Meghan Markle, the most famous fiancé and bride of the year, wore a Ralph & Russo haute couture gown for the official royal engagement photo with Prince Harry. Women all over the world dreamed of becoming a princess or duchess and wearing a spectacular dress by Ralph & Russo. For the Autumn/Winter 2018/19 collection, the Australian duo celebrates the universe and art de vivre of Jacqueline de Ribes, a French aristocrat, designer, and fashion icon. It encapsulates the zeitgeist of the eighties and the golden age of couture through the frame of the renowned Comtesse.
Channelling splendour, frivolity and the palette of the era, the collection features an array of rich tones in the form of colour blocking; from bejewelled red liquid velvet column gowns and bronze faille moirée cocktail dresses, to royal purple chiffon paired with mustard yellow or scarlet red double duchess draping. Couture as both fantasy and reality reign true as lightness, convenience and transparency of vision are prominent throughout, reminding us that couture is art to be worn and that style as statement, attitude and personality, is intrinsically connected to the individual.
