For his Spring 2011 collection, Raoul Ramirez takes on tints of aluminum, tarnished and hammered into elegant ensembles.
Rock n’ roll, glitz, hoods, jumpers, flowing gowns all in dark iron finishes. Black, silver, gray, gradient, gradient, gradient. Embellishments, beads, details. Basically, it was a collection of showpieces that go from daywear to more formal eveningwear. It was an industrial fantasy that broke down typical structures for an array of modern silhouettes. Since New York Fashion Week, the point has been drilled in: for once, spring isn’t really about bright, sunshiney color anymore.—D-SIÓN
