Chado Ralph Rucci Fall/Winter 2010 RTW

Up close and personal, you could really appreciate the remarkable techniques and exquisite indulgences Rucci is known for. Say, for instance, outer-wear pieced together from individually cut swatches of ivory chiffon, each embroidered with its own guinea-fowl feather.
The furs, too, were something to marvel at, be it a sable and horsehair coat that spiraled around the body like a slinky, or a younger, hipper style knit together from mink and fox. Young and hip aren't adjectives necessarily associated with this designer. Rucci has had trouble connecting with the downtown crowd in the past. This show could go some way to correcting that.
