This season’s colour palette is derived from minerals: shimmering ice-pastels, flashes of mirrored gold, and traces of hyper-glossed jet black. Contrasting textures can also be found throughout as feminine smoky pink cashmere turtlenecks oppose oversized houndstooth outerwear, whilst liquid double satin silk tuxedos and crunchy metallic leather skirts ensure our cosmopolitan muse knows no bounds.
Bespoke debossed buttons highlight the house codes of traditionalism and creativity, offset by rubberised leather details heeding to adventure. Free-spirited yet bold, the Ralph & Russo woman is equipped to encounter the farthest corners of this world.
