So I wanted to invite you all to follow Ruffian on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@ruffianboys). We will be keeping you up-to-date in the days and moments leading up the show this Saturday.
Always wanted to see what a show inside the tents of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week looks like? For the first time ever, you'll be able to catch the live stream of the Ruffian show on Saturday, November 9th (yes, this Saturday!) at 9am on the official MBFW website. As someone who has been getting up-close and personal with the Fall collection over the last few weeks, I can tell you it's gonna be incredible. Want an idea of what to expect? Sherlock Holmes visits an opium den in the Bowery at the turn-of-the-century. In summary, it's gorgeous and ridiculously cool.
