After enjoying Ruffian’s collection last season, I don’t know if I can say I’m a huge lover of the Spring/Summer 2012 collection. While there were some great pieces coming down the runway, others looked a bit too playful. Taking their inspiration from their last vacation in Saratoga Springs which is popularly known for horse racing, the sporty collection portrayed a great deal of color blocking and lines, alike those found on the jersey of jockeys. The stars of the show became a plethora of bright colors, as they fused their ever-trimmed and tailored designs like turtleneck shirt-jackets, and slim fitting knee-length skirts with bright silk fabrics, ranging from green and yellow, to pink and blue. Their usual chic and strong silhouettes came with chiffon shirts, and dresses which didn’t appear that much within the show, but for summer they definitely got an A+ for their stunning swim suits. Although many (including me) may not have enjoyed the show as much because of its literal interpretation of ‘sportswear’, creativity has no limits. Once again, I congratulate the Ruffian boys on another season well done, and look forward to their collection next year. Check out my few favorites, along with the entire collection below.
