Raging Ruffles

Raging Ruffles

Ruffles are the pickles of clothing — you either love them or can't stand them. But despite this fact, they are everywhere, adorning many off-the-shoulder necklines; covering hemlines, sleeves, and even pant legs. 

If the world’s designers are right, flirty hems and new romantic ripples are perhaps how we should embrace our girly sides.

At Simone Rocha the designer’s subversive approach to femininity came in the form of frills that collapsed to the floor, while Erdem’s take centred on a period narrative with courtly waterfall ruffles inspired by Queen Elizabeth II.

There was a more graceful, romantic offer from Valentino where ruffles were structured over mini dresses and the shoulders of powder pink floor-length gowns.

It’s clear that frills aren’t going anywhere this season, but if you’re not a particularly feminine dresser don’t let that put you off. You see, this season there’s a perfect ruffle for everyone.

Ruffles are used as little, refined details or all over. They are made from precious fabrics  or simple PVC. And they can turn into true sculptures, even on sweaters. In short, for ruffles the sky is the limit.
